Juan Alfonso, also known as Funimal (born in Bejucal, Havana Province, Cuba), is a furry artist who lives in Florida, USA.


Juan Alfonso was born in Bejucal, Havana Province, Cuba - home to pachangas and the Chinese-made radio interference generators. He was witness to book burnings and the prelude to the Bay of Pigs invasion, and was taken to the US when his parents fled Cuba in 1968.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Juan Alfonso found his first underground comic, Robert Crumb's Fritz the Cat as a kid, and was immediately hooked to the concept of funny animals. After discovering Steve Gallacci's Albedo in a comic store in Tampa, Florida, his contacts with Gallacci and fellow artist Tim Fay revealed a whole world to him with the furry fandom.

Juan Alfonso has been involved in the fandom since the 1980s. A prolific artist, he has been a member of/or contributed to several early furry fanzines, was a member of Rowrbrazzle and Huzzah, as contributed to Furversion, the Furkindred anthologies and many other publications of the era.

He submitted artwork to Rowrbrazzle, then run by Marc Schirmeister, and there he found many talented artists that served as an inspiration for him to contribute to the many fanzines (and eventually one comic book by Conquest Press), publications and furry CD-ROM collections.
