h2g2: Sadako and the Peace Crane

h2g2 is a community website based on the 'guide' in the cult book 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galazy' by Douglas Adams, who was one of the founding members and directors of the company (which incidentally began its days as The Digital Village).

As one of h2g2's resident artists, I was responsible for establishing a visual illustrative style together with the other artists, and illustrating many of the articles published on the website. I must have done hundreds!

Some of them were mini animations, such as this one for an article on a little Japanese girl called Sadako who got leukaemia from the atom bomb at Hiroshima in the Second World War.

There is a beautiful story about how Sadako set about making a thousand paper cranes from her hospital bed, for there was a legend that should she complete the task she would be granted a wish. Hers, of course, was to be well again...
