Hot Frog’s hottest work 2017-08-08 15:38:00

I was approached to illustrate the poster for the production of a musical by an American children’s theatre company.
It featured the amazing story of the most unlikely friendship between a young hippopotamus and an old tortoise.
Even more remarkable is the fact that this charming story is actually true!
Owen and Mzee met in unique circumstances and their friendship is a moving story that was firstly turned into a photo book and now will be performed as a musical on Broadway by the Vital Theatre Company.

Here’s some of the the reference I was sent.
