Joshua Slice, an animator who has worked on films such as Big Hero 6, Ferdinand, and Zootopia, is the man behind this adorable hairy, multi-eyed jumping spider named Lucas. This side project of Joshua’s has turned into an internet sensation! It’s so cute!!

“I’m responsible for the design, modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering,” Joshua wrote. He combines live action with a 3D animated spider named Lucas, voiced by his nephew, also named Lucas. All of these are pretty short, some only 20 or 30 seconds long, so take 5 minutes to watch them all!
