As any pet owner knows, every animal has its own distinct personality, much like humans do.

Artist Chris Beetow set out to capture these unique character traits — their true selves — in his latest portrait series.

Beetow explains,

My goal is to capture the ‘inner’ pet in addition to their likeness. Instead of just focusing on what the critter looks like, I try to capture who they are — their quirks, their habits, and the side of them that only the owner sees.

Before starting on his paintings, Beetow asks the owners to describe the animal so he can get a sense of its personality.

Using that information, he then paints cartoon-esque portraits of the pet accompanied by visual signals meant to convey a sense of the animal’s personality.

The portraits are freakin’ adorable, and I’d imagine they’re incredibly meaningful for the pet owners.

An animal’s personality is what makes it so lovable, so to be able to capture its quirks is truly special and thoughtful.

This would make a wonderful gift for an animal lover this holiday season. Scroll below to see some examples of Beestow’s past work, and visit his website for for information if you’re interested in commissioning a portrait of ol’ Fido for yourself.
