Artists Around the World Create Dope PSAs for the “Erase COVID” Campaign

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news
You can find this piece by Lil Tuffy right here.

Legendary Bay Area poster artist Lil Tuffy reached out to me the other day about this awesome campaign that’s using art to raise awareness, and money, to support folks during COVID.

Fifty-two artists from seven countries are creating work for the Erase COVID campaign, and the profits of each piece sold are split between the artist, the printer, and the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which supports musicians and music industry people who’ve been impacted by the pandemic. So it’s a win-win-win for everyone!

In a recent Huffington Post article, Michael Buchmiller, concert poster illustrator and founder of Eraser COVID, called it “PSA Art that I’d like to own.”

There are some seriously dope designs in this collection and the art comes on posters, magnets, postcards and greeting cards. I’ll post some of my favorites below and in the meantime you can go buy some right here.
