What I've tried to do here is instead of posting a huge swag of
links with no information in them, is to give you a bit more of a
idea or review as to what's at the other end. In other words,
quality not quantity (hopefully!)
- What is a
Furry? For the "definitive" answer (as far as it can be agreed
upon), this is a good place to start.
- Frequently Asked Questions about Furry Fandom are answered on
PeterCat's Furry InfoPage: All the FAQs. This includes the
answers to questions as to where you can obtain -
Furry fanzines! A list of available amateur
anthropomorphic-themed fanzines, including the first Australasian
furry fanzine South Fur
- "The World of Vicki Fox"
- A weekly comic strip written by Mike Russell and drawn by Laura
Howell - well worth a look.
- Tigress.com, the European
furry Internet site. Home of many Eurofur homepages, including Lutra whom I met at
Eurofurence 3 and 7.
- Furry Music
Foundation. Check out the Furry Fantasies CD - very good, and a
steal at 20DM! And it looks like there's a new CD out...
- Rabbit Valley Books
- Probably THE best Internet-based furry publication shop around.
On-line ordering, excellent products, credit cards accepted, good
service and order turnaround make this a very good port of call for
your purchase of furry comics and artwork. They were even
able to get my order to me in Japan once without any problems, so
they must be good!
This is a list of some artists whose styles I particularly enjoy,
and in some cases have been influenced by. Check them out!
Michael Pena (aka Sparrow) has a very distinctive style to
his furry artwork, which is unlike anything I've ever seen before
in the furry genre. Well worth a look - I'm sure you won't be
- Antti Remes -
Brilliant artist! Very fine ink shading in black-and-white makes
his work a real treat to the eye. I had the pleasure of meeting
Antti personally at Eurofurence 3 in 1997.
- Another European artist I have discovered of late is Bhavesh
Patel (Bhavpfox) from London, England. A nice cartoony art
style. You can see his art at either his homepage or his VCL
- John R.
Plunkett's Literary Art page is the repository of (among
other things) of the story "Star Dancer", a very good story set in
Bernard Doove's Chakat universe. One of the best amateur writers in
the furry genre I've seen.
- Greg Howell, as well as being the author of "The Human
Memoirs", "Godsend" and "Light on Shattered Water" stories posted
to alt.fan.furry, is also a very good artist. Greg's homepage contains
some excellent examples of the work he's done - well worth checking
- "Fifine" - a
French furry parody and tribute to Herge's "Tintin" comics by
Normazan, done in the same style as the original. Highly
- If you've been around furry fandom for a while you've probably
heard of Simon Barber, one of the most prolific European
furry artists. Hailing from Ilkely in Yorkshire, England, Simon's
artistic style is quite unique, not to mention some of his subject
matter :) He doesn't have a webpage at present, but you can find
his artwork and stories (in particular those based in Toho Academy,
a furry/anime/Lovecraftian horror/pulp SF/Famous Five satirical
universe - yes, it can be that strange) at
his VCL index. In Simon's own words, "Such a sick puppy, the
R.S.P.C.A. raise funds for me..."
- "Scale" -
He's an Italian furry artist with a very soft pencilling and
drawing style that looks really good. Worth seeing!
- Ken Sample (aka Da
Coug'r) - Another really good artist. Specialises in pinup type
illustrations, very good detail and "smashing" characters...
- VCL -
An archive site of many artists, similar to Yerf but with looser
restriction on content (means: there's some adult-oriented stuff
ComicsRunner is an index of furry comic strips and related
projects, including "Kevin and Kell", "Suburban Jungle", "Dela the
Hooda", "Sabrina Online" and "Fifine" among others. An excellent
central navigation point for your morning furry comic fix
- Joe Ekaitis's Anthropomorphic Animal Art - for
those with a liking for baaaad puns and cartoons!
Island - A "shared furry universe" set in a 1930's era of
seaplanes and Pacific Islands, created by Ken Fletcher. Artists and
writers such as Ken himself, Richard Bartrop, Simon Barber, Lauri
Gerholtz combine to create a setting that's a cross between
"TailSpin" and "Indiana Jones".
XianJaguar - A talented female furry artist in the US,
XianJaguar produces some very nice inked and coloured artwork.
Certainly someone to watch :)
- For a different perspective to furry artwork, have a look at
the work of some Japanese furry artists including Ken Singshow and
Kitsune Inokuma at the Fang
archive. Be aware that most of these sites are Japanese
language only, but the art is well worth a look.
