There's currently a Fraggle Rock 30th Anniversary t-shirt/poster design competition happening on Talenthouse. I'd hoped to enter, but, alas, diazepam had other ideas.
Anyway, the idea of approaching such beloved characters in my own style had really appealed to me, and it's for this same reason that it's so nice to see the personal twists some of the competing artists have put on the Fraggles.
There are tons of entries, and I'm sure I will have missed some good ones, but these are the ones that appealed to my tastes and caught my eye. Click through on the artists' names to vote if you like 'em!
Definitely one of the more imaginative designs, compositionally, and a nice colour-scheme.
Some nicely-now pixelated Fraggles! Great simple-but-effective concept too. A clear fave that would look fantastic on a t-shirt.
Probably my favourite design. Captures the mystery and dark edge of the show in a beautiful illustration. I would buy this on a t-shirt!
Again, a more imaginative and dynamic take on the subject than some of the other entries, distinctively rendered.
This is the sort of thing I had hoped to see, the Fraggles rendered in a refreshingly personal style. A classy Jim Flora feel to this one.
I like this one because it looks like a cool French comic. Something about the colours and the character attitudes!
And finally, another clear favourite. R. Crumb does Fraggle Rock?? More of this man's Fraggle madness here!
You can see all of the entries here - only a few days to vote. The winning entry gets made into official 30th Anniversary merch!
