Art for Music’s Sake

Frank Kozik is a world-famous graphic artist who has often been credited with single-handedly reviving the silk-screened rock’n’roll concert poster as an art form. A self-described “military brat”, after his honorable discharge from the air force he dedicated himself to art — completely self-taught as well. He has since become known not only for his posters and graphics but also for several lines of unique toys and action figures based on his designs. And yes, “funny animals” (and disturbing animals!) are often part of his work. Back in the day, he even started his own record label! Take a look at his web site to see more of what he’s been up to over the years and what’s coming next. Be prepared!

Hipster Animals on your Chest

The New York artist known as Dyna Moe has created a series of art prints known as Hipster Animals. That’s animals with names (or designations) like “Free-Form Radio DJ”, “Clipboarding Progressive”, and “Blase’ Street Fair Browsers”. Recently, several of these designs have become available on t-shirts for sale. You can find out more about Hipster Animals and see the new designs at the Hipster Animals site on

Cute, Dangerous Toys…

Rocket World is a creative and artistic collective founded in 2001 by Patrick York Ma. We noticed this on their web site: “One of the featured properties at Rocket World is the I.nsurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo.  Conceived in Patrick’s sketch book on a Xmas day flight to London in 2000; the I.W.G. are a feisty and rebellious underground group of self-aware animals who were given sentience by a group of mysterious alien beings.  The I.W.G. have organized and taken up arms to fight against any humans that have killed, exploited their kind and/or polluted their habitats. As the I.W.G. adapt to their new-found intelligence, they often struggle with the same temptations and failings of their enemies. The I.W.G. are cute yet decidedly deadly, and their narrative can be described as Che meets Animal Farm with a dash of pulp science fiction thrown in for good measure.” Goodness. A whole line of I.W.G. toys, t-shirts, prints, and other cool stuff can be found at

Creatures of Habit

Joe Ledbetter is not a name well-known in Furry Fandom, but his graphic art style, influenced in equal parts by both classic animation and (perhaps) M.C. Escher is highly sought-after among collectors of artistic illustration. And now Last Gasp has collected Joe’s works from 2003 through 2008 in a new hardcover portfolio book, Creatures of Habit. The curious (you should be) can check out more about the book (and Joe) at Joe Ledbetter’s web site.
