As we all have been impacted by the spread of the coronavirus no matter where you are in the world, it’s empowering to see how we all deal with the changes. New York has experienced a large number of cases and as we all brace for the unexpected, many are working to help those affected and the front line of health care workers. Fleet Hower of LOCKNESTERS has temporarily converted their New York-based studio from the production of art decor items like the Puzzle Dunny to the production of face shield visors for health care workers due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Locknesters is currently raising money to create more shields so if you have extra money to help aid them in this project, you can get more information about sponsoring face shields on the Locknesters Instagram or their website www.locknesters.com.

"I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
