Tim Johnson, or just T.J., also known as Ravenwolf and Stasis Delirium, is an artist.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Tim discovered the online furry fandom scene in 1995, and has drawn heavily ever since, starting with his own Felwroth, and previously on House Rancourt, Fanarchive, Yerf and FurNation.

Tim does not use the term "furry" to describe his work, instead of calling his anthropomorphic animals "critters". He is welcoming toward his furry fans but does not identify himself as a part of fandom.


Tim's style draws heavily from Wendy Pini's Elfquest and from such fantasy artists as Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, and Clyde Caldwell. He is best known for large-named tribal-themed barbarians popular with werewolf fans and has been suggested[who?] to be the artist (or at least one of the artists) who launched the "tribal" trend in furry fandom.[citation needed]

Tim's work spans the emotional spectrum from playful and whimsical to dark and desolate. Fans of his work are particularly moved by the emotive content of his pieces, and by the richness of detail in the characters, he portrays, often telling the stories of his characters through a single work of art.

Tim's best-known characters are the wolfik couple Fakail (a highborn mage) and Lyssiah (a wild barbarian), and their two adventuring children, Skrajah and V'jarrh. These four characters have appeared in different incarnations in Tim's work, and collaboratively with Justin Carpenter in their Aman'Dun desert kingdom stories.

Tim also collaborated with Justin on the early therianthropy site, WolfHome, and was involved with the San Paolo stories on The American Riviera MUCK.
