Fandom involvement[edit]

Rick's fursona is a brown and tan kangaroo named West of Heaven, and was previously a Pokemorph furret. He publicly identifies as a Christian and only creates from PG to mature art, refraining from depicting fully adult art. In 2017, he talked briefly about this, expressing a changing stance[1][2] and wishing to be consistent and upfront[3].

On June 29, 2011, Griffin released his short story, Argo.

Rick was a Guest of Honor at ConFuzzled 2014,[4] and he was announced as the Rocket City FurMeet 2014 GOH prior to that convention's cancellation.[5]


Rick Griffin is the author and artist of the webcomic series Housepets!, which won the Ursa Major Award for Best Anthropomorphic Comic Strip in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014.
