What’s it all about?
In 2009 The School Food Trust ran a campaign in England and Wales to raise money for WFP’s school meals. Schools were encouraged to register. Student could then create an avatar to sit at the virtual table, and pledge meals.
Creating the avatars
In the process of drawing twenty eight cheeky characters I made:
- Two bodies (boy and girl)
- Ten skintones
- Fourteen hair colours
- Twenty four hairdos
- Twenty four pairs of eyes
- Twenty five expressive mouths
- Three pairs of glasses
- A headscarf, kippa and pakta
The avatar editor lets students pick any of of these features in combination. They all fit nicely together as the head is a fixed shape and size.
In addition to the fun collection of characters I drew a lunch tray for everyone to use in the virtual dining hall.
Two of the crew also ended up in their own poster.
