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.

Wonderful!

Agnes Moorehead as Endora from the classic television series, Bewitched - Via

When I was a little kid, I wanted to be her when I grew up to be an older lady. :)

This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.

It was a #TechnicolorDay here in #SanFrancisco yesterday. #GoldenGatePark’s trees were ablaze with blooms, and everyone was out in the 70 degree + weather. #DiaryoftheDay

Siobhan Bohnacker on the photographer Lucas Samaras’s arresting self-portrait “Ultra-Large (Hands)”: http://nyr.kr/1mJ6opQ

“The simplicity of the image stands in opposition to the chaos of much of Samaras’s other work, yet his enormous hands, with their vivid color and loose, dramatic configuration, resemble a nebula glowing in a night sky.”


Beautiful color.
