Magazine Coverage

Just wanted to post about something exciting in my life recently (No not THAT!).

A short while ago I was asked to be featured in a magazine article. I did all my due diligence and agreed to an interview and sent them photos and all of that good stuff. Today I received my copy in the mail!

The cover:


An example page:


Another example page:


It includes Qarrezel, Fatkraken, and myself ^^ Half of my excitement comes from that as Fatkraken and I are long-distance friends who chat fairly regularly about fursuits and not and Qarrezel is a very talented contemporary who I've never had anything but good dealings with.

Thus great company for (I may be jumping the gun as I've not actually sat down and read it yet) what looks to be a very good, fair article focused on fursuits as art.

I'm not going to scan and upload the whole article as that seems a bit.. uncool. And possibly illegal. But mostly just uncool.

But here's the magazine website for anyone interested in more information: http://www.ornamentmagazine.com/

EDIT: screencap from their website's current issue synopsis

Very nice! I always thought fursuiting was a great art form and is totally unappreciated outside the fandom. This is marvelous. XD I love the picture of Red XIII on the ATV.

If you check out the magazine's website right now, a fursuiter is tempting you to subscribe ^_^

Well, at least I'm buying this issue just for keeps.
