The Art of Roosh
Between Anthropomorphism and Pop-Culture
Roosh, also known as Koteri Ink, is a Canadian artist I discovered through his comic book Kings of Nowhere. This work represents absolutely the whole range of this artist’s passions, and that’s what hooked me right away: anthropomorphism, car chases, crime lords? These are also themes that can be found in his more personal illustrations.
With a unique style, Roosh manages to revisit different icons of Pop-Culture by giving them a new look, and one could easily imagine them in Kings of Nowhere or Blacksad. The artist thus gives each of his characters a more realistic and adult look. For my part, I have a slight penchant for his revisits of Digimon, which looks a lot more like monsters and creatures a little scarier than usual.
