Know your Bits is a collection of illustrated characters inspired by our bodies, raising money for Cancer Research UK.
The project was born from a series of sketches, in an act of defiance against feelings of shame and embarrassment. When the sketches evolved and more body bit characters were added, they took on a new purpose – to be a humorous reminder of physical wellbeing and to help actions towards preventing cancer.
After attracting attention online with a voting campaign, the team have partnered up with other makers in the area to produce the characters in physical form. The team have organised a party in East London, where the most popular characters will be materialised in the form of a giant piñata, soft toys, enamel pins and screen prints.
