Hey! My name is Luke, and I'm going to tell you a few things about myself. If you found your way here, you're either just curious about the dog behind the lens, or are confirming that the person you know happens to be a furry. Yep, you're right, I am!
Attached below here is a selection of art that I have of my "fursona", Luke, along with some art I have with my partner Jynx. I also have some photos of my fursuits named Mac and Loki!
So, what exactly is a furry / what is the furry fandom?
According to a few sources online, the furry fandom is a subculture interested in anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human intelligence and facial expressions, speaking, walking on two legs, and wearing clothes. The term "furry fandom" is also used to refer to the community of people who gather on the Internet and at furry conventions.
Okay, well that’s weird. Why would someone want to be one of those?
For some of us, being a furry is just an interest in an art style. For others, furry can be a full time career, whether it be through art, suit making, or just about anything else. For me, the chance of impacting someone’s day in a positive way by dressing up as a six foot tall white-and-blue dog gives me a lot of joy. What can I say, I like to see people smile, even if they think I’m crazy.
