I’m an Australian furry who lives in the state of New South Wales in the town of Katoomba. I’m 31 years old and have lived in Katoomba most of my life. Katoomba is a small tourist town in the Blue Mountains located west of Sydney.
To describe my personality I would say I’m a shy, introverted person. I'm really chill and quiet most of the time. It takes a while for me to open up to new people. I'm single and not currently looking for a partner.
I enjoy eating out, chilling at a cafe on the internet and seeing the sights. I love to eat Asian, Italian and Indian cuisine. I always like to drink coffee. I'm a non-smoker but I do enjoy a drink occasionally. When I do drink I enjoy cocktails such as Espresso Martini's, Beer and Red Wine.
As far as spirituality goes I am an atheist. My political beliefs fall to the left of centre on the political compass. I have worked for Dan Murphy's as a customer assistant. I am currently a carer for my schizophrenic, diabetic father Graeme.
The furry fandom is such a positive influence on my life. I attended my first furry convention Furry Down Under in 2016. I enjoy travelling around Australia going to different furry events. I’ve met great people and I’m meeting more positive people with each event I attend. I’ve been to ConFurgence, FurDU and the new convention NeonFur in 2017.
Why Follow Me?
If you like photos of fursuits you're in the right place. I love to photograph fursuiters at the meets and conventions I attend. I have a good mix of different photos and my collection is expanding all the time. If you find yourself in one of my photos you are free to repost as long as you give me credit as the photographer.
I have some artwork that I've commissioned from many different artists. Most of their work features Silver Sheep but I am getting more pieces featuring Braxton.
I occasionally write short stories. These tend to be furry homosexual-themed erotica and they are pretty out there too. It’s just a bit of self-expression for fun. An expression of my sexuality. I've written some transformation short stories as well.
Send me a tip to help keep a sheep caffeinated.
Buy me a coffee.
About Silver Sheep
Silver Sheep is based on the sheep in the Wicked! story series by Paul Jennings and Morris Gleitzman. I read Wicked as a teen and the cover art for the third book in the series I thought was very cool. The story of the steel sheep was something that fascinated me.
Silver Sheep is an anthro Suffolk sheep. He has the ability to turn his fleece into steel wool like that of a steel wool scourer. Silver Sheep lives and works in a Communist dictatorship with other anthro Sheep. He works as a Zoid pilot. Zoids are large robot animals from the anime of the same name.
Sheep have a collective nature so I thought of what a society of anthropomorphic sheep would be like. It would be a communist nation or something along the lines of the Japanese philosophy of valuing the group over the individual. A communist dictatorship setting offers great artistic ideas and also fits in with a militaristic pilot of animal robots so I went with that.

NeonFur was a great experience this year. I came into it with the right attitude. I was there to have fun and enjoy myself. NeonFur is different from FurDU it has its own feel. The weather was bad but that's something you can't blame on the organisers.
For NeonFur you can't go to it expecting FurDU 2.0 the convention has a more relaxed atmosphere and vibe. Some people are complaining about the lack of panels and structure. It feels like that's a very deliberate decision made by the convention staff.
I can understand the criticism and I wouldn't recommend NeonFur to new members of the fandom and people who don't have a group of friends who they can hang out with. That said, I don't mind the structure but it could be an idea to run a fursuit panel or just an icebreaker panel.
I can understand why they made the decision that they did. I found that I don't go to many panels at a convention as much as I did when I first started going to conventions. The convention is geared towards people who have a group of friends in the fandom and are comfortable organising a party.
What I think they did right was the three-day dealer's den, they had a headless lounge so fursuiters could cool off (yes, some conventions don't have one.) and the props and fursuit toys. Another thing that was spot on was the dance parties. They had good music, UV lights, smoke machines and bubbles.
Boxer Fox offered photo shoots that you didn't have to wait hours for. The NeonFur vibe was fantastic the team was friendly and respectful to attendees. NeonFur is about making new friends and meeting people. For that part, I got to know a few people better than I did before and met some new friends. You get out of NeonFur what you put in.
I also liked that the organisers respected the local fur community by having local artists contribute to their sponsor art and not just ship in overseas popular furs as a gimmick. Aussie conventions should do their own thing and not just copy those Yanks. Rippa and Esky are great convention mascots and I reckon they have a thing going on behind closed doors.
NeonFur has massive potential especially when ConFurgence is going through upheaval and Fursuite con (HCFC) has no dances, headless lounge and a one day dealer's den the only other convention options available are FurDU and the Western Australia ones.
