This is the page where I will archive the information behind the page, such as copyrights, old update details and such.
And for anyone that's keeping track, the FIP now takes up over 185,000,000 bytes in 3800 files over 590 directories. Yikes! And to think it's all free. Cerine and I would appreciate that you would thank the extremely nice furs that run macrophile.com for hosting the FIP when you have a few minutes free to send an email, balloons, candy, beer, or just large sums of unmarked bills in small denominations. ^^;
p.s. I'd have a fancy visitor counter to tell you how many visit the FIP but some on our viewers have expressed concerns (and a few barbs) about anything that tries to put a cookie in their browser so the FIP will not have such and will just make up numbers. Heh. (Ok, yes, I could use the logs from the host but I don't know how to access them nor do I know how to read them, I'm just this airhead purple panther who runs the site, I'm not intelligent or anything)
p.p.s. Is it me or does the lack of inflation and balloon fetishes in japanese art seem odd to you too? If anyone finds such, let the rest of us know. Apparently only one well known japanese artist does inflation and none have anything to do with balloons. You'd think with pervasive BE/PE and latex fetishes they would have more inflation and balloon type art... If you know anyone in the far East or found such places, drop me a line or post a link to the FurSize list.
12/5/01: Added a link to Drake's site and fixed a few others that were horribly outdated. Also added the stories for you're reading pleasure by the authors: Jason Collins, RC Alfieri, Shutaro, and Strega.
12/4/01: Ah, well, it's been three months since an update and you probibly thought something went wrong. Nah, just a lazy panther, but you all know how lazy us cats are, heh. This is a freekin' huge update so I'll just list the names here and get to the stories in a few days. New artists: Amethyst (13), Cookie Dragoness (1), LGE (1), Nia (7), PsychoFox (3), RoverPup (1), Teaselbone (4), and Yiffer (5).

9/10/01: Erf. All the busted links fixed, I hope, and a new look to the thumbnails as they're updated. Nothing new added, just a lot of repairs. :)
9/7/01: Thought the FIP croaked, eh? Not entirely. My pc died and like the Titanic, took everything with it. I know there's a few images and stories missing but I haven't a clue what they are so if you see something that should be on the FIP and it's not, just send it on to me and I'll get it in the next update... which will probibly be in a week, heh. Ready? Here we go. New art from Aldi (1), Bighorse (10), Caitlynn (2), Dorian (2), Fraggle (34), Kelvin (1), KonekoRyu (1), Mauvais Mouffette (4), Mechlion (11), a misc pic (1), Rakeesh (2), Sebastian (1), Stretch (23), and Zs (1). But wait, there's more! New stories from Caitlynn (1) and RC Alfieri (5). Yikes, the biggest update yet and there's still a few missing.
4/28/01: Been awhile but I haven't forgotten. We add a new artist, Stretch (7) as well as a slew of art from Aldi (1), Aubrin (1), Bighorse (5), Caitlynn (1), Fraggle (4), Fraxx (1), Johnny (1), Kaijima (3), KonekoRyu (2), Sebastian (2), and Stellos (7). 35 new images! Kaijima also wrote two stories that go with his art so please read them and tell us your thoughts on the FurSize mailing list. *^.^*
3/21/01: Yikes, new stuff already? Added two new artists, Aldi (1) and Meanbean (4), plus art from our established roster of Bighorse (1), Fraggle (1), Johnny (1), Kiken (16), Robert Hill (5), and Stellos (1). 30 new images!
3/13/01: My birthday (33 on 3/13! To quote Schoolhouse Rock, "Three, it's a magic number.") and a much anticipated update for all you eager furs. Added new art from Dorian (1), Fraggle (15), Sebastian (1), Shannon Douglas (7), Tincrash (3), and Zs (1). That's 28 new images! Also added 5 new stories from Shutaro (2), Rann Aridorn (1), and Caitlynn (2). [I figured out how to do bookmarks so you can jump right to the authors; neaters!]
2/02/01: Whoops, forgot 5 more of Fraggle's images. Just call me an airhead... ^^;
2/01/01: Ack, procrastinating again I am, gomennasi... But I do hope you enjoy the gang of new artists, Cerulean (3), ForceFedFox (2), Fraggle (7), and Mouvais Mouffette (2) plus new art from Caitlynn (4), Kamesama (1), KonekoRyu (3), Roadkillmark (1), Sebastian Rubber Mage (2 - hold your mouse pointer over the image for the caption), Tincrash (1), Xydexx (1), and Zs (1). That's 28 new images, enjoy!
