Faux Fur by mirroreyesserval Faux Fur by mirroreyesserval

PRINTS AVAILABLE!

An old college assignment where I did an anti-fur statement for my Biology Final.

I don't like seeing animals killed JUST to make expensive clothing. I hope they used every part of that human. Waste not.

Mixed media - 8"x6.5"

For the record: I'm not a vegetarian. I'm not a vegan. Unless you're sitting at the computer in one of your many mink coats that you wear to feel rich and important please refrain from flaming me for threatening your way of life. Also, I will never join Peta.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-01-29
Whether you're for or against fur clothes or not you have to admit *mirroreyesserval draws an interesting idea in Faux Fur, so it got featured today with a Daily Deviation because it's both visually appealing with a clever way to deliver this message.

Like so many, I agree with you. I have a real fur coat only because my great grandmother gave it to me. I wish to use it because I don't want those poor bunnies to die in vain... but the coat smells like smoke so its sitting in a plastic back in my closet. Once I saw a video of some type of animal farm and they were breeding and killing them just for their fur, and the people were doing it and thinking nothing about the animal's pain as the electric shocks went through its poor little body. That kind of cruelty makes me sick... It's one thing to go into the wild and hunt the animal to use for a basic need for life such as warmth and food, but it's a whole other thing to breed and kill them for no purpose but to dispose of them, wasting their lives, producing something that will only benefit the few people who are wealthy enough to contribute to a cause much greater than that.

Sorry for the rant... Anyway, wonderful art!!!

Its horrible how some fur farms are cruel to animals, but here is a video of a good fur farm if it makes you feel better :)

PS: A lot of fur farms sell the meat to zoos, so fur has some good use. You do want the snake or tiger to eat, right?

All the dislikes on that video. Wow.

Only thing I wonder is if the animals ever get out of their cages to walk around and stretch out their legs.

And those are horrible fur farms that usually produce yucky and ugly garments, usually they become bankrupt which is good.

I love fur, I wish to be a furrier or taxidermist when I am older. Most of the fur "facts" are rumors by the PETA. But I can see you already know that xD.

But this is so funny, it is going in my group.

You monster!!!! How would you like it if an animal came, cut of your skin with a scapel, and wore it?

Little-rolling-bean Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
How would you like it if an animal came by, minced you into human meat and sold you at macdonalds? 

I make sure the fur I buy is from the most humane sources, and that the leftover animal goes to feeding our pets and zoo animals. Most of my fur is vintage fur anyways, and vintage fur only gives money to the antique store owners. 

Are we able to have a decent debate about this or are you gonna scream "ABUSE ABUSE ABUSE ABUSE!!!" over and over again? Because if so, do not expect a reply from me.

What a coincidence, I happened to be drawing a raccoon when I took a break and read your comment. XD If you're in the market for some human leather there is a website for it... pretty sure it's satire though: www.humanleather.co.uk/

Lol cool, people donate skin? I'm also against animals being killed ONLY for their fur because that's a waste. The one I found was roadkill and I'd rather not see it smashed by cars and the meat was chopped up for my dogs since it was still fresh.

Nope, still fake. When I was little I thought 'faux' was pronounced 'fox' soooo... since it's a picture of a fox wearing "fur", that's where my mind went. I really don't have a better explanation for the title. :)

Ah, don't worry! Most fur farms use all of the animal. The fur for... for, and the meat, for example, gets used in pet food. They also make fertilizer and other things like that.
The drawing is reaaaaally great, by the way! I love the coloring.

"I hope they used every part of that human." Lol, good to see a moderate anti-fur statement. As a person who very much enjoys my fur coat because it's the only thing warm enough to ride my horse in during the winters around here, it's good to see others are in the anti-extravagance camp that straddles the two extremes.
