An editorial Illustration for Local Love.ca, which is owned by United Way of Greater Toronto.

The main focus of the article was summarizing 5 ways kids can change the world. I wanted to note the five key aspects within the illustration: Diversity, Empathy, Social Responsibility, Social Justice and Fundraising.
The article was a summary, which made incorporating all 5 key points tricky. Below you can find 2 other options for direction, but I found the grid layout worked well and offered a much more eye-catching presence than just 1 illustration.

Two other ideas that were not selected included a park setting with all the aspects illustrated in a social setting. Along with a second panel variation.
