If we are going to be wearing masks for some months, then let’s get something that more fun than the boring designs currently available.
Australia needs innovation!
We can’t depend on the medical profession to produce anything stylish – just look at the shapeless kit doctors and nurses wear around hospitals.
Who’s going to solve one of the greatest challenges of the twenty first century?
We believe that the best people to design face masks that Australians will be fighting to buy, are cartoonists!
Let’s face it. Cartoonists earn their living by making fun of serious people and events.
The National Cartoon Gallery in Coffs Harbour is prepared to take the lead. We intend to contact our large network of cartoonists and invite them to design face masks that will cause hilarity on our streets. People will want to be seen on television putting masks on!
Above are just 3 examples of what our cartoonists can design
The only downside to this project is that Governments may have to dump the millions of boring face masks they have in stock.
We will be sending the best new designs to the Prime Minister for mass production. If he likes the idea, we will create an exhibition in our Coffs Harbour Cartoon Gallery showing the most innovative mask designs received.
