14:30 – 15:45 Fursuit walk (optional, usually at least one committee member will remain at the pub).
Hey furs, it’s August and it’s time for our next Artist of the Month, Kite! Kite’s style uses a combination of pose, angle and perspective to create energetic scenes. Her work is action-packed and expressive, telling a story bringing the subjects to life. Also, the use of vivid colours only enhance the fun of her work and overall Kite’s style showcases how she is willing to push herself by not resorting to simple posing and backgrounds to tell the story she wants to tell.
A word from Kite
“Hi everyone. My name’s Kite. I’m 24 years old, a black fox from the UK. I first got into the fandom around 2008/2009. Back then, I’d seen some anthropomorphic drawings and the like on DeviantArt and was really into Sonic at the time when I discovered there was a whole fandom around the idea.
I’ve been into art since I was about 10 years old. When I was a kid, I thought my drawing skills sucked and it took winning a school competition to realise I was actually really good at this and really enjoyed it. From there, I just kept developing my art, working as hard as I could to reach my goals. Despite my secondary school screwing up and not giving me art class for my GCSEs, I managed to push through and went on to study Video Games Art and Design in University which really propelled my art skills by learning from those who had so much talent.
As for inspirations that helped me figure out what the heck I’m doing, I’d have to go with Van Gogh, Falvie, JMW Turner and recently Oselotti.” -Kite
