The sloth symbolises that friend who is known to be a bit odd and lazy and Julia Gutman has re-imagined a sloth as someone in their mid 20s, going about their every day life. The sloth even does a selfie in the mirror and uploads a Tinder profile. Check out the project for the full collection.
Kate Simspon’s Philosopher Badger reminds us of Peter Rabbit. He appears to be a wise old book worm and you can just imagine him as a character in a children’s book.
