O Come All Ye Furries,
It's that time of year to wrap up warm!

Have a tot of your favourite mulled tipple, and raise your glass to our Guest of Honour: We have great pleasure in inviting the esteemed Kévin Gemin, alias Kéké Flipnote - Kéké for short - to join us at NordicFuzzCon 2019!

From his unique animation style, this up-and-coming animator has grown a wide following: Over 200,000 followers on his Twitter account and many others on Tumblr and YouTube. Whilst it is plain to see that his inspiration comes from his self-proclaimed love of the old 1930s cartoons, he has left his own mark on the genre. His animations are a fantastic blend of old-school wackiness with a modern vitality. He has a cheeky sense of humour which is sure to delight; such as his animation of foxes, birds and other animals dancing to Beyoncé's Single Ladies – in his version called Put A Wing On It – or his funny animation of the classic French CanCan.

He sends us all the following greeting:

“Hello! My name is Kévin and I am an animator. I studied illustration at the Émile Cohl school and obtained my draftsman's diploma practitioner. I love Animals. Especially birds, they are an enormous source of inspiration for me and I illustrate them quite often, practically everyday! I also draw to share the enjoyment and the happiness with as many people as I can. This is what is important and means a lot for me. I also happen to illustrate anthropomorphic characters because I always found them magical, like in cartoons and little fairy tales, there is always something that amazes me!”

We are thrilled to have him with us and anticipate his contributions with relish. Be sure to stay tuned for more news and we hope that both he - and you - will make this a truly carousing Howliday.

With a gift like Kéké, we are sure yule enjoy winter with us!
