Christmas of the future… in 2017

 

I had originally intended to post this GIF over the Xmas holidays, but sort of forgot to *sheepish grin*, but I thought just post it now. It’s a festive GIF with a difference. I deliberately steered clear of actual Christmassy imagery and opted for a 1990s-meets-vaporwave look. A revolving mottled gem, draped in aethereal camouflage spins in a void of shimmering purples and azure. A masterpiece, I think personally.

New Year’s Day 2018 – 2

 

A GIF I made from a cool website that allows you to enter your name into a premade greetings web page, where it is magically transformed into colour-shifting 3D letters. A little New Year’s gift GIF from me to you, dear reader.

Gifville mentioned on Reddit

 

This actually happened last year, but now I got round to mentioning it. One of our GIFs/tags got a namecheck of sorts on community website Reddit. In the post titled “Cloud factory switches to balloon production” on the Gifs Reddit, a user linked to Gifville in discussing the image, which depicted blue balloons rising out of a chimney stack. I originally featured the GIF, by Val, on Where there is smoke…there is…balloons? (October 2015).

You can see the Reddit post, with quite a few chirpy little comments here!

Running after that elusive prize

 

On one hand, it’s a cat chasing after a dancing cartoon milk carton, on the other hand, this GIF symbolises us chasing after what keeps us alive, sustained and which fuels our thirst. We spend all our lives perpetually pursing things, dreams, ambitions. An artwork by myself.
