Does anybody know who Furioso is?


This art among other pieces was on Superheroine Central in the fan art section a few years ago.His listed name is Furioso, and I can't find a thing on the web about him or who he might be. I'd love to talk to him because this is just the most frantic sex scene ever and I like the energy spilling out of it. It's hot when most comic sex is really just a boring panelor two that's more clinical than anything else. This guy makes it all come to life.

If you know who this Mystery Man is, let me know!

  2. The first commenter is right, the name of the artist is Kesnnin. Last I've seen of him, he was on the wwoec forums. That said, I haven't seen anything new from him in a while.

    I completely agree with you about his work, it's so full of energy and is utterly sexy in every way.

  3. I totally want to rip this guy's stuff off...I love how he crams so much time into even one panel with multiple short word balloons. I feel like that's a completely successful way to portray sex in comics. And there's so many visual ideas here. He really imagines things thoroughly.

  4. I'd love to do the same thing with word balloons and sound effects. Although I'd have to be careful not to overdo it.

    Oops, looks like I misspelled his name in my last comment. It definitely was Ksennin.

  5. I googled the name ksenning, and came up with a lot of his stuff. Most of the content isn't my kind of material, but he is a page layout genius.

  6. I guess I've learned to look past things and at the parts I like. I think the guy's a pro. Maybe a designer.

  8. Hey, thanks. I'm quite flattered. I am not a pro or a graphic designer. My lack of training must show! But I've always wondered why most superhero comix did not exploit more the narrative toolbox available.

    Furioso was the nick used at the SHC site when I sent them stuff looking for paid work, but I didn't measure up, so they put it up as "guest" work. The name is an inside double pun on the poem by Ludovico Ariosto and a famous cartoon character,

    I then went by Ksennin, a shortening of Kame Sennin, or Turtle Hermit, the Dragonball character who was a dirty old man. For some obscure reason it seemed fitting.

    I did tons of artwork and comix since the early 90s and wrote some lengthy/complex plot-based fics and essays on the genre of superheroine porn and its axiological connotations, but I took all I could off the web when I saw it was being reposted in very fragmented and de-contextualised ways which emphasied the embarrassing misogynistic aspects I had instead tried (badly) to de-construct. Tellingly, only the most extremist fetish material is still being reposted.

  9. First of all, the notion that you are not a designer or pro in the field, yet can do work of this quality is flabbergasting. Your story telling is extremely well thought out and is totally effective. Sex is most often depicted in comics in a way that just sits on the page and does nothing for the reader at all. You avoid this problem entirely with your multitude of word balloons and panel inserts that evokes a passage of emotions and action over a length of time that effectively transcends the medium. That to me is what's so cool about your work.

    It sounds like a you have generated such a volume of work that you have taught yourself a tremendous amount by racking up a ton of experience. You work in a simple style that makes doing a lot of work more practical. the simplicity also strips things down to the economical essence which is a much more effective way to tell stories and is not something you see much of in comics at all these days. Alex Toth, as an example, was a master of this kind of distillation. You've succeeded at this as well.

    Me, I wouldn't worry about what my audience does with my work. To me this would seem too self conscious since I feel that doing the work is the important thing. You may differ and that's fine. That's just where I come from. The vast sweep of humans have a large variety of sexual interests that can become very individualized. I don't try to second guess this. What may seem to be mysogynistic may not be anything operational in the person viewing the work beyond the realm of sexual fantasy. I feel a person's particular sexual interests are more just an artifact of the process of growing up. Who knows where a particular kink or fetish comes from? So I don't spend a lot of time worrying about how this stuff gets used by others since everyone has such a particular set of interests and likes and interpretations. That and the porn audience is a silent audience, by and large. You can't know what's going on out there, there's no way.

    I guess I'm urging you to put the stuff the heck back up!!!! There are us fans out here that will grok where you're going with this too, y'know?
