It's amazing to see GIF images still popular. When I started my design career, or even before that back in the 90s, GIFs were the only way we could see animation on the web. It ended up losing space to Flash with its vector animations but, incredibly, GIFs made a come back and now are super popular. It's almost the core of memes. Of course artists and designers take it to the next level making beautiful animations and loops. Nancy Liang created a super stylish set of illustrations and animations with a nice retro feel. Nancy Liang is an illustrator and animator with a beautiful portfolio. We recommend that you check it out at http://cargocollective.com/nliang I am a Sydney-based artist and illustrator who focuses on tales of urban landscapes, city streets and the often forgotten places of suburbia. I represent these subject matters using drawing and kraft paper cutouts arranged in the visual form of a diorama. My practice also extends off the page from print to animation, where I enjoy creating animated scenes and looping GIFs in my spare time on my blog 'Over the Moon'. GIF Animation
Nina Geometrieva is a designer that focus into Graphic Design, Illustration and Branding. On her recent trip to Japan, she worked on a collaboration with Damjan Cvetkov Dimitrov on taking really stunning pictures/GIFs. Simply creative, give it a look! What sets Tokyo and Japan apart from the entire world was of course the attention to detail and detail within detail. The greasiest, darkest and most marginal street corners were impeccably clean. Not always the tidiest things but they worked and everything served it’s own purpose. If you stepped into the right street corner, you could see where Motoko Kusanagi from the anime Ghost in the Shell would run through, chasing another cyberized perpetrator.

I really enjoy those big pixel art prints featuring huge cities with all sort of things happening all around... but sometimes less is more, and these pixel art gifs are just terrific! These were done by Slovakian designer Dusan Cezek and they show what a big geek he is. From classic comics to beloved sci-fi flicks, these are just amazing! For more of his Gifs, please visit his portfolio at Behance! Cheers. ;) Wolverine The Big Lebowski Sups and Wonderwoman Pulp Fiction Avengers Fight Club Hellboy Evil Dead II Spawn Fifth Element
Character design and simple animations together are a powerful way to create engaging and delightful experiences for the viewer. A great example is the work that Mother Volcano and AIM | Animation for Mixedmedia put together for a commissioned work to Sony. The vector style and quirky animations are not only beautiful but carry so much personality. They definitely deserve to be shared here on Abduzeedo.

As you've probably noticed, we are big fans of Daft Punk. We've have posted about them quite a few times and of course aren't the only ones obsessed. There are a lot of people out there creating some amazing artwork inspired by the electronic music duo. Enter Gerrel Saunders who put together some incredible GIF's featuring helmets of the French musicians. Gerrel Saunders, also known as Gaks, is a multi-disciplinary graphic designer and illustrator hailing from the twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. He's also a self-proclaimed Master Vector Ninja...just saying. Decided to try my hand at some Daft Punk Fan-art. Enjoy!!!
The cinemagraph is one of the most awesome category of GIFs. The idea of perpetuating a single moment of your favorite character or movie is definitely worth the time spent to do these. From Alien to Napoleon Dynamite, these cinemagraphs are some fine examples of GIF fine-art. If it was possible, I would hang many of these in my wall... like a fine picture of Roy Batty, in the rain, as he dies. Man, pure poetry there. These are only a handful. For more, visit Cinemagraphcollection.com, because they got tons of other pieces there. Cheers! ;)
Stop everything you're doing, because you can't continue with your head blown. That's right, because this is one of the freshest things you'll see around the web these days. For any of the gamers out there who've been in love with fighting games for a long time, this is for you! Redditor RudeBootie has made an album consisting in 125 fighting game backgrounds as GIFs. That's right... remember all the arenas where you defeated your foes in the past? Well, they're back in a glorious way. In my opinion these below are some of the best you'll find in the collection, but don't be mistaken: they're all great! Check it out. Cheers! ;)

I really enjoy when visual artists push the envelope into their work, here's a great example of mixing beautiful photography with a little animation. Jamie Berg and Kevin Burg are two New York based photographer and visual designer, they both have created something new here.
