Game Of Awesome

A few years ago I illustrated a game for NZ schools called Game Of Awesome. The commission involved creating separate illustrations for 200 cards, plus wraparounds for 5 boxes and an instruction booklet. As it was designed to inspire kids in their creative writing, the best thing about the job was that the subject range was broad and perfectly ridiculous in every way. Chrometoaster, the awesome company who came up with the game and designed it for the Ministry Of Ed, wanted doodles on every surface. So there's always more for kids to find.

It picked up a Best Award for Public Good last year, along with the coveted Purple Pin at the New Zealand Best Awards. Tonight it picked up a bunch of awards at the Australian Good Design Awards, including the 2017 design of the year for all categories. The Chrome Toaster press release has more info.
Here's some hastily taken shots of the packaging. You can click 'em to embiggenate...
