Hello again everyone.

If we may, we’re going to step away from our usual Thursday Art of the Day for something a little different.  Earlier this week a group of our favorite Zootopia fanartists put together a collection in honor of one of our very favorite artists–a person we’ve mention before, the one and only Qalcove.

As the name ‘Qalcove World Tour’ suggests these pics show her OC/Fursona in various locations all over the world — mostly engaged in one of her favorite pastimes, surfing. (We’ve included a couple of stories as well.)

We won’t be posting any commentary with these pieces.  The artist themselves said it much, much better than we ever could. (You can read their comments by clicking on the source links.)

Cue the music, boys.  Everyone else…enjoy.

Last but not least, a personal note.  

Although none of the Images presented  here are from the Zootopia movie, there is very much a connection.  Qalcove is an awesome Zootopia fanartist and simply a great person.  She has many, many friends in Zootopia Fan community; they love her, and she loves them…and with good reason.  She’s always quick to offer praises for a fellow artist’s work, endlessly retweeting any images she particularly admires.

But at the end of the day, Qal just plain loves to draw.  She’s the kind of artist who Tweets, “I don’t know if I can do this,” and then goes out and produces something amazing.  It was through encountering her that I first became aware of something — the amazing level of support people have for one another within the Zootopia fan community.  Not just the artists, but everybody; always there for each other.

And that, in my opinion, is something more precious than even the most exquisite piece of Zootopia-themed artwork, (or any artwork at all.)

Bless you Qalcove…we, at ZNN, wish you success in all your future endeavors.
