Most of us have our favorite web tools that we like to use on a regular basis – but even if we have developed some kind of a relationship with them, it can be hard to relate to them based simply on a logo.

Jon Lock is a digital artist that likes to draw “creepy and pretty” things, but in this case he has given a whole host of web services such as YouTube, Instagram, and DeviantArt, their own animated persona.

Each character has their own unique features that identify them for what they are – this ranges from the company logo, through to color schemes and accessories.
