YNZ Foundation – Illustrations

The Young New Zealanders Foundation is a charity that helps at-risk kids, from preschoolers to teenagers. I was tasked with illustrating and designing a book series as part of a programme teaching very young children about their bodies, consent, and abuse. It’s a very difficult subject, so the challenge was to strike a balance between a charming story and relatable, scary situations for kids. I ended up creating a side character in each story (a toy or pet) that helps express what the child is feeling, but can’t say out loud.
