Masks & More

It wasn’t until after my New Shop Items post went live that I realized that I had left one of my new designs out, and that I hadn’t activated any of my face masks. So I apologize for two marketing-type posts in a row, but I really wanted to highlight both of these things.

I added the Epic Rainbow #LAFE with the #BLM heart to my Society6 shop:

AND face masks are now available!

If there’s any design of mine that you’d like on any of Society6’s products, and that isn’t activated in my shop – then let me know. Generally it’ll take me under a half hour depending on if I need to use special templates (like for the backpacks), to make them available.

Oh – and I am intentionally leaving the My Mask Protects My Community design off of my shop. FOR REASONS.

New Shop Items!

I just added several of my new designs to my Society6 shop, and that means that you can get more of your very own t-shirts, mugs, totes, high quality prints, etc. of my art.

And I’m debuting a new Pride version of LAFE! It’s my most vibrant LAFE yet, and I hope that you like it.

Right now Society6 is having a sale, and items are either 20% or 30% off! Head on over and find something perfect for yourself or someone special.

Libraries Are For Everyone: Ukrainian

Here is Sebastián Alarcón’s final translation of #LAFE. I am so very grateful for his willingness to share, and his patience with me.

I also have a variation on the translation from Angelina Kyian.

Thank you, Sebastián and Angelina, for these translations!!!

everyone to download, share, modify, and use my work.

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and the message. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you say that it’s by “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).

Libraries Are For Everyone: Nahuatl

Sebastián Alarcón, a language enthusiast, provided me with four translations of LAFE. I’ve already posted both his Guarani and Catalan translations, and there’s one more after this.

Thank you so much Sebastián, for this Nahuatl translation!

Mi Máscara

Claudia Depkin from Haverstraw King’s Daughters Public Library contacted me with a request: might I create a Spanish version of my My Mask Protects My Community designs? Why yes, yes I might. And did.

In case you were wondering, I chose the mask colors based on South American countries’ flags.

And I’m grateful for my friends who debated the best translation for this – you know who you are. Hopefully in the end, I made a good call to balance what sounds right and what works right for a bold statement.

Also, I want to thank RAYGUN again, for allowing me to base these images on their original work.

Finally, my offer that I shared at the end of my original English post, is also good here. Reach out to me with your color requests, and I’ll do my best to perfectly customize the mask’s colors for your needs.
