Crisis puppy Toby + local need for masks = Toby on facemasks

Submitted by: Bertis Downs

Materials: Facemask made of dishcloth, screen-printed and hand-sewn by people here locally in Athens GA

We got a new family puppy, a crisis puppy. She’s a Beernesedoodler named Toby and she was so cute I thought she’d be an excellent facemask model. So I asked a local screenprinter and a local seamstress to help me out and a few days later, here’s the mask. So far I am the only one I have seen wearing one but they might catch on anytime

I Miss my Mommy

Submitted by: Yang

Materials: Clay sculpture, fresh cut bloom

Monkey Mama Sculpture from Taiwan alongside fresh bloom from Mom’s backyard in Fremont, CA- cut & given to me the night she left 3/30/20. After 42 years in California, we sent Mom back to Taiwan for safety from COVID19. It’s a huge relief to know she’s in a country with zero new cases for 2 days now, but we miss her terribly. Couldn’t even hug her goodbye at the airport. Her zodiac sign is a monkey.

Old Man Dog

Submitted by: Oliver

Materials: Dogs, humans, concrete

Milton follows the rules and makes sure we walk with distance between each other. This pandemic gave us the opportunity to stay with my mom. Since rescuing him, Milton has been scared of other people and other dogs. But since we have been here, he’s become best friends with my mom, her dog, and her partner. It has been incredible so see how this isolation has been the opposite for him.

Bu & Karen

Submitted by: Kit

Materials: Cat, spider plant

Bu is the furry one; Karen is the leafy one. These two have been my constant companions while stuck inside. They have a bit of an antagonistic relationship—Karen is constantly teasing Bu with her beautiful long leaves, while Bu is always trying to get a bite of Karen. Their rivalry keeps me entertained, and Karen’s dry foliage and Bu’s too-early meows get me out of bed in the morning. I like that we get to share our lives together in this tiny space.
