Looking a gif horse in the …

sniffin and gibberin

Continuing the theme of a previous post, in late 2005/2006 I began to play with myself … in Photoshop using animated gifs. I used obscure Japanese toys and my own face as subjects most of the time because very little else in the world around me was as outlandish or as willing to be made to look so.

I experimented in the hopes of using the animated gif to make little movies – but only because I had no idea how cumbersome and limited the medium was. Ah, ignorance: yet, without it, how would we learn?

Once I realized the medium’s shortcomings, most of the gifs I was working on were abandoned. For a while there, I did use a lot of simple animations for “dynamic” buttons on websites but was disabused of that notion pretty quickly.

And yet, a hard drive can be a very deep thing: a number of the more fanciful creations from that time remain extant; lying quietly in a dark, back corner of the drive under a still pile of bits and bytes. Recent excavations revealed them and now YOU get to SEE them! (do try to contain yourself)

Most of these require no explanation as there is none, they are simple expressions of the bizarre and dippy ideas that trip through my skull. Two – the bald heads below – were meant to be different phases of a singular image, each triggered by a hovering cursor. Put your arrow over the images link and the eyes in the head at the top of the page begin to twitch back and forth. Hover over the link to writings and the jaw begins working – oh, how droll! Now you know why I never used them …

    Hi,

    I’ve found your two gifs in the web. They’re very funny and I’d like to use one of them (or bith) as my avatar for non-commercial purpose on hardcore punk forum. Can I do that? The most probably, sooner or later I’ll create my own animated avatar. At the moment they are in accordance with a nature of a main, very funny topic. Unfortunately the forum is in Polish 🙂

    The gifs are:

    Kind regards,
