L’animorphe was founded by coincidence. It came to me because of my dog. The love I had for him was the biggest love I have ever known and felt. In my previous existence as a graphic designer, I led a life full of demands and deadlines set by others, and I longed for a platform to experiment with what I wanted to create. My dog’s Facebook page #VentjeMcDoodle was my garden of joy. On those pages, I was the one who decided what the final result would be.
When I created his first portrait, exactly three years before he died, the portrait was spotted by someone in Germany, which started me on an insecure but very creative journey. With all of my heart I tried to catch the essence of the personality of a pet. Which is difficult when owners only provide brief descriptions. This was, of course, not the case with the portraits that are part of my free work. Inspired by my big hero Wes Anderson, I started to create personalities out of my pets. Sometimes they’re nice, and sometimes they’re evil, I combine the portraits with the real people I’ve met or studied in my personal life. –Tein Lucasson