12/20/00: Christmas Update! We've gained two new artists so please give a big balloony greeting to Aubrin (2) and Roadkillmark (1). Added new art by Caitlynn (6), Kaijima (2), Kamesama (5), and Lou Frank (10). I also took the liberty of animating Lou's art as well as re-coding KonekoRyu's animation for Cerine (see links on the main page).
11/1/00: New month, new art, and a new face! Welcome aboard Morph (1)! Also added new art by Caitlynn (1), Dorian (1), Frail Hellion (1), Fixate (17), Kamesama (7), Rakeesh (2), Sebastian Rubber Mage (2), Xydexx (5), and Zack Stanton (1) and two new stories by Caitlynn to read. That's 38 new images folks!
9/19/00: Almost a month this time. Yeah, the balloon business has been kinda slow. Added two new artists Kaijima (1) and Roz Gibson (1) plus new art by Frail Hellion (1). And a story by me for a change, imagine that!
7/30/00: A mixed bag this round folks and a total of 5 images. Adding new artists Flammie (1) and Sebastian Rubber Mage (2) plus new art from KonekoRyu (2). We also received 2 new stories by Stardrake and I got around to converting Anima's Burgeoning Desires 2. As a special treat, Stellos created 2 animations! Onsite animations can be found below the artists table on the Image page. I've also reformatted the Image page for quicker loading by using multiple tables.
7/7/00: Ack, sorry about the late update folks. Total of 22 images this time. Adding new artist Meowth (2) plus new art from Bighorse (10), Caitlynn (3), Gnome (3), Johnny (1), Kelvin (1), Zack Stanton (2). Adding 6 new stories by Johnny (1), Rose De Stitches (1), Caitlynn (3), and Unknown (1).
5/14/00: Updated a bit later than I had planned on but there's quite a bit to check out. We have a total of 40 new images! Adding new artists Catfracture (7), Gnome (4), Rakeesh (2), Terriekitten (1) plus new art from Bighorse (5), Dorian (1), Dracmore (1), Fraxx (3), KoneokoRyu (6), Roxicat (1), Sardonyx (1), Shannon Douglas (1), Striker Redwolf (1), and Zack Stanton (3).
4/17/00: Well pull my plug and call me soft in the head, we're not even done with April and we got new art, and artists, coming out of the woodwork. Added new artists Fixate (6) and Steelfang (14) plus more art from Bighorse (5), Fraxx (7), Kelvin (2), KonekoRyu (4), and Shannon Douglas (1) for a total of 29 new pictures. Deleted one artist at their request.
3/5/00: Another first, more stories than pictures submitted this time. Since stories are small, I've converted them all to HTML while leaving a link to the original format so you can read it as the author intended. You'll need Windows Write or a similar program to view the DOC files properly however. Added the stories Burgeoning Desires by Anima, A Tiger by the Tail by D.B.Cooper, and Kali's Rescue by Strigoii. Added 3 new pictures by Caitlynn (3).
2/24/00: The largest single update yet! Every artist has been indexed or re-indexed as needed, I also moved some images from the misc folder to their proper places as well as killed that last of the old thumbnails, even added my own page to the link list. Added a new story, Uncanny Conventions from Caitlynn, a new artist Dorian (5) and art from Alex Raccoon (1), Bighorse (4), Caitlynn (2), Robcat (7), Sardonyx Fox (2 pics), and Xydexx (1).
2/2/00: Hyooge update and with the updated version of Arles 3.1 I can finally show the GIFs in the index pages. Yattah! Added 30 new images by Alex Raccoon (1), Bighorse (15), Caitlynn (3), Mechlion (6), and Roy (5).
Happy New Year! To maximum inflation and beyond!
12/17/99: Yikes! Lots of data moving around today. Added new artist Caitlynn (5 pics) and new art from Bighorse (2 pics), Johnny (1 pic), Kelvin (1 pic), KonekoRyu (3 pics), Mechlion (3 pics), Shannon Douglas (2 pics), Striker (1 pic), and Tincrash (3 pics). Created a batch of infomation files for various artists, indexes for Doug and Templeton, and removed the old thumbnails for them.
11/29/99: Added new art by Frail Hellion (1 pic), Kelvin (1 pic), Kiken (1 pic), KonekoRyu (1 pic), Rubbertex Raccoon (4 pics), Shannon Douglas (3 pics), and Roy (6 pics, replacing 2 [boink!.gif and bubblna2.gif]).
11/18/99: Added new artists Icronite (1 pic) and Rubbertex Raccoon (5 pics). Added new art by Alex Raccoon (3 pics), Dracmore (1 pic), Fraxx (1 pic), KonekoRyu (4 pics), Shannon Douglas (2 pics), Striker (1 pic).
