[embed-1] Local artist Tim Banks is jumping on the coronavirus facial protection bandwagon with two new face masks, designed with monsters in mind. The masks are just $18 and can be purchased online.

The breathable fabric is washable and reusable and fits all sizes. Of course this mask comes with no guarantees that it will protect you completely from COVID-19. The CDC does recommend wearing a mask to help slow the spread of the virus — so why not have a little fun with it?

Banks is a Charleston-based illustrator who has created works for everything from posters for the Charleston Farmers Market to dozens of children's books, including Monsters in Charleston.
