Guests of Honor

RECOGNISING THE CREATIVITY OF THE FANDOM.

Every year, Anthro New England chooses and invites two Guests of Honor to be featured for the upcoming event, those Guests of Honor typically create the artwork, and help develop the theme chosen for said year. We feature a selected image by the GOH, a little information about what they do, and their location, as well as one link to their work. If this link might lead to adult content, it will be marked with ‘(+18)’.

For 2022, we’ve chosen the following:

THE CREATORS OF “CIRCLES”

CREATORS, Guest of Honor 2022

Massachusetts & California, United States

View “Circles” on RabbitValley

Andy, Scott, and Steve have all been in the furry fandom since the early 90s. They used to all live together in Waltham, MA, where they conceived and began work on the comic Circles. Andy wrote the scripts, Steve made the layouts, and Scott did the finished art.

Andy and Steve are married and living with their partner Teko in Somerville. Andy enjoys grilling, baking, and cooking, as well as running D&D games. You can find his gaming blog, the DM’s Den, on Tumblr. He also writes the comic The Pigpen with artist Ecliptacafusion that can be found on Tapas and Twitter. Steve is heavily into Star Wars, board games, and 3-D design and printing.

After Waltham, Scott got married and moved to California, where he worked for many years in the games industry. He and his husband now live in Ohio, where he works in UX Design. He continues to work on various projects with Andy as well as on his comic Spatial Anomalies, which can be purchased through Comixology.

NIGHTLINEZ

ILLUSTRATOR, GUEST OF HONOR 2022

New Hampshire, USA

Visit NightlineZ’s Furaffinity

Elliot “NightlineZ” Mitchell is a furry artist from the woods of New Hampshire. He has been an active member of the local furry community for over a decade. In addition to being a full time artist, offering commissions and merchandise, he has also created art for multiple conventions, and was a long-time admin for the New Hampshire furry community!

NightlineZ’s art is inspired by 90s art and media, and influenced by the vaporwave art movement. Bright colors, retro media references, and surreal themes infuse his furry art with a feeling of nostalgia. His art invites you to experience the exhilaration of a childhood lived in the 90s.

Currently NightlineZ is living his dreams of being a full-time artist. He attends multiple conventions a year, and sells original art, prints, stickers, and pins at his convention table and through his online shop. NightlineZ also runs a chat on Telegram for fans of Obscure Media, where members share videos, images, and information about difficult-to-find media of the 90s and earlier.