10/21/99: Created the homepage of the newest Studio H megacorporation, YiffTex Industires. Added new art by Alex Raccoon (1 pic), Bighorse (1 pic), Dracmore (1 pic), Kelvin (1 pic), Sardonyx Fox (1 pic), Stellos (11 pics), and Xydexx (1 pic).
10/13/99: Added links to Rangarig's inflation themed animations with thumbnails. Added new art by Alex Raccoon (1 pic), Kelvin (3 pics), and Shannon Douglas (15 new pics and 1 old pic [Red_01]). Removed obsolete art from Shannon Douglas (19 pics).
10/12/99: Added 4 entries to the Artist Idea GrabBag.
10/9/99: Since a lot of my ex-gallery art was of that goofy balloon panther I've gone and added it here. Most of the images in this update were commisions by me, Morphy, so I give myself permission for them to be here. Added artists Caribou (1 pic), Dracmore (1 pic), Eric W Schwartz (1 pic), Frostbyte (1 pic), Good Kitty Productions (1 pic), Rafferty (1 pic), and Sammy Skunk (1 pic). Added art by Lou Frank (5 pics), Bighorse (1 pic), Fraxx (1 pic), Kelvin (1 pic), and Roy (1 pic).
10/1/99: Added a bunch of indexes to the folders without such. Changed the index pages to "i" so the browsers can view the folders without going right after index.htm (ack!). Added art by Alex Raccoon (1 pic). Replaced missing art to Kelvin (1 pic) and Mercy Van Lack (1 pic).
9/29/99: The Arles indexing looks like the way to go but it still only works with JPEG files. I would love to use it but as half the images are in GIF format the utility is rather crippled. I will use it but note that any non-JPEG files will have to be accessed through the raw view. More art! KonekoRyu (7 pics) and Shannon Douglas (5 pics).
9/13/99: Added more art to KonekoRyu Pencils (6 pics).
9/12/99: Working on a new GUI for the viewers which I'll apply as the art folders are updated. Added a colored pencils section by request for KonekoRyu. Added new art to KonekoRyu (7 pics) and KonekoRyu Pencils (4 pics).
9/5/99: Found and added one more missing image to Bighorse's archive.
9/4/99: Yipes, pics coming in fast and furious! Renamed Donovan to Alex Raccoon by the artist's request. Added new artist KonekoRyu (2 pics). Added new art by Alex Raccoon (4 pics) and Bighorse (9 pics).
9/2/99: Wow, been awhile but I've moved
all the art over and squashed a few typos. The art
folders still lack a pretty index system but I'm hoping
Thumbs Plus can do it without making too much of a mess.
Added new artists; Kiken (10 pics), Fraxx (1 pic), Toro (1 pic), Striker (2 pics), Mechlion (2 pics), and Chris Sutor (2 pics). Added a huge pile of images that were waiting all this time too from the artists; Bighorse (a bunch!), Xydexx (1 pic), Shannon Douglas (a bunch!) and Donovan Roo (1 pic).
8/11/99: Added under stories; Cheri's Story.
5/26/99: Well, I've taken over and started on the overhaul of the site. No one will see this entry until I get onto loading everything back up but I wanted to include this marker in the books anyway. I've also gone through the old news and cleared out nearly all the links since they don't work anymore anyway.
2/5/99: One small mistake: it's not Jack the Dragon, but J·TechnoDragon (JTD still). And now - he's back, and I have an update to throw to the masses. Updated these: added a large picture series from Bighorse, added more from Sardonyx (again, sorry for the delay), added more pics from Donovan Roo (though, I'm unsure whether they're the final versions), and one pic from Scott Malcomson. Added one story from Phalan (about time we had a new one, eh?). My apologies for the delays in all this...hopefully this will be changed soon.
This means that everything that I have to put on
the pages is on the pages. If people wish to change/add/delete
pictures from all this, they need to get in contact with me.
1/27/99: I've heard many people ask me whether there is an update to the pages. There are some pics to add, but the updating is no longer really my fault, I have an assistant, Jack the Dragon, who does the thumbnails. I throw his thumbnails onto these pages as I get them.
That being said, there are two main updates at the moment which I can do (and should have done a while ago): I have updated the Fursize list page to include a few new quirks, including the IName problem (for some reason, the Fursize list is not getting through any free e-mail service run by IName, and it's not marked as spam by them).
