Artist Lounge

The annual Artist Lounge is back, this time with a larger space! Get ready for 2 days of fun and let’s get drawing!


What is the Artist Lounge?

The motto of the artist lounge is that the fandom is about “more than just fursuits”. It’s a place where attendees can enjoy communicating with each other through their art or art activities. You can spend your time in the lounge drawing, exchange artworks, take on commissions and much more. Of course, you’re welcome to join the programs that are held in the lounge as well!

Note: Various art materials will be available for rent in the lounge, but availability is limited. We strongly recommend that you bring your own art materials.

  • January 6th (Sat./Day 2), 2024, 10:00 - 21:00
  • January 7th (Sun./Day 3), 2024, 10:00 - 18:30

What Kind of Programs Will Be Available?

The planned programs are shown below.

JMoF Art Competition 2024

We will hold an art competition. Why not present your work to an audience and show everyone your great passion and dedication for art? This year, the theme of the competition is “GHOST”! For more information including how to apply, please see the “Art Competition” page.

JMoF Workshop

The JMoF Workshop will be held during the same opening hours as the lounge. Come bring illustrations, turn them into badges, or laminate them! You can even take commissions for your creations! Note: You can make one item per illustration for each kind of service.


JMoF Handscroll

In the lounge, we will set up a looooooooong roll of paper on which you can draw anything! If you don’t have enough space to draw, just unwind the paper a little further.

Why not draw something about your best memory of JMoF so far? Of course, it’s up to you if you draw a detailed piece or just a sketch!

Note: We may publish the contents of the handscroll on our official SNSs or website.


Open Commissions File

In the lounge, we will set up an A4-sized file folder in which anyone can leave their “open for commissions” sheet. You can bring one you prepared in advance or create one spontaneously on-site. Both is fine!

If you want to participate in other programs but also make use of the available time to get in some art commissions, this is for you! Make the most of it and enjoy JMoF to the fullest!

You don’t know how to make your “open for commissions” sheet? We’ve prepared the template data (JPG/PDF). You can use it as it is or customize it to your own way of getting commissions!

We look forward to seeing you there!
