The Hippopotamus by Tabascofanatikerin The Hippopotamus by Tabascofanatikerin
This is my first fanart about the novel "The Hippopotamus" by Stephen Fry.

I have made several fanarts about another novel and about Fry himself. This time it's the novel I finished completely last.

It's a fictional story about an older journalist of London who has to do a puzzling mission by his fatally ill goddaughter. He has to live for a while with her rich members of the family and document every detail about them for her secretly.

Don't worry, this motif doesn't spoil much because it's a scene from the beginning of the book. You can see the main character (btw: his name is Ted Wallace) sitting in a bar in London, looking in the mirror - a scene described by himself in the book. And you see the goddaughter of him whom he hasn't recognized yet.

Everything in this pic is designed by myself, of course the characters were described in one way or another by the author (that the girl is blond etc.).

Drawn with crayons (and with some tiny Photoshop edits like the text).

Wow! Thank you :)
I guess you won't regret reading the book. Stephen Fry writes good stories :)
If you want you can tell me later what you think of it.

Can do! It will be about a month 'til I get to it, but I'll be sure to note you when I'm done.
