That's because a lot of the people doing this stuff are "furry"-fans,
themselves. And, yes, they're often looked down upon by their co-
workers. In fact, I'm told that any artist who gets the "furry" label
stuck on them can have a hard time in the industry.

And often this attitude is very hypocritical. An acquaintence of mine
who was a production manager at one studio told me of one of his
co-workers, an animation director who was constantly down on anything
"furry." Yet this same fellow would come in on weekends in order to get
a female character he was working on to "look just right."
