Guest of Honour

Shadow Raccoon

We are pleased to announce ‘Shadow Raccoon’ as our GOH for 2020.

Shadow Raccoon has successfully turned his hobby of fursuiting, into Blogging, reviews, stories, How to’s and live-stream videos. This has in turn allowed viewers to experience events or items they may not necessarily be able to see for themselves. The light hearted comedy mixed in with well researched opinions, displays Shadow raccoons professionalism, passion and lovable character. In previous years at JFTW he has entertained us with his game show! Where the quirky and ad-hock nature of game shows were celebrated. TBC for this year.

Shadow Raccoon recently went abroad to Tokoyo, Japan for further video research and of course, explore a whole new country! We are sure he will share some of his experiences that were not mentioned in the Japan trip video.

You will find his channel over on youtube: SUBSCRIBE HERE

He makes weekly furry YouTube videos on topics such as movies, furry conventions and even commercials. Every video has been created with the furry fandom in mind and he’s not afraid to try out new, and random topics too! New videos usually every Wednesday; with occasional bonus videos and livestreams too.

What better person to guide us on our journey to space! As an avid reviewer of many fine wares, he recommends the following;

To eat: ‘Mozzarella, I stick it in everything!’
To play: Mario Odyssey and Stardew Valley.

Check out his videos below

Good news! Not only will he be about the convention, he will also be hosting a panel as well as being a judge in our various competitive events.

I wonder if he will film another youtube video at JFTW?

Guest of Honour


We are pleased to announce ‘Ndro’ as our Staff GOH for 2020.

Ndro is a Professional Graphic Designer, Writer and provides Human amusement at an hourly rate. He is based in the North East of England and has been with the convention from it’s first year. Providing graphic and typography support via the Creative Team. Now 5 years on, JFTW never could have managed without him. He’s a fountain of knowledge when it comes to obscure media, a determined perfectionist and a tea drinker.

Ndro is currently going through the process of publishing a set of short stories! We’re hoping he will bring a flavour of which to the convention for a reading.

You will find most of his written works here:

As a big film nerd and an avid reader of general space rubbish, he has recommended the following;

To watch: ‘Blade Runner’, Terry Gilliams ‘Brazil’ and ‘Blues Brothers’.
To read: Night Watch (Terry Pratchett), Necromancer (William Gibson), anything by Philip K Dick.

Hes a big fan of British based comic ‘2000AD’… so of course a big fan of our theme this year.

Ndro helps out our Creative Team, from PR graphics to Conbook editing. He goes over all of our media with a magnify glass before it goes to print. Muttering about PDF resolutions and email compression. Even quoting Pantone colour references in his sleep! He is also one of the key members that helped shape JFTW image and logo!

Want to meet Ndro?

He will be joining us for the duration of the convention, you’ll most likely see him inspecting a pint at the bar.

Ndro will also be taking part in various panels and events. Details will be confirmed soon, but for now please check out his work!
