Forest of Hope
Nine animals drawn for the Forest of Hope surprise chocolate eggs. I must admit I’ve never been so excited about eating my own work. Each animal was drawn and illustrated to integrate a bigger panorama picture where we can see all animals in one environment, and some had a second illustrated pose like a vignette. Everything was provided in a way that the different background elements can be used and recombined to make new imagery for the website and social media.
Forest of Hope surprise eggs are made with chocolate sourced directly from the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone, from farmers that grow the cocoa in harmony with the rainforest. Each egg contains a surprise animal made of chocolate, and the packaging and supporting materials prompt the kid to discover and read more about the endangered species from this area.
Here are a few process pictures, from colour and style explorations, to sketches:
