I am not nor will ever be a furry artist. For starters, "artist" implies more imagination than I think I usually show. That's getting away from the point. What I want to be is an artist; someone who takes a lot of joy out of drawing a range of things, and animal people just happen to fall into that range. Point of fact one of the big reasons I got interested in furry fandom is that it's where fantasy and wildlife art overlap. I guess the volume of guns, motorcycles, superheros and dorky D&D stuff makes me a Dork Artist or something, but you get the idea.
"Dork Artist". Awesome. ♥
