Pan African Conservation Education Programme (PACE)
Siren Conservation Education, UK & Africa, 2006.
These cartoons for Siren's PACE programme implemented across several African nations became part of a collaborative package including a children's book with artwork by Tanzanian artist Godfrey Semwaiko, as well as a series of films featuring sustainable development projects in Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa and Zambia.
Note the sparse use of colour. This experiment enabled me to reduce my effort to accommodate a limited budget, and also achieve an interesting visual effect that I was later to use again in other projects.
Siren also asked me to create a simple comic strip illustrating a case study of solid waste management in Sri Lanka. I'm not sure why it was part of the PACE programme, but many similar initiatives are applied in Africa. Click to see the images.
"Everyone was delighted with the cartoons!"
