Kjartan Arnórsson, better known in the furry fandom as Karno, is a furry artist and comic writer.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Karno has been involved in the fandom since the late 1980s, and is best known for his mystical but erotic tales of a magic-slinging mustelid, The Mink, which were serialized in Genus.

He later put out a comic called Big Funnies printed by Radio Comix and the Karno's Klassics comics series. He's been heavily involved in various fanzines over the years, including Rowrbrazzle, Huzzah, and Barr Wars., and his art can also be found in MU Press's WILD! anthology.

As well as the mystic Mink, his better-known creations include the gun-wielding vigilante Savage Squirrel, the rat freedom fighter Herman Orca (who appears in the Open Season series), and Two-Ton Tina, a vivacious and curvaceous elephant lady.

As of 2024, his ongoing comics include the overlapping adventures of Savage Squirrel, The Mink, and Happy Jack (an Iron Man-type character wearing a powered suit); the sex comedy Here There Be Dragons; as well as the superheroic Komos & Goldie (a collaboration with Joe Strike).


Karno is easily recognized at conventions by his stature (Karno is 6 foot, 9 inches [2.06 meters] tall), which is why he draws himself as a giraffe.
