Bio
Denis Thomopoulos is the cartoonist and founder of Hippo Works, an eco animation studio in Venice, CA.

Hippo Works got its start when Denis drew a best-selling t-shirt with Simon the Hippo at Georgetown University. He later syndicated Simon and other jungle characters in "It's A Jungle Out There!" -- a comic strip and weekly cartoonlet -- to AOL KIds, National Geographic Kids, Paramount, Clear Channel, Care2.com, among others. Denis's jungle characters also appear on organic clothing at Whole Foods in Southern California.

Most recently, Hippo Works launched a half-hour cartoon musical called "The Power of Poop (and other ways to save the world!)". Denis also painted a large egg for Faberge's Big Egg Hunt, an April '14 event in New York that benefitted The Elephant Family charity which protects Asian elephants' migratory corridors.
