Addition to the Fan Art Gallery by Gareth Axford

Here's another Insanely Twisted email I got from one of the gang:

Hello, My name is Gareth Axford, and I'm a friend and colleague of Kevin Frostick. I'm also another of the individuals responsible for Whilst checking our counter stats today, I noticed that we've had a bunch of hits from your site, and I'd like to thank you for featuring us along with Kev's messed up creations.

As a sort of twisted thank you, I thought I'd send you my two leporine creations [Click here to see the other one]! Hope you like 'em!

Addition to the Fan Art Gallery by Kevin Frostick

The Insanely Twisted Rabbits keep on coming! Well, just the other day I received the following email:

Dear Mr Gagné,

My name is Kevin Frostick and I am a freelance animator working in London.

I have been a huge fan of your work ever since a friend of mine directed me to your website. Frenzied Fauna and Insanely Twisted Rabbits instantly became favourites in my book collection, and The Iron Giant has long been my favourite animated film of all time.

I am coming to the end of my current project and found myself with a bit of spare time in the studio. So I decided to do what I've been promising myself for a few months, and put together a few twisted rabbits of my own and send them to you.

Strangely addictive aren't they? I found it impossible to stop at one or two. So please find attached four twisted rabbits for you. I hope you like them - or at the very least I hope they cause a slight sneer.

Yours sincerely,

Kevin Frostick (under the pseudonym of Ruddiger Sturgeon)

Cosmic Art

I’ve always been a huge fan of Jack Kirby’s cosmic art. As a kid, I used to marvel at his strange universes. His Fantastic Four comics, featuring concepts and characters such as the Negative Zone, the Kree, Galactus and the Silver Surfer, were big favorites.

These "cosmic" themes must have left a very strong impression on me because they keep popping back into my work.

Here are a few "Kirbyesque" spacescapes from various projects I've done in recent years. The image on the left is from Zed #1, the one on the upper right is from The Towers of Numar and the one on the right is from the Batman Project I did last year.

A Sketch for a Friend

A few years ago, while working at Warner Brothers Feature Animation, I ran into Lance Falk. Lance and I worked on a Youngblood promo a few years earlier and it was nice to see him again.

Lance showed me a sketchbook he had been putting together. It contained drawings by some of the most renowned artists in the comic and animation industry. While I was flipping through it, he asked me if I'd be willing to contribute a sketch. I agreed and drew this little picture of Rex.

A few days ago, I received an email from Lance with an attachment containing the sketch I drew for him three years ago!

Well, I thought the drawing was rather cute so I decided to post it here. You can click here for a larger view.
