Backstage | A Year of Masks, and Moments of Joy

Luckhaus Hybrid Mask by Jenn Maia

It’s been a year since I first started testing mask patterns, having no idea that this would lead to making my own and helping the helpers! It’s been quite a ride since, and I am so thankful for how mask makers make this dark time feel so much brighter. Yet, there are days when everyday life feels so far away… and then, there’s a new pattern challenge, a license enquiry, a kind donation, or someone who thanks me in a way that’s so touching – and all of a sudden, I’m sure we’re gonna be fine. Thank you so much, Jenn, for brightening my day with your beautiful mask! <3  

Mask Science | We need to talk about Gaps

Optimized hybrid cloth mask or fabric face covering as an over mask, outer layer, mask cover or sleeve; to make or sew yourself with instructions, pattern and template with reverse nose pleat for glasses, filter opening for space and drawstring channels with ear loops and head ties for a a gapless fit by Iris Luckhaus

In Germany, the wearing of medical masks, i.e. FFP2 or surgical masks, became mandatory yesterday. Since I don’t think anyone will check certifications in public, this means that everything except cloth masks is allowed. I’d like to explain how masks work, how filter and fit determine their efficiency, and why a cloth mask ban doesn’t really make much sense to me. Furthermore, I’d like to point out solutions for a more responsible, safe and sustainable use of medical masks. One of these solutions could be wearing a cloth cover over medical masks, or double masking.

Hybrid Luckhaus Masks for the winter season by NagaKiri

I adore these stylish winter hybrid masks made of chunky Pendleton wool buffalo plaid, which my sewing partner Kiri Schultz from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest made! In her family, they are jokingly called “blankets for the face”, which I find at least as pretty as the fresh fir branches and cones in the picture. I bet these masks smell great!

I have recently equipped my shops at Søciety6 [US] and RedBubble [EU + US] with fresh illustrations, field guides, infographics, patterns and some winter specials – and I was amazed at all the new products there!

Today, I would like to introduce you to my amazing sewing partners, who are making masks with my hybrid pattern and selling them in online shops, on Etsy or in retail stores. Each of them has a different approach to mask making, they offer unique fabrics and ways to apply my pattern – and I think all their masks are just stunningly beautiful! In the picture above, you can see some samples by Christina King, Reusable Mask Co Australia and Samook Designs.

Since I first published my pattern for sewing the Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless (even without nosepiece!) and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about adjustments for special shapes and needs. In this post, I introduce a selection of these customized Hybrid patterns, and every now and then (last March 8th, 2021), I add new ones!

Infographic | Mask Tying Techniques for Face Masks

Infographics about mask tying techniques, showing by the example of the hybrid cloth or fabric mask or face covering pattern several ways to fasten a community mask, cloth mask or fabric face mask with ear straps, elastics or head ties and knots, pony beards or cord stoppers and bun or ponytail, by Iris Luckhaus

If you take a closer look, there are so many ways to attach a face mask to your ears or head! After looking into masks in great detail over the past couple of weeks and having all these little sketches for mask tying techniques on my desk, I finally drew an infographic that shows all the different ways to tie a cloth mask with ear bands or head ties.

DIY Tutorial | Hybrid Cloth Mask Pictorial

Optimized, gapless, fog free and stay in place hybrid mask, makeshift mask, cloth mask, face mask or face covering for glasses, DIY self-sewing with instructions, pattern and template on fabric with nose wire or nose piece, filter opening and drawstring channel for ears loops and head ties by Iris Luckhaus

Since I first published pattern and instructions for my Hybrid Cloth Mask, which fits gapless yet roomy and reliably stays in place, I’ve been asked about making a detail tutorial for beginners and visual learners, but as a video needs at least 2-3 quiet days and a picture tutorial was possible to just make inbetween, I decided to go with that for now!

DIY Instructions | Sewing a Hybrid Cloth Mask

Optimized hybrid cloth mask, fabric mask, mouth-nose mask, face mask or face covering, gapless and fog-free for glasses, to sew DIY with instructions, pattern and template with nose piece or nose wire, filter opening and drawstring channel for ear loops or head ties by Iris Luckhaus

For my own production, I optimized the pattern and manufacture of the cloth mask, to make it fit snug and gapless around nose, cheeks and chin and reliably stay in place, so it doesn’t slide up the eyes or down the nose. Individual parts such as wire, filter and ties are very easy to replace, plus the mask is quick and simple to sew, wash and iron.

DIY Instructions for an Emergency Maskeshift Mask

I designed an emergency maskeshift mask which can be made quickly and easily by anyone without sewing, simply with home and office supplies. If handled with care, it can protect others from your droplets, but its use for your own protection is very limited. If available, please wear a certified mask! If you decide to use this one, please understand that you’re doing so at your own risk: Keep your distance and wash your hands as if you’re not wearing it!

After drawing the Emmy und Patty breakfast board for EmpaTrain (specialist for non-violent communication and mediation), I now illustrated the second board for them, which shows an empathy lab – with lab scientists as well as the multitude of substances, facilities and materials you might need to brew empathy on a laboratory bench. This time, my illustration will not only become a breakfast board, but also be printed on postcards and posters, and it will not only be used for advertising their services, but also as a descriptive educational material in seminars!

Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal | Grifflenberg

Perspektivische Schwarzweiß Zeichnung der Gebäude der Uni Wuppertal, BUGH, am Grifflenberg, für die MasterCard der Stadtsparkasse für die Mitarbeiter der Uni

Once again, I’ve been drawing for the Wuppertaler Stadtsparkasse, this time a black-and-white view of the buildings of the University of Wuppertal (BUGH) on Grifflenberg. My illustration will soon be printed in ten different colour schemes on the front of a special mastercard for students and staff of the university.  For this project, I had to work very different from my usual process – not only without outlines, but also without people, details or colours, but precisely after a photograph, with correct perspectives – and it actually was a challenge, but a lot of fun as well!

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Ausschnitt aus der Illustration von drei Freundinnen im Café, die Cupcakes essen, Kaffee trinken und fröhlich Gossip verbreiten, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Illustrations for a material brochure by Schock, a producer of granite sinks. My briefing was to contrast two different material lines by using the idea and mood behind them. So, this is my design for the younger, more trendy and astonishingly colourful Cristalite series: Three friends take a break from shopping, chat, drink coffee and eat pastel coloured cupackes in a street café.

A foldable little house for the Stadtsparkasse

Faltbares Modell eines Hauses aus Pappe mit einer renovierten und einer unrenovierten Hälfte als Erklärhilfe für die Bausparer der Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal von Iris Luckhaus

I just finished illustrating the outside of a collapsible cardboard house (ca. 20 x 20 cm) for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse. This little house will be used to describe renovations and refurbishings of an old house, and why those make sense. It has an old, unrefurbished side and another that is all new and shiny, fully refurbished, and both contain typical details.

The last time I checked, there were only 92 pieces of the beautiful limited edition left, so better hurry up if you’d like to play with these cards (or hang them on your wall)!

Backstage | A Year of Masks, and Moments of Joy

Luckhaus Hybrid Mask by Jenn Maia

It’s been a year since I first started testing mask patterns, having no idea that this would lead to making my own and helping the helpers! It’s been quite a ride since, and I am so thankful for how mask makers make this dark time feel so much brighter. Yet, there are days when everyday life feels so far away… and then, there’s a new pattern challenge, a license enquiry, a kind donation, or someone who thanks me in a way that’s so touching – and all of a sudden, I’m sure we’re gonna be fine. Thank you so much, Jenn, for brightening my day with your beautiful mask! <3

After being asked for years when my information graphics would be out als posters as well, I reworked the identification sheets for leave shapes, animals tracks and bird silhouettes, added three different fonts (styles: school, retro and script) and uploaded them. Large formatted posters and art prints are available via Posterlounge now (soon also on Amazon and eBay!), and smaller formats and postcards are available via Artflakes as well.

I’ve had so much fun with my posters for the Posterlounge earlier this week that I also renewed my shop at Søciety6 right away – besides artprints, you can also buy my girls on greeting cards, coffee mugs, throw pillows, tote bags, sleeves, cases and skins now – and some of them even fitted on duvet covers and shower curtains! 

Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal | Grifflenberg

Perspektivische Schwarzweiß Zeichnung der Gebäude der Uni Wuppertal, BUGH, am Grifflenberg, für die MasterCard der Stadtsparkasse für die Mitarbeiter der Uni

Once again, I’ve been drawing for the Wuppertaler Stadtsparkasse, this time a black-and-white view of the buildings of the University of Wuppertal (BUGH) on Grifflenberg. My illustration will soon be printed in ten different colour schemes on the front of a special mastercard for students and staff of the university.  For this project, I had to work very different from my usual process – not only without outlines, but also without people, details or colours, but precisely after a photograph, with correct perspectives – and it actually was a challenge, but a lot of fun as well!

Cristabelles for Schock Material Brochure

Ausschnitt aus der Illustration von drei Freundinnen im Café, die Cupcakes essen, Kaffee trinken und fröhlich Gossip verbreiten, für eine Materialbroschüre der Firma Schock

Illustrations for a material brochure by Schock, a producer of granite sinks. My briefing was to contrast two different material lines by using the idea and mood behind them. So, this is my design for the younger, more trendy and astonishingly colourful Cristalite series: Three friends take a break from shopping, chat, drink coffee and eat pastel coloured cupackes in a street café.

A foldable little house for the Stadtsparkasse

Faltbares Modell eines Hauses aus Pappe mit einer renovierten und einer unrenovierten Hälfte als Erklärhilfe für die Bausparer der Stadtsparkasse Wuppertal von Iris Luckhaus

I just finished illustrating the outside of a collapsible cardboard house (ca. 20 x 20 cm) for the Wuppertaler Stadsparkasse. This little house will be used to describe renovations and refurbishings of an old house, and why those make sense. It has an old, unrefurbished side and another that is all new and shiny, fully refurbished, and both contain typical details.

Release | “52 Aces Reloaded” by Zeixs

Herzdame (Queen of Hearts) Spielkarte im 52 Aces Reloaded Pokerdeck für Zeixs im Set auf dem Tisch

Here they are, the “52 Aces Reloaded” poker decks by Zeixs – Books for Designers I illustrated the Queen of Hearts for a few months ago – and if you’re lucky, they’re still available! The last time I checked, there were only 92 pieces of the beautiful limited edition left, so better hurry up if you’d like to play with these cards (or hang them on your wall)!
