"Spontoon Island" is a co-op art & story archive set in the 1930s on an alternate version of our world. The population is anthropomorphic-animal toons to funny-animal furry, depending on the contributor's style. The location is a small independent nation of Pacific Ocean islands. T
Jerry Collins, an early anthropomorphic-sf & furry cartoonist and artist is available for commissioned art. In the 1970s he became well-known for illustrations & comic strips featuring settings that shared his iconic species of Haku-hasin (nicknamed: "Bambiods"), Ganarfs (chibi-style little critters), & Teijenese (A.K.A. "Cat-bears").
Jerry has an account on Deviant Art as "GeorgieGanarf" - Most of the current gallery work is graphics-software sketches, but some examples of his traditional media work since the 1980s is in the many gallery folders at the account. Recent journals give his commission details, and a contact address.
