The canvas was created by Australian illustrator Michael Mucci, and was painted by children from Adelaide's Scotch College.

Artist Michael Mucci had created a large canvas for the launch. Children from a school in Mr. Downer's electorate painted the canvas with the new global campaign logo. The canvas will be auctioned at another UNICEF event in November.
