Each one of us has something we fear of. It could be one of those fantasies about monsters in the dark, or something simple as a fear of heights. Seeing these comics, you will know that you’re not the only one.
Fran Krause is a comic writer, illustrator and animator. Fran uses his humor and artistry to emphasize these fears of people. Krause teaches animation at the California Institute of Arts as well. His comics are a great mix of ridiculousness, sarcasm, and twisted endings.
Fran started his “Deep Dark Fears” project based on the real experiences that people share with him on the internet. Our fears and traumas come from different experiences we have in life, and through these comics the artist puts them into a whole new spotlight.
When we think of our childhood, a big part of it was influenced by our love for cartoons. For instance, Pixar movies impress us even as adults. We all were waiting with impatience for Toy Story 4 to hit the theatres. Imagine all other adorable movies that remain a sweet part of our life. Ratatouille, Inside Out, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Coco, and so many other movies bring us back to the sweet moments of the past anytime we sit in front of the TV.
However, besides its movies, this animating studio is known for something else as well. This one interesting detail that we didn’t notice as kids. It’s the tiny details that are hidden in the story.
