Apoxon is an artist and anthropomorphic dragon, currently residing in Surrey, BC, Canada with her mate, Mediar. She was first introduced to furry through the artistic works of Weremagnus, Seel Dingo, and Stoney in 2003, and, realizing her own art style gravitated towards anthropomorphism, began drawing more and more in this style. By 2004 she had carved out a small niche for herself on SheezyArt, having been banned from deviantART by overly conservative parents. It was on sheezyart where she met more members of the furry community, including Hunter Bahamut, Mad and Lt. Dalius.

After several years of being active within the online furry community, and being tired of watching as many of her friends were able to meet up at furcons, she and Mad decided it was time to attend Anthrocon, which they did for the first time in 2010. Here she got to meet many of the furs she'd met online, in person, as well as several of her artistic influences.

Anthrocon was a large turning point for Apoxon and Mad, as it was here that they realized there was an active furry community locally within the Lower Mainland, and they both vowed to become more active in it. Apoxon also promised herself that she would start working on a fursuit asap.

Currently, she owns two and a half fursuits; Sony (now retired), a creature of her own design known as a Garden Dragon; 'Tachi, an oriental dragon (his body, tail and paws are interchangeable with Sony's); and her newest suit, Pixi, a pink/black/white clouded leopard.

She is well known within the local community for her love of Pepsi, PIXI STIX, and sugar of all forms, as well as her unfortunate 'yeep-ing' habit.


Art[edit]

Desert Storm.jpg

Apoxon is an active artist within the furry community. Her favorite medium is digital, but traditional ink is a close second. She's sold artwork in art shows at several different furry conventions; Anthrocon (2010, 2011), RainFurrest (2011), and VancouFur 2012. She is known for mashing cartoon and realism together, in a somewhat unique way.

Writing[edit]

Apoxon graduated in 2010 with a degree in creative writing, and enjoys writing short stories, poetry, and occasionally, longer fiction. Her writing, however, has been put on hold, as she is currently back in school studying to pursue a career that will be more likely to put food on her table.

Sewing[edit]

Apoxon is also fairly well-known for her plushie-making skills. This started in 2005 when she decided she wanted to make a plush version of an old character named Pox (not her fursona). Despite the horrendous result, she was commissioned by a friend to sew another plush, and thus she began to hone in on her skills.

After several years of taking commissions, she found she needed a break, and now accepts only a limited number, typically through auction-style bidding. This serves several purposes: limiting the wait-times for buyers; ensuring she does not undersell herself; avoiding burn-out; controlling the wait-list.


Suit making[edit]

It was only very recently that Apoxon discovered fursuit making. To date, she has made several suits, progressing in leaps and bounds with each.

  • Sony (Partial- September 2010/Full-suit March 2011)
  • 'Tachi (June 2011 - Head only)
  • Mediar (Collaboration with Mediar) (September 2011 - head and tail ONLY)
  • Darwin (Partial- December 2012)
  • Pixi (Full-suit- February 2012)
  • Stix (Collaboration with Mediar) (March 2012 - various parts)

Fursuits[edit]

Apoxon has made each of the suits she owns, as well as designed each character.

Sony[edit]

Sony was Apoxon's first suit. He is a garden dragon with very, very large, butterfly shaped ears. His head was constructed primarily of foam, off a mesh base. He features a mobile jaw (with hinges attached quite differently than most mobile jaws), and a super flexible tail.

His original tail was over four feet long and quite rigid. Because of where it sat, Apoxon was not able to move quickly or sharply without 'taking people out at the knees' and after some thought, she re-designed his tail, making it shorter and more manageable.

'Tachi[edit]

Short for Hitachi, 'Tachi was Apoxon's second head. He matches Sony's body and tail, as well as his feet and handpaws, and thus Apoxon needs only to switch the heads. She wanted to try constructing something with less constricted visibility, as well as something that was smaller and more easily transported and managed. 'Tachi worked perfectly in this regard, and she was able to travel to Anthrocon 2011 with him (where he proceeded to hand out pixi stix to everyone he saw). The purple feathers on his head tend to molt, and occasionally Apoxon will re-furbish the head-fluff. It is not uncommon at events to find purple feathers laying around, and at Anthrocon, this was frequent enough to be turned into a drinking game.


Pixi.jpg

Pixi[edit]

Pixi is Apoxon's newest suit; a pink clouded leopard with black and white spots. Unlike her previous suit(s), Pixi has very large feet (specifically styled after Barley). Pixi was made as a companion suit for Stix, a blue clouded leopard, also with black and white spots. Stix is owned and worn by Mediar.

Pixi is also the only female suit owned by Apoxon.



Zero[edit]

While Apoxon is known as 'Apoxon' or 'Poxie' by most of the local furries, her fursona's name is Zero. She doesn't mind the confusion, however; there are lots of 'Zero's but so far, only one Apoxon.

Zero is a blue 'Hrakken' dragon hybrid, with feline and canine tendencies. The original concept art was done by Apoxon in early 2005, but the overall design has not changed significantly since then.

Her character is able to take on several different forms; anthro, feral, and chibi, depending on her mood and artistic gumption at the time.

  • Feral Zero - is very large and considerably more dragon-like in appearance. Her fur is also much shaggier.
  • Anthro Zero - is the normal, every-day Zero
  • Chibi Zero - is quite hampster-like, and about the same size. Apoxon typically draws Chibi-Zero when she wants to doodle something quickly, or when she wants to attempt to draw something cute.


Frost[edit]

Frost is Apoxon/Zero's alter-ego. He's a lesser-known part of her fursona, and often appears in artwork as something of a ghost. He is an unknown, slightly rabbit-looking creature with a long tail, ending in an eye. He's cynical as well as painfully observant (and blunt), pointing out Zero's mistakes as well as offering insight into things she hadn't necessarily considered. Though the two do not always appear to get along, they each rely heavily upon the other.


BC Furries[edit]

Since Anthrocon 2010, Apoxon has become quite active within the BC Furries, attending monthly bowling meets, rollerskating meets, and various other activities.

Dinnermeets[edit]

Currently, Apoxon organizes monthly dinnermeets for the local furs. Venues change each month and are chosen by suggestions made by other furs, which are then voted on.
