As a Guest of Honor for FE 2019, I made a number of the art assets attendees saw around the con! Now that the con has wrapped, I can share them.

I put a lot of thought into this year's shirt design. Since I was limited to only 4 colors, I relied on the dark shirt to create the illusion of lineart and used all 4 inks in the design itself. Bright white frames the scene with symmetrical pillars and graduates lined up along the stairs, evoking a formal academic air. The banners suspended from above read as a school motto or slogan for Furry Fandom itself based on some of our greatest strengths: "Community, Diversity, Creativity, Charity." The graduates are looking up and out into the skyline of Toronto, where the convention is held; the brilliant colors of the buildings and sunrise represent hope for a bright future not only for the graduates in the design but for the convention and its attendees in their relationship with the city.

Also, this might be the first furry con shirt with only bug characters on it, which FE asked me for specifically, so that's pretty cool!
