Jumping into 2019!

New year, new Appetite! We haven’t posted the entire 2018 but that’s not because we were sleeping. On the contrary – we’ve been busy making the storyboard, beautifully drawn by renowned animator Velislava Gospodinova . We’re looking forward to sharing some of the drawings with you once the process is complete!

Below: the new and redesigned Rabbit!
