Protect Yourself Against the Swine Flu, With Style

The WHO has raised the Swine Flu—which you can follow in this map or through Twitter—to alert level 5, which means a pandemic is imminent. Not funny. Some people, however, are having fun.

In Mexico everyone is wearing masks. People are getting bored of wearing the same thing, so they have started to decorate them in all kinds of styles. As you can see, many of them show their always ironic look at death and fascination with los muertos.



My favorites, however, are the colorful masks designed by Japanese artist Yoriko Yoshida. Visit Yoriko's page for more designs. [Yoriko Yashida via Pink Tentacle and Daily Telegraph]
