It’s always a treat to find a fellow Muppet fanatic in the wild. After finding a particularly interesting DeviantArt page with lots of great Muppet fan art, it turns out that the artist is the real deal: Someone who loves the obscure corners of the Muppet universe and happens to have the talent to back it up on the page.
Quentin Tracy is the artist in question, and a couple years ago he participated in “Muptober”, a month-long exercise in which he drew a Muppet a day. But there aren’t many examples of your Fozzie Bears and Oscar the Grouches and whathaveyous. Instead, we’ve got fan favorites, forgotten characters, and the most random of random Muppets. It’s delightful.
His first piece below is a Twitter-fied homage to the animations of Sesame Street, and immediately following are his Muptober sketches. Don’t recognize them? We included a link to the Muppet Wiki under each one to prove that they’re real! Or, they used to be.
If you dig Quentin’s artwork, be sure to check out his DeviantArt page. Many, many thanks to Quentin for allowing us to share his work!
