I was developing some new character styles for children’s books and I came up with this minimalistic shape based style.  I like how modern and clean it is.  I don’t really know why I ended up making a frog in a suit, but there you have it.  He is a sophisticated frog; the type of frog that you’d probably run into at a gentleman’s club sipping fine...
