Hand Drawn Animated Gifs by Dain Fagerholm

Do you remember Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg who creatively used animated GIFs to create so-called cinemagraphs?

Of course, stereographic images existed for hundreds of years and it isn’t something completely new. However, it’s unusual to see this technique used for hand drawn illustrations.

Technique is one thing, but what really catches my attention is the cuteness of Dain’s illustrations. It seems that childhood book illustrations have suddenly come to life.

    John Nguyen I completely agree with you! Actually, we exceeded our traffic limit by three times this month. I’m both happy and sad about this. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! I’ve already ordered 2 more servers. Our site should be much faster next month. Sorry for inconveniences..
