Logan Volkmann (aka Animal Shapes) is a biologist by day and a fantasy artist by night. He became active in the furry community in 2012 and took up drawing after attending several art jams with friends. He specializes in digital painting and is perhaps best known online for his colorful depictions of martens, otters, and other members of the weasel family.
Logan has been fascinated with wildlife since high school; his received his Bachelor of Science in biology in 2010 and went on to complete a Master’s degree in 2014. As of February 2020, he is in the final year of a PhD project examining the impacts of forest fires on North American martens. This work has involved countless hours of navigating through burned forests and interpreting marten behavior from radio collars and tracks in snow. Logan’s research has appeared in several peer-reviewed scientific journals, including Journal of Mammalogy and Forest Ecology and Management.
When not preoccupied with research or drawing, Logan enjoys hiking, playing board games, dungeoneering, and annoying the family cat. He lives in Kelowna, British Columbia, with his spouse, Apoxon (Jenn Volkmann).
As a child, Rick Griffin frequently played out elaborate stories with stuffed animals and became weird in the head due to it and associated traumas. Therefore he decided that when he grew up, he would tell stories for a living and also become a real live dragon, or perhaps a kangaroo. Naturally, everyone shook their head at the young boy’s naivete, since as adults they knew that it was impossible to write stories as one’s sole career. They calmly explained that maybe he should get a day job as well.
The whole “day job” thing didn’t pan out. Now as the artist and author of Housepets!, A&H Club, Pit Fighters, Traitors Thieves and Liars, and other stories and comics, he is ultimately responsible for instigating far more worlds than a sane individual should be allowed.