Secondly, with much apologies, I add
Sardonyx's art to the page (which I should have done 2
12/12/98: No new updates, save this news: the Fursize list will be offline from December 18, 1998-January 5, 1999 for winter break. There will also be no new updates to this page during that period. There may be one more update before then. Artists, also note please: I am starting to get confused about what pics you want on these pages. This particularly has to do with Fursize. My default action is 'deny', so if your picture or pictures are not here and you wish them to be, e-mail me. Otherwise, they aren't going to end up here.
12/04/98: I'm tired. Really, I am. There have been updates to the site since the last listing, mostly in the Templeton, Winger, and Bighorse directories. Fixed misc. directory (I hope). I really don't have time to figure out what they were at the moment. Adding Skipp's story (after more than a month delay...sorry, Skipp).
11/17/98: Still doing revisions. Removed the text picture listings (they'll be back later). Added new artist Zs, added stuff to Axecat, Bighorse directories. More to add soon, when possible.
11/09/98: Made a few adjustments to the page on request. Fixed the majority of the Roxikat and Shannon Douglas links.
11/07/98: Looking at the counter at the bottom of this page, and seeing the number in 5 digits. Never thought about actually being popular when I created this page a little less than a year ago. But, hey, if the demand's there, you've got to fill it...one way or another. :)
Due to pure coincidence (but, hey, why not?), I have started the impetus for a FurSize WebRing to go with the mailing list. Like the mailing list, it will be devoted to web sites involving furries and disproportionate sizes of one way or another. :) The banner for that Ring will appear at the bottom of this page shortly. However, due to my time constraints (those of you who've been around me know what I mean), I'm not running the Ring. Instead, I'm passing that responsibility to my good friend, BoomerRoo ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). From what I hear, it's going along just fine.
Yes, I know, I still haven't fixed those directories. Please understand that I really have very little time to go fixing all those links. For the most part, Jack T. Dragon, my webpage helper, has been doing a lot of the nitty gritty work, including redesigning the webpages in general. He's been busy too. We'll get the pages fixed when we can.
I've added a link to Terminotaur's page below, and added a link to Engrish's pages on her request.
10/29/98: Been doing more or less continuous updating all month.
I'm noticing that some of the thumbnails and links aren't working right, especially in Shannon Douglas's and Roxikat's directories. This is likely due to long filenames, and is being worked on.
Added Shannon Douglas's directory.
Added new things from Bighorse, including a few more animated gif files.
Fixed most of the rest of the artist directories.
Been slowly working on the grab bag, though I do have other things I'm more interested in doing at the moment. Like writing inflatable stories.
There are other things that still need to be updated. They're being worked on as they can.
10/10/98 : In the middle of an update. School has been a pain, but now, thanks to the help of Jack T. Dragon, I'm getting a new update together, making the pages sleekier, rubberier, and squeakier. This is a partial version of the update, not the full one. Now, here's the full skinny.
After a big mess with Bighorse's pics, I've managed to get what I think is a proper directory together. I've likely missed a pic or two, as there are 3 different versions of the pics in my files. A couple of his pics were also added, and more are expected to come soon.
Added David Steele's morphy et al. pics and his directory. This is something I meant to do months ago, but never got around to it.
Added Donovan_Roo's directory. He's pretty new around here, but I like his work.
Added Roxikat's directory. This is something I've wanted to do for a while, but I never went and got the permission for it.
Added a couple of things to the story index.
Fixed the News Page, which was starting to look very dusty.
Some of the index subpages for the artists have been fixed. Eventually, all of them will be in a semi-new format.
Things not done:
Some of the pages aren't fixed, most notable the Furry Inflation Grab Bag, which I have received some new ideas for.
The non-graphical interface isn't fixed yet.
There are still a few more pics to update. We're getting to them as we can.
08/27/98: Updated info on the Fursize list. Planning to move that mailing list to a new server this weekend. This will fix all the subscription and other problems from the old list. This will help a lot.
08/23/98: Hell is over. School is starting. Whee. Here comes the update. Adding (some of) Stellos's pics, Johnny's pics, Moment's pics (including an amusing Bosom of Doom pic), Big Horse's pics, David Steele's pics?, Roy's floatdrg and the color version of rubdrgn, Bill Bryan's Expandranon pic, Doug Winger's dogtreat, and a story by Skipp. And a partidge in a pear tree. Moved the links page off this page and added a few to it. Added a few ideas to the Grab Bag, Soon to update the Fursize info (which needs it badly). It is extremely likely I missed something. If so, just give me a tap on the shoulder, and I'll fix it. Life's been a bit of a mess lately.
08/12/98: After almost a month of RL hassles having to do with trying to put together a paper for publication (no, nothing related to inflation ;) ), I'm just about ready to get back to VR and an update. If you were wondering what happened. Please stop bugging me about when the next update will be and/or requesting pictures. A handful of pics are sent to the fursize list by the artists; as for others, when I get to the update, I'll get to the update. Those who have sent pics to me: I have them, they're waiting.
