Yule Log 2.014: A Yule Log for the Digital Age

Each year, I look for­ward to the holiday-specific projects that put a unique spin on the clas­sics, like Yule Log 2.014. Now in its sec­ond sea­son, this series of short films are cre­ated by illus­tra­tors, ani­ma­tors, direc­tors, and coders to bring the tra­di­tional Yule Log into the dig­i­tal age. There are a ton of them that […]

8-Bit Gifs by Dusan Cezek Capture Iconic Movie Moments

Fact: My twin brother is cur­rently purs­ing his PhD and study­ing film. In prepa­ra­tion for an exam he had to take in his 2nd year, he watched 72 films. 72! And while he has watched many, many films, I am the oppo­site. I’ve seen very few movies, and maybe half of those fea­tured in artist Dusan Cezek’s […]

Move Mountain, a Short Film by Kristen Lepore

Do you have about 11 min­utes today? Sure you do! So, use your time wisely and check out Kris­ten Lepore’s new ani­mated short, Move Moun­tain. You might remem­ber her work, Bot­tle, which was widely pop­u­lar a few years ago. This, like its pre­de­ces­sor, does not dis­ap­point. Delight­ful yet sophis­ti­cated. PS: If you have scardy cats […]

GIFs, GIFs, GIFys

TOP: mr. div BOTTOM: Romain Lau­rent Who doesn’t like a good GIFs? Seri­ously. They are the love lan­guage of the web, immor­tal­iz­ing moments in time so we can revisit them for­ever. Guadalupe Cor­doba cre­ated the site umbu.com, which doesn’t sound like it’s a site ded­i­cated to GIFs (umbu is actu­ally the name of a fruit), […]

Julian Glander’s Animated GIFs Featuring Glamourous Sandwiches

I don’t know about you, but boy, did it snow in Bal­ti­more! Schools and busi­nesses were closed and I didn’t leave my apart­ment for over 24 hours. Julian Glander’s ani­mated GIF of a sand­wich snow­board­ing down a moun­tain feels oddly appro­pri­ate right now. The snow­board­ing sand­wich GIF isn’t the only sub-related ani­ma­tion that Julian has in […]

The Surreal Fashion GIFs of Tara Dougans

These ani­mated GIFs by Tara Dougans are a lit­tle crazy, a lit­tle weird, but very cool. They com­bine draw­ing, ani­mat­ing, and are a nod to fash­ion illus­tra­tion. Some are sub­tle, like the long-necked mod­els del­i­cate tears. Oth­ers are dizzy­ing, like the images directly above and below. I’m mes­mer­ized. All images via her web­site. Fol­low her on Tum­blr, too!

Shugo Tokumaru » Katachi

Happy Mon­day, ya’ll! And how about those Ravens, huh? I wanted to extend a huge THANKS to you for your patience over this past week. I had some irri­tat­ing tech­ni­cal issues to deal with (and am still deal­ing with), but I am grate­ful for your read­er­ship. So, how about some­thing jubi­lant for the start of the […]
