Things to make you laugh during COVID-19 – art edition

Welcome to this edition of COVID-19 takes on fine art! The photo above – and the 2 photos below – are part of a series called Quarantine Hats, by travel writer Gayle Keck (though she does other writing too) and HIP Investor CEO R. Paul Herman. While quarantined in their San Francisco home, they’ve been posting a series of character shots of Paul in various international costumes. And they’ve made me so happy.

I know Gayle from the travel writing world, and Paul from college – we both worked at the Daily Pennsylvanian. It’s a small world!
