SheezyArt/Sheezy.Art, or just Sheezy, is a furry friendly online art site devoted to all types of media, including traditional, digital, photography, writing, pixel art, and animation.


  • November 30, 2003 - SheezyArt is created by Channel Cat.
  • Summer of 2005 - SheezyArt suffers intermittently blackouts due to server problems.[citation needed] This resulted in the site being $700.00 short on its server bills, which are usually paid by ad revenue; however, site members' donations helped to pay the bill.[citation needed]
  • April 22, 2006 - Channel Cat announced that he would relinquish the site's ownership to administrators Spencer and Thor.
  • May 31, 2013 - SheezyArt's staff announces on their Facebook page that they were:
[temporarily] closed to the public, while we prepare [...] a completely new site design, logo & branding, as well as a freshly minted technology platform.[citation needed]
User data was planned to be preserved through the transition.
  • September 17, 2014 - SheezyArt's staff announces that SheezyArt 's hiatus will continue and that ownership would return to ChannelCat, with Spencer staying in the same staff role.[1]
  • November 7, 2015 - Spencer admits that:
(I)n all probability, SA will not be able to return any time in the near future", due to a lack of access to the files and the staff's inability to personally restore or maintain the site.[2]
  • April 2021 - SheezyArt is revived by former user Ry as Sheezy.Art. The site was now under new management by a former Sheezy user known as Ry.[3]
  • January 3, 2022 - Ry announces that Sheezy.Art will be shut down as they were unable to keep up with the influx of new users and necessary continued maintenance of the site; the site's Patreon and Ko-fi campaigns were already closed the previous day. The community moved to a Discord server.[4]
  • February 1, 2022 - Sheezy.Art will enter read-only mode as it prepares to be shut down.[4]
  • March 1, 2022 - Sheezy.Art shuts down.
  • December 17, 2023 - Sheezy.Art is reopened by Ry![5] with restricted sign-ups.

Features and rules[edit]

SheezyArt's visual template is based on the same used at the DeviantArt art gallery, and as so, allows user commentary on artwork, journals, and user pages. SheezyArt, like DeviantArt, offered a set forums in which the community could gather.

Works containing explicitly adult material/subject matter were forbidden, but no longer are.

SheezyArt had a tolerance for harmless trolling and, to some degree, encouraged.[citation needed] Argumentative and aggressive behavior was often seen and tolerated,[citation needed] but outright aggression and harassment is usually reprimanded.


Former Sheezy mascot Dante

SheezyArt's OLD mascot was a raccoon named Dante (created by cosplayer, prop/product designer, and former staff member Vensy), until he was removed in March 2007 from the site. Channel Cat officially stated this was because "We felt he didn't represent the artists well."[clarify][citation needed]

A SheezyArt club, The Bring Back Dante Club :), was created to preserve the memory of the former mascot.[6]

SheezyArt's newest mascot]] is a rabbit named Sheemz.


In January 2005, SheezyArt banned all adult material content on its archive, deleting all media tagged as "adult", citing a new server host's policy restrictions on said content.[7]

Many adult artists[who?] expressed disbelief at the administrators' explanation, believing the new policies to be unfair and unnecessary at best, a form of intentional persecution as worst,[citation needed] with some leaving the site altogether.

SheezyArt and furry[edit]

In its original incarnation, SheezyArt all types of content, including mature media, which made it a popular archive for adult art artists, including those in the furry fandom.

During the site's 2005 adult art ban, some of these furry artists would migrate to such galleries as Fur Affinity and y!Gallery, both of which were at the time furry-friendly and without content restrictions.
