We're looking for 20 social media "stickers" (similar to those built into the Facebook Messenger app), based on the theme of Sloths - 17 still images and three animated GIFs. You can use one sloth character in multiple situations or each one can be different.

For the initial entries, you don't need to design all 20 stickers. Just a few examples will do to start. Then you can do the rest if you win.
* The stickers should be simple and colorful, probably cartoons, and should look good at 200x200 pixels.
* Transparent backgrounds are best.
* The differences between the various stickers should be clear even at a small size - consider using different color schemes for the characters, backgrounds, or props, for example.
For the animated ones, you can create a GIF or create frames and we can stitch them together. 6-10 frames is enough. Follow the restrictions of the GIF format (max 255 colors, no partial transparency).
The stickers are meant to be shared in typical social messaging situations, much as one would use an emoji. As such, they should express specific feelings or situations - cuteness and humor is important! Some examples are below, and feel free to use your creativity.
Some of the examples are "adult" themed, but they should be done in a clean way, if possible. For example, the "drunk sloth" can be holding a bottle with a skull-and-crossbones on it, like in the old cartoons.
- Love (1 or 2 sloths)
- Eating (e.g., with pizza, with fork & knife, etc)

Adult themed stickers:
- "High" (no explicit depiction of drugs, but maybe a cloud of smoke and blood-shot eyes)
