Fritz Hug Prints

More art from Swiss animal artist extraordinaire, Fritz Hug. I love his stuff.
His compositions are always great, and each sketch or illustration showcases a pose that is so typical and unique for this particular animal. Look at the skin flap on these elephants that starts at the knee and stretches all the way to the rib cage. Amazing observation.
Most of these drawings are actually high end prints offered on ebay. They are not cheap for a good reason, this guy is amazing!
He always pushes the contrast between thick and thin body parts, but more importantly, his love for all animals comes through in every image.

Here is the link to my first post on Fritz Hug, but if you type his name on my blog search, there is plenty more:



  1. Fritz Hug, a new discovery for me. I checked out your other post about him. All of the art is amazing I'm particularly drawn to his rabbit sketches. I think that it's because their heads/faces are interesting and he captures the structure so well. Plus, I love art that you can feel and see the motion.

    Oh and you're right on eBay his prints are pricey, but like you said understandable.

  2. Hi Mr. Deja!
    I'm a huge fan of yours and I would like to ask you some questions personally! How can I contact you? Thanks so much!

  3. I love how each drawing feels like the animal is about to move. You can really feel the movement. Especially in the cat and horse sketches.

  4. Very nice. Reminds me of the great French artist M. Meheut. Thank You.
