Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
Beautiful gif art. <3
I look like:
Oh precious child! We all need a good cry at times.
I hate Blue Bloods, but I just squealed when I saw Jinkx Monsoon in the preview for tonight’s episode.
This is a lighthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan that sits ON Lake Michigan. My dad lives not too far away from it. I found this picture through a weather site this morning.
This is how cold it is here in IL/MI etc. Water splashed over it and apparently it turned to ice on contact. This is simultaneously gorgeous and frightening.
The Midwest is now Hoth.
This is so damn annoying. This photo is of the lighthouse in my hometown (St. Joseph, Michigan) and is from LAST winter and it is being passed around social media as if it happened this week. First, it is the far light… not the main light. When the main light is covered in ice that is impressive. Second, the lighthouse gets covered in ice every winter. That’s just what happens. We don’t need a polar vortex meander to have that happen. Also, the lake is fairly frozen right now… so no liquid water to splash on the lighthouse. Here is a photo taken by Jerry Joanis Photography on 1/7/14 - not nearly as impressive. No ice on the main light and less ice on the far light. It is, however, still gorgeous. As is the previous photo. Yes, it’s cold as hell and we’re up to our nipples in snow, but it literally happens every year.
Got some spare time? Make a comic!
Reasons for doing this?
1: My followers can finally have a printed comic by me.
2: It seemed like a fun activity to do, specially with young kids.
3: It might be cool if interweb folks shared tiny little mini comics with each other. And a whole bunch of people can print each other’s comics and maybe we could collect ones by other artists. So… ya know. Why not?
EDIT: AHH! Before I forget, I should mention that this mini comic format was created by the folks at http://www.pocketmod.com/ I came by their technique while listening to Fear the Boot, a roleplaying game podcast as they were interviewing Stuart Robertson an indie table top rpg designer.
If you’d like, support those folks cause they helped me discover this neat design.
EDIT2: Added tags. Dag nabbit.
