    This has nothing to do with furries.

    It more likely has something to do with animal rights, specifically those who are anti-fur.

    Even if that was for the lulz, its still fail, because its not even lulzey.

    Hey all. I understand this was posted some time ago, but I just ran into it. And since it happens to be my painting I’m feel the need to leave a description here for those who weren’t able to view it in it’s proper context. This was a college homework assignment for Biology class. I was asked to make an environmental statement within my field of study. I majored in illustration and chose ‘Anti-fur’ as my statement. As a kid, I thought the word ‘Faux’ was pronounced ‘Fox’ which is why I chose a fox as my subject and ‘Faux… Read more »
