Creepy and demonic paper cutout GIFs of Bran Muir

tumblr_nxiwr9VB9M1qb2rcfo1_500

Bran Muir's wonderful, chilling animated GIF work is highlighted in a post over at VICE's The Creators Project.

Muir's process starts like that of any collage artist as he cuts up old NatGeo and LIFE magazines to build a mutated army of characters. "The similarities with purist collage makers probably end when I port everything over to Photoshop, where the possibilities are endless," he tells The Creators Project. He works fast, spending between one and four hours animating the pieces into each GIF.