07/17/98: I'm moving these pages to macrophile.com. Adding Bucky-Boy's artwork.
07/12/98: I'm back in the saddle again. I'm in the middle of an update. Be patient. Updated information on the fursize list and noted the bugs we know, as well as additional info about another macrophilic-related mailing list not run from here. Added the Furry Inflation Grab Bag for ideas for pics and stories. Fixing all the pages to include the updates (give me time). Adding pictures: pandsk, loksiy01, morphee, exp3...trying to get permission for a couple more. If I've missed any inflation-related pics, please notify me. I may be forgetting something.
06/28/98: Bugs are being worked out on the mailing list. Adding links to newest pics, fizysnap and inflatef. All I will say is this: Cerine looks very demonic, it's not quite what it seems. ;) I know I haven't updated the pages themselves in a while, but I'm leaving today for two weeks. Talk to me on the list, or email Cerine. Adios.
06/25/98: Today I am adding a free mailing list dedicated to furries and size play. Look at this page for information and details.
06/22/98: Rafferty's logo added and small changes added to the front page. Roy's tiria pic updated. Added link to amusing article? Updated news (rant) page. I may not have the text-only pic page fixed. It will be done eventually.
06/01/98: Moment's mousie pic added. Added Axecat's story, as well as his pictures, nalafun, xydaxe1, and xydexxC. Important notice added. Please take a look at it.
05/30/98: Axecat's pages fixed. Thumbnail on text-only picture page reduced. If you have any other requests, ideas, or comments, leave them on the comments page or e-mail the staff.
05/28/98: Should be almost done. Thumbnails should be fixed and nice and neat and stuff. Have a handful more things to add, but for the most part, things are done. Readded the Furry Inflation FAQ. Approaching 2500 hits! Keep up the good work!
05/26/98: Still going on the updating. I see that my original method of creating the thumbnails isn't going to work. It's going to take me time to fix that. (So much for auto-creating the thumbnails.) Fixed problems concerning the non-inflation pages on this server. Proudly added Rogue's story.
05/24/98: Created version 2.0 of Furry Inflation Pages. Added contact list. Added pictures by Flinthoof, Chris Sawyer, and bubskunk (updated), buybewr, cheripop, and popdrgn1 by Roy. I've tried to make these pages as streamlined and HTML-compliant as possible. If you can't read tables, I'm sorry.
5/22/98: Beginning an overhaul of the Furry Inflation Pages. There's going to be a lot of construction here over the next few weeks. Added the contact page. If you want to be added to it, email Cerine..
10/10/98: I know, I've been out of action for a while. There are many reasons for this, which make the comment below a little obsolete. I have had a bit of material to update for a little while, but I've had no time to update. However, I have a friend who is helping me to update and revise these pages so they're nice and spiffy. As such, updates should be a bit more regular.
06/22/98: Hi. Small notes to be added: Thank you for the compliments about the page. However, in general, I update when I have material to update. I have had almost no material to add as of late. In addition to a few personal problems, this has meant updates have been a little less frequent than they used to be. I received a comment to the extent of "I check the site daily for updates." While I compliment your diligence, the date in the upper right corner of the index page should be correct as for when I've last updated. In general, you should only have to check every week or so. :)
Pictures are being slowly added to the archives as I get them. Please don't ask me when there will be more pictures. The only control I have over art production is in the generation of ideas as incentive for artists to use. (This is the main reason I created the Furry Inflation Grab Bag. If you have ideas for inflatable artwork, send them to in so I can put them there, please.) I issue a few commissions every so often, but for the most part, this page only exists because of the kindness of others, especially the artists. Also, if any artists want ideas, feel free to ask me for them. :) The same goes for stories and their authors.
This page created by Cerine, herself with a balloon form that has seen some use (and has a few noted pics in the archives). :) If you have suggestions, complaints, problems about this page's load time (mind you, this is *not* something Cerine can see), etc., mail her.
Things to know about Cerine: I am a college student. Oftentimes I am very busy or preoccupied, even on FurryMuck. Feel free to say hi to me there, of course; just please note that you know me from these pages. I am not an artist. I am a writer; however, see before about time problems. I may write something inflation-related soon, if I can put my mind to it. Don't count on anything. I run this page because a) I have bandwidth, b) I happen to like the subject, c) people seem to like me for it, and d) as far as I know, no one's complained to admin-types about these pages. If any of these change, the future of this page will be in jeopardy. I don't think they'll change.
