Will Sliney designs corona masks for Easyjet

Sky News reports the comics artist Will Sliney, who's from Ireland, has designed face masks with illustrations of animals to be given to children flying on Easyjet:
A Marvel comics artist has designed "superhero" face mask covers for children flying with easyJet.

The move aims to help youngsters feel more relaxed on journeys after the airline resumes flights later this month with strict safety protocols in place for passengers and crew to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The face mask covers have been created by Irish illustrator Will Sliney, who has worked on Spider-Man and Star Wars comics.

They feature lion and pilot designs, and are to be worn over the top of a young traveller's own face mask.

[...] Captain David Morgan, easyJet's director of flight operations, said: "We have teamed up with a comic illustrator to create some bespoke children's face mask covers as we know the airport environment could feel different and possibly daunting for younger travellers when flying initially resumes."

Sliney added: "Flying with face masks is going to be a new experience for everyone, especially young children, so I hope these fun designs, inspired by comic book characters, help to encourage kids to wear their masks onboard.

"I have used a combination of a lion animal character and a futuristic pilot to create a set of mask covers to bring out the inner superhero in all young flyers."
Good for him if he's taking up such a positive example. Which is more than can be said for some artists stateside.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
