His career extends back to the late 1970s, contributing to the pre-furry APA Vootie. His work has also appeared in Furrlough, Genus, and Furplay, and he has self-published a number of A5-format zines and portfolios, some of which have been sold through Ed Zolna's Mailbox Books.
In author's notes in early-1980s portfolios and samplers, Jerry describes the main influences on his art as a mixture of 1920's horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, anime pioneer Osamu Tezuka, and classic underground cartoonist Vaughn Bode. Jerry is still active, doing art on commission.
He had contributed some satirical caricature media poking fun at fandom figures to the site Crush! Yiff! Destroy! before the site demise, along with a couple of short pieces in which he reminisces about his experiences in the fandom. Personal essays: "I remember Brian" and "Critterology" vs. "Phurries", The first essay tells Jerry's side of a feud with furry artist Brian O'Connell; the second illustrates Jerry's view of a common attitude gap between early-period funny animal artists vs later furry fandom ones.
Haku Hasin (species)
Jerry is probably best known for his Haku Hasin, also known as Bambioids, a race of humanoid Cervidae (Deer) alien beings. Along with them, he is best known for his other two furry alien species, the Ganarfs and the Teijeinese/Cat-Bears.
These are merely the three most common of a collection of Collins Critters -- Ghouls, Gorts, Chipurra/"Chippies", Anuboids, Courtesanoids/"Panzerkitties", Gorilla Girls -- many of which were used only once or twice.
Wurf! is the all-purpose happy sound of Collins Critters. Depending on context and tone, it can mean anything from fun to orgasm.
