In opdracht van Unilever Research Lab. ontwierp ik bovenstaande karakters.
Ook tekende ik over deze "Schmurri Kids" twee korte stripverhalen.

Zo luidden de wensen van mijn opdrachtgevers:
"The Schmürri kids are peers and models for the children in the study.
They are boys and girls, ca. 10 years old and form a close team of friends.
Each one of the Schmürri kids has different characteristics/ skills and they
all eat Smurrie every day.

Through the good example of the Schmürri kids the children in the study
are encouraged to eat Schmürri every day. It will be implied that by
regularly eating Schmurri regularly they will grow & develop and can help
the Schmurri kids to impede the evil actions of Schrumpf, aimed at sabotaging
the Schmurri supply and keeping children small.

The Schmürri story:
Schmürri is present in the margarine or the mini drink the children are
supplied with during the study. Schmürri is important for growth & development.
But the BFB (bigfatbosses) doesn’t want children to grow up and develop their
own ideas, because it interferes with their plans. They have hired Schrumpf,
a small and mean character, to help them with their plans to prevent children
from eating Schmurri. [...] The Schmurri kids have to find ways to stop
Schrumpf and help the children of the world to grow up."

Hieronder zie je de definitieve schetsen van twee van de karakters:
Corvinus en Soraya.

Corvinus is een normale, verstandige jongen. Soraya is een meisje van Turkse
komaf. Zij is een normaal, braaf meisje-meisje met jurkje, oorbelletjes en
kettinkjes (een prinsesje).
