Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

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

The art of the subtle gif.

March 30th 1853: Van Gogh born

On this day in 1853, the artist Vincent van Gogh was born in Zundert in the Netherlands. The young van Gogh had a keen interest in art, and continued to draw and paint into adulthood. As an adult van Gogh traveled extensively throughout Europe, exploring the different art scenes and becoming especially affected by the French Impressionists. Despite his talent and distinctive art style, van Gogh was unappreciated in his lifetime. The struggling artist also suffered from mental health issues, infamously cutting off his ear and eventually shooting himself aged just 37. In his tragically short life van Gogh left an impressive selection of work, with over 2,000 pieces of art attributed to him. When he died, van Gogh was a little known name; today he is a household name, due to the rediscovery of his art and praise for its unique style, bold colours, and emotionality.

Happy 161st birthday Vincent van Gogh

Watch LeBron.  He’s walking the other way before Ray Allen even touches the ball, and is at half-court by the time it goes in.  That is ice cold.
