Veronica Belmont on being overtaken by a meme

animation (1)

A long time ago, Veronica Belmont was featured in a blooper reel for her old TV show in which she clowned around with a Cthulhu t-shirt, wiggling back and forth and saying "So lifelike." A creepy Internet person turned the moment into a GIF that has followed her around ever since, so that other creepy Internet people post it every time she opens her mouth online, and creepy Internet porn companies use it in their ads.

The GIF art of Jamaican visual artist Di-Andre Caprice Davis


Di-Andre Caprice Davis is an artist from Kingston, Jamaica who creates some really wonderful animated GIF art.

In my work, I combined a passion for digital aesthetic with furthering the exposure and understanding of how technology has affected our world. Although the images are highly personal representations of my dreams, they are abstract enough and open enough to allow individual interpretation. I have used animation techniques to show the power of artistic image manipulation; turning still images into hypnotic GIF art. I prefer to collage and compose several looping actions emphasizing the motions that mimic bodily rhythm. It is like an adventure in a second life exploring its outer limits with digital imaging tools.

Creepy and demonic paper cutout GIFs of Bran Muir


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.
