Miguel Estrugo, also known as Artie Coon, previously Artie Roo (born October 15, 1972), is an European spanish graphic designer and amateur webcomic creator living in Santiago de Chile, Chile.


Miguel Estrugo has been drawing webcomics on and off since 1996. His creations include Crock O'Dyle, Alice Otter, Road to Cuckooland and Ferret Wars. He loves drawing funny animals, and his favorite genre is humor, ranging from slice-of-life to slapstick.

His drawing style is strongly influenced by Spanish comic artists from the 60s and 70s, like José Sanchís, Manuel Vázquez and Francisco Ibáñez, and early animators like the Fleischer brothers and Messmer/Sullivan.


  • Artie Roo - A short, cartoony kangaroo character created in 1986. He was his creator's personal character and avatar on furry sites and forums from 1995 to 2000, when he was replaced by Artie Coon. He was one of the main characters in Three Apples, a comic book published in South Fur Lands between 1997 and 1998, and is now a secondary character in Alice Otter.
He's been featured in some pictures by his author, occasionally on satirical images related with furry fandom's darker aspects, but most of the drawings where he appears are submissions to the Artist's Ambush, that he occasionally visits on FurryMUCK.


Miguel Estrugo was born the exact same day as US comic artist Cayetano "Cat" Garza.
