I was just pointed to Weasyl by a friend a few hours ago.
I am an artist, mostly self taught. I've have actively been a part of Furry Fandom since 1987. Attended all the ConFURence conventions starting with number 0 and was on staff from #4 through the end of it's run.
I'm not a fur suiter but am in the process of building my first fursuit head, just to see if I can.
Both science fiction and anime fandom lead me to furry. Guess I'm really just a fan of world building as my favorite part of the fandom is seeing others create their own characters and stories.
