The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

We commissioned Gianni de Conno, through the Marlena Agency, to create a hypnotic illustration of the characters appearing out of the jungle.

When Father Wolf and Mother Wolf find a man-cub in the jungle, they anger the greedy tiger Shere Khan by refusing to surrender it to his jaws, and rear the child as their own. But when little Mowgli grows up, the pack can no longer defend him. He must learn the secret of fire, and with the help of his friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear, he faces his nemesis at last.
