Anthro Artists In The Real World!

  Finding Art In The Real World

Wednesday January 16th, 2013
Written by: KovoWolf


While on my Holiday vacation in Grants Pass Oregon to visit my parents and grandmother I ventured into a local comic shop. It was a really nice comic shop and had quiet a selection. I was browsing one of the isles when I came across not one but two comics side by side from Anthro artists here on DA!  It's pretty amazing and a humbling experience when you stumble across artists work from DeviantART out in the real world!  Especially artists you've been following for years! Congrats you two on your accomplishments and sharing your talent and imagination with the rest of us!
 The comics I came across are "Lackadaisy" by tracyjb and "Nordguard - Book One  - Across Thin Ice" by screwbald and Tess Garman !

Here is the shot I took ( crappy I know, I only had my phone on me! )



Are You An Anthro Artist With Work Published?

I would love to hear about it and feature you! Please post a link to your website and/or publication (ie: book, comic etc) in the comments below!

I got published, but it was for my fantasy dragon work, not anthro. Technically, one of the dragons published was anthro, but the other one was not. Here is the publication:


There's lots of stuff out there about it, but I'm not sure what you are looking for.....

Oh nice! I didn't know this :) I will keep this for future reference in regards to features and as well exposure to people who've been published in the real world! Anthro or not!

I think I've seen Lackadaisy in a local comic shop out here in the Bay Area (California). There was a "free comic book" day at a local shop. They handed out "previews" of some comics. I got a dark Crystal one with something else on it. It was something about a mouse, a hawk, a snake and a crab, I do believe.

Anyway, awesome to see different things make it to stores! :) Makes me want to really get started on my comic!

Basically there is a lot of anthro if you look at it closely - Disney is one big example. Then a lot of books for children and and and...

I mean with all this stuff happening on TV and in the cinemas and child literature - who'd be surprised that Anthro&Furry is such a popular subculture?

There are quite a lot of non-supporters who are all "giving animals human traits is unnatural and kinky" But they love Disney and other child entertainment with animals walking on two legs and such stuff...

Good to know that there are arists who also try to make Anthro stories more popular among grown ups ^^
