Caricaturist Spotlight: Ania Albi’s 20th Century Fox

A caricature of Tim Curry, as Dr. Frank N Furter created by Aina Albi.


Aina Albi is an illustrator and character designer working out of Barcelona, Spain. Her style makes liberal use of strong shapes and interesting texture. In her caricature of Dr. Frank N. Furter, as portrayed by Tim Curry, she uses line and color but mainly for pop or emphasis. Most of the heavy lifting is done by the large shapes. Her work is cartoonishly flat similar to early TV cartoons, like Rocky and Bullwinkle. She may be influenced by 90’s character designers such as Butch Hartman who created Nickelodeon’s Fairly Odd Parents and Danny Phantom or Steven Silver who did character work for Disney’s Kim Possible. She might draw a bit of influence from the caricature great Al Hirschfeld. Aina’s work is fun and lively and she has plenty more to see.
