    Survey - The Structure of the Fandom

    I'm doing a survey to study how the fandom is structured and organized. I plan on using this data to help with a theory I am working on. It will also be used to understand the history being created with each passing day in the fandom. I've been interested in furry history for years, making...

    Historical Figures as Anthro's

    I'm planning to make a series of drawings about historical figures as anthro's. The first one is about El Cid as an Andalusian horse. So what would certain famous past and present people look like if they were anthropomorphized? Theodore Roosevelt would be a teddy bear, obviously.

    Who were the earliest performing bands/musicians in the Fandom?

    Lately, I've been searching for live recordings and/or music by a furry musician named CZG; I first saw him perform at a convention back in October 1994, and I even bought a vinyl record of his music. Unfortunately, I've since lost that record & it seems that his entire discography has fallen...

    Which Comes First

    Hello all, I have a question. Did you create your fursona's backstory and post it first or did you have artwork commissioned (or done yourself) before you let others know their backstory? I'm asking because I already have a sufficiently detailed backstory for my fursona, but I have no artwork...
