Do you remember Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg who creatively used animated GIFs to create so-called cinemagraphs?
Seattle-based illustrator Dain Fagerholm also adopted animated GIF technology to make his hand drawn monsters come to life. However, this time GIFs were used to create a cool 3-D effect. It was achieved by rapidly changing a couple of images with slightly shifted perspectives.
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.
