Photographer Sebastian Magnani traveled all across Switzerland to meet with a number of cat lovers and capture the striking resemblance they share with their pets.
The series, which Sebastian dubbed “Undercats”, used Photoshop extensively to showcase a variety of anthropomorphic cats. Throughout Undercats, these furry pets are shown wearing everything from hats to motorcycling gear and even earrings.
To capture the similarities, Magnani would photograph portraits of the furry felines and their owners in the same pose. Once the perfect shots were taken, he would then splice together the head of the cat and body of the owner … Read more
These are no ordinary superheroes, nor are they ordinary dogs — they’re both! Illustrator Josh Lynch has created the series DOTMU: Dogs of the Marvel Universe on his Bēhance portfolio, and we can’t get enough.
Some of the amazing canines include a Thor golden retriever, a pug Captain America, a bulldog Hulk, and a chihuahua Iron Man.
From the captivating colors, to the intricate lines, these illustrations are impressive on many levels. Plus they’re superhero dogs, and what isn’t impressive about that? We can only hope that Lynch will be adding more to this series in the near future.

His photography series “Human Animals” captures portraits of dogs, owls and lizards showcasing human-like characteristics and emotions. The animals featured in Lagrange’s work display a range of emotions from suspicion to contemplation to excitement.
While most photographers capture their subjects in their natural element, Lagrange’s photos showcase a different side of animals rarely seen. His subjects aren’t hunting for their prey or sleeping atop a tree, but they are immersed in deep thought or taking a break from a tiring day.

She stages photos of Rufus exploring, flying, sunbathing, and even cleaning.

Last year we featured an adorable photo series titled Shake by photographer Carli Davidson. We became slightly obsessed with her unique portraits of dogs shaking themselves off post-bath. She expertly uses her high speed camera to capture her freeze-frame shots. Her signature photos are then each finished off with a colorful and vibrant background.
Davidson has now followed up on her original series with some new “shake” shots featuring some tiny, adorable puppies. She has aptly dubbed her newest subjects “furry anti-depressants“. Can’t seem to get your fill of her cute photos? They come in book form! … Read more
