This American artist has come up with a non-trivial way to make money and at the same time help children and their parents. She paints orthopedic helmets that babies have to wear to correct the shape of the skull.
Corrective helmets are prescribed for very young children, most often for those who are not even one year old. In their original form, without a striking design, the helmets look somewhat intimidating. Often, parents complain about the inadequate reaction of passers-by: they often avert their eyes and try to walk faster past the strange child. Surprisingly, helmets with funny drawings, reproductions of famous paintings and funny inscriptions give the exact opposite effect: parents receive many compliments and enthusiastic responses about what they think is an unusual headdress, keenly interested in what it is for.
Artist's first helmet Paula Strawn decorated at the request of a friend - her granddaughter was to start wearing it in the near future. "Please paint this ugly thing somehow," she asked. No sooner said than done. When the girl's attending physician saw the painted Hollow helmet, he was delighted. He asked the artist to leave her business cards in his office. Since then, Stron has had no work problems. She opened her own company, in which corrective art helmets are successfully sold under the Lazardo Art brand.
Over the past twelve years, Paula has adorned over a thousand orthopedic helmets for babies. Curiously, there are models for both boys and girls. Each new helmet is a small project, a small piece of art. Every time the artist needs to take into account the preferences of her parents and play on a particular theme. “I can’t call it work,” Paula admits, “I love what I do so much.”

They pay tribute to the dead in a completely different way. Each grave is decorated with a headstone with funny drawings and sarcastic epitaphs that colorfully describe the reason for the death of a person
