Taw Echo (born July 24) is a Canada-based digital artist and 3D modeler. He is the Forum Head and a Director of Weasyl. Outside of his career as a Community Manager, he tends to work on a variety of personal projects and hobbies, keeping him busy most of the time.

Fursona[edit]

Taw's fursona is a Black Flying Fox (Pteropus alecto). His fur is black with a grey chest and belly. His wings are attached to his back, not down his arms and sides like a typical bat.

Taw has blue eyes and medium-length black hair. A small pair of glasses usually could be found perched on his snout. Ironically, although he is a fruit bat, he is allergic to apples.

Laid back and sweet were the easiest ways to describe him. However, he is an introvert by nature; socializing wears him down and he usually needs some peace and quiet to relax.

Furry fandom[edit]

Taw became active in the fandom midway through 2009, mainly via IRC chatting, furry game servers, and posting art on Fur Affinity. Taw purchased a fursuit from Temperance in 2010, and has occasionally worn it around his hometown for fun, such as going to Denny's or random outings with friends or local furs.

Taw attended VancouFur 2012. This was his first furry convention, although he had been to a few anime conventions previously.

Art[edit]

Taw mainly specializes in 3D modelling, particularly hard surfaces and level design. Additionally he dabbles in other forms of digital media, such as space-themed wallpapers and photo manipulations. He graduated from a 3D Game Animation and Modelling program in September, 2012. He previously used to study cinematography and photography in his spare time.

Weasyl[edit]

Taw came across Weasyl one night in September, 2011, stumbling upon an upload by Kihari. He offered to help in the form of making some designs and images to help spruce up the look of the project, before Aden took over in regards to the design. As Forum Head, he puts together the functionality and style of the forums and maintains them.

On September 2nd, 2013 he stepped down from the project temporarily due to personal reasons unrelated to the project. However, a month later he returned as an Admin, using the time off to focus on family and his career until he was more available again. Since then he has resumed his role as one of the site's Directors.
