& Publication

The Forest Life is a children's book written by Kenyan author and Spark* Changemaker Carol Kimari. The Forest Life follows 13 year-old boy Juma, as he deals with growing up in a forest with his single mother. 

Carol requested four concepts of unique, bright and symbolic illustrations appropriate for young Kenyan boys and girls. Working with a client in another time zone, and with considerable language barriers, made clear, concise communication imperative for a successful project and resolution.
