Hope you are all doing well, this month we have decided to add something art based to the schedule. So grab your pens and pencils as Neptune will be hosting a mixture of drawing games. Do not worry if you can not draw, it is more about encouraging more furs to start drawing and having fun and we will be having our normal mix of games and the fursuit walk. Feel free to comment if you have any questions. The schedule is as follows:
11:30: Meet at Middlesbrough Bus Station.12:00: Head to Resolution
12:00: Head to Resolution
13:00 – 14:30 Art games (normal board games available for those who wish not to take part)
14:30-15:45: Fursuit walk (optional, usually at least one committee member will remain at the pub).17:00: Meet ends at Resolution.
It is June, and for the month of June, our Artist of the Month is Frith! Furs who attend Middlesfur will know both Frith and her artwork from our meets. Frith’s fursona is a jackalope (“A mythical animal depicted as a hare or rabbit with horns, said to exist in parts of North America.” – Oxford English Dictionary) with an eye for shiny objects. We love Frith’s bold outline style with bright colours, she even made our 3-year anniversary pictures last September.
“Hello! My name is Frith and I’m one of the artists here at Middlesfur. I’ve been drawing traditionally for as long as I can remember but only picked up digital art when I was around 13 after I discovered Neopets and an artist called Kuitsuku who drew fanart of the characters. I was entirely hooked by the big-eyed, crisp-lined, ploofy style which, looking back, should have tipped me off that I was a low-key furry … as it stands, I only truly accepted my furriness in 2015 when I attended Middlesfur for the first time and … here I am! I debuted my very own fursuit at this year’s Confuzzled after a more than a year and a half in the works. My fursona is Frith Silverthings, a magpie-jackalope with a penchant for shiny objects. I made his head and paws with lots of help from the community, especially the residents of Middlesfur and Kloofsuits’ tutorials on YouTube. I’m incredibly thankful to everyone who helped me through the process. In the future I plan to create a full plantigrade suit for him and I have no doubt I will continue to receive help and support from this incredible fandom. Thank you” – Frith
We at Middlesfur are so happy to have such a great artist who comes to the meets and produces cool art for us XD
