BBC - mental health

animation

Illustrations commissioned by the BBC, exploring mental health issues faced by children. Using personal testimonies of their experiences and path to recovery, they explore a range of topics including OCD, Depression, Anorexia, Panic, being bullied, and being a bully. I designed the characters based on the real children testimonies, purposely not using photos, to not be mislead by appearance. It was incredibly engaging to depict their personalities and personify their fears through illustration.
