About Jurann Foxtail

[ Frank Gembeck's version of Jurann ]

Here's my Duckon 5 conbadge, recently re-scanned with my new scanner. The image is a lot sharper now that it has been scanned. Click on the image to load the full-size 133k version. It was drawn by Frank Gembeck, Jr. and is an excellent character drawing of Jurann. If you look closely, it even looks like me IRL. You're the best, Frank!

Al Mackey was comissioned for this piece, which was my CF East 1996 conbadge. It was drawn totally on his Amiga computer in 800x600 resolution, I got the chance to watch him work at CF East on some other pieces, and his style is truly one of a kind. Click on the image to view the full-size 37k version. [ Al Mackey's version of Jurann ]

[ Jim Pigtain's version of Jurann ]

This was a rather hasty but still very nice commission Jim Pigtain did for me at Duckon 5. The flaming red aura doesn't do much for me, though some would argue that it makes sense. Go figure. Click the image to see the full sized 335k version, it's very nice. Thanks, Jim.

This is a piece SoulFox did for me, it's a really great study of my character, even though there were some things missing, I've added as much as I could with digital touch-ups.
WARNING!: This is an adult, erotic piece, please do not load it if you are underage for viewing sexual content or if you find such material offensive! The full-size and uncensored version is 215k in size, and is a great piece of work. Thank you, SoulFox!

[ Jim Groat's version of Jurann ] Here is the conbadge Jim Groat did for me in a hurry at Duckon 7 in 1998. With his extensive work in the furry and sc-fi/fantasy community, and his great comic strip, it's an honor to have a piece of work from his hands. Click the thumbnail to see the full 66k image.

SoulFox strikes again! In another erotic piece, go figure. Anyway, this is one of himself and I enjoying a little joust. Now he does his own digital work, so this piece is untouched my yours truly. *pout*
WARNING!: This is an adult, erotic piece, please do not load it if you are underage for viewing sexual content or if you find such material offensive! The full-size and uncensored version is 206k in size, and is a great piece of work. Thanks again, SoulFox!

While the name Jurann Foxtail is no longer relatively new to the fandom (some might argue), I got actively involved in the internet fandom in February of '96, and I'm nothing new to anthropomorphics. Ever since I was old enough to know the difference between man and animals, I always liked animals more and wanted to be one myself. But why stop there, why not gain the added benefits of wanting to be morphic and retain the advantages of human traits? I've been actively involved in anthropomorphics for many years, in it's study, in it's practice (through art, writing, and role-playing), and now in it's highest level. The VR roleplay and interaction as a furry anthro is the best current extension of exploring this dream.

While it is sometimes difficult for some (including myself) to either seperate VR from RL in their furry lives, or integrate it completely, I have chosen the latter and found it works quite well with my needs and living. Jurann is basically me in every way mentally, but physiologically different online. When you talk to Jurann, you are talking to me, and when Jurann speaks, it's me talking. In other words, there is no player or character, Jurann is the physical mask through which I exist online. You may wish to dig into the topic of spiritual therianthropy for more details on this concept, I'm no expert and it still hasn't been fully explained to me in either simple nor agreeable terms.

I am currently very heavily involved in the online furry fandom in many ways, on IRC, on MUCKs, Webpages, Mailing Lists, Newsgroups and more. I'm also an aspiring furry artist and science fiction writer among many, many other things. Though I once praised and glorified Yiffnet IRC as my main hangout for live and lag-free interactive chatting and a little RP, there have been many people and things that have turned me off to that genre of furs. MUCKs are where I go to kick back and play around, and where I spend most of my free time these days. Most online furs also do the same and crowd into the dozens of furry-based or furry-friendly MUCKs and MUDs out there, I even run a MUCK of my own called FuroticaMUCK. See my other webpages for more info or links to the FuroticaMUCK website. Webpages are great primary resources for learning and keeping up with the times and finding new furs to either meet IRL or look out for online. (You're on one now... =) As far as mailing lists, there are dozens out there in many different formats. They are obscure and often very hard to find, so there's no real resource I can offer at the present, but if you run one or are on one, please contact me to post info about it on Furry Grand Central, my furry news and web resource center.
