Carmen K. Welsh Jr., also known as CopperSphinx, The Angry Goblin, or Kayfey, is a furry artist and writer who lives in Miami, Florida, U.S.A.[1]


Carmen's "furriness" began in pre-kindergarten when she wrote and illustrated her own book, Cat the Bat,[2] which soon led to a comic-panel sci-fi series about a crew of felines in outer space. Later stories led to superhero dogs, fantasy cats, and other creatures, beings both real and imagined. Often she would draw a character and then write their back-story.

Carmen's influences and interests include mythology, fables, 1960s suspense tales, history, sociology, science, technology, required reading in school, science fiction/fantasy (both films and books), foreign films, indie films, young-adult novels, illustrated children's books, comic books, comic strips, and graphic novels). She is also fond of Japanese manga and other Asian-related media.

Carmen also attends Sci-Fi conventions.
