I was commissioned by the lovely folk at GIPHY to devise, illustrate and animate a set of ten special stickers on the theme of Mental Health and Self Care. These can be used on platforms like Instagram Stories and Snapchat. You can see the set here. They have currently been viewed nearly 820 million times.
I wanted to create a set of characters that are soft and simple but also super expressive - that are immediately recognisable as well as incredibly accessible to as many people as possible. I went for lots of soft lines and pastel colours to reinforce the soothing powers of looking after your mental health, as well as how straight forward it can be.
On a personal note, these characters have been an absolute joy to draw so I wonder if other people will enjoy drawing them too.
