Welcome to the world of 23 year old german illustrator Martin Cole where Gifs are king, Ironic humor is a must, and bizarre web references reign supreme.
There’s no question that GIFs have had a long history on the Internet. We’ve been accidentally stumbling upon them for as long as we can remember. Usually, when we think of GIFs we usually don’t take it too seriously. Besides… the majority of them out there almost always include blinged-out text paired with unsightly some imagery. However, with the extreme popularity of Tumblr, GIF art has become the new and popular medium. Calgary, Canada’s Rick Silva’s has put his personal creativity into this art form; making sure to incorporate a balance between real-life landscape imagery and digital web geometry.
I’m a big fan of Gif animations in general but Tamar Levine has stepped it up with her cinemagraphs series fusing fashion photography with subtle and classy animations. Usually gif animations are going a mile a minute but by slowing down the animation Tamar has created a unique and powerful way of using our favorite photoshop trick.
It’s midnight, I can’t sleep, and the moon seems to be wiggling and moving in space. Hope it doesn’t fall down from the sky.
We all look the same inside.
