I've wanted to do the story for a while and finally got the opportunity - my boss was like "Your co-worker is going on vacation so I need you to write a business story for us. Either you come up with something or I will find something for you!"
I think it turned out really really well and was a great chance for me to present the fandom, and fursuiting, in a positive light as well as help Ithabise get off the ground with some commissions. Granted this was a business story so I couldn't go into that much detail about the fandom itself but I did the best I could with what I had to work with.
I also got to lay out the newspaper this issue, so I put a photo of Dyno (Ithabise's German Shepherd suit) really big right on the cover and teased to the story inside. I'll post pictures tomorrow!
I hope everyone enjoys the article and thanks for taking the time to read it! (click the link below)
