New York based Cari Vander Yacht is an illustrator and gif maker creating dynamic, fun and relevant images. Her work comprises color, texture, and funny faces – all wrapped up to produce amusing, story-driven animations. Working with a combination of illustration and photography, Cari creates animations that draw inspiration from her everyday life; from people on her block to quiet moments at home and the little jokes that pop up between.

Since 2009, Vander Yacht has displayed her work as part of solo and group shows in both her home state and in places as far-flung from Oregon as Lianzhou City, China.

SLIPPERY ANIMATIONS BY DAX NORMAN

Dax Norman is a contemporary artist who primarily works in painting and animation. Norman creates slippery, tripped-out characters and the psychedelic landscapes in which they reside, thrive and lose their minds. Rarely does he create a totally new piece from scratch; he prefers a symbiotic cycle, reappropriating his own work in a neverending pursuit of perfection. His paintings, GIFs and animations evoke heady hallucinogenic trips.

BLU releases a new DVD, we want it.

Posted from The Citrus Report

Perhaps better known as the Underdog King of the moment, Italian street artist Blu just released a new DVD of animations, time-lapses and others works, the first full collection of his video works every produced. There were two versions available, signed and unsigned, but because of the whole “Blu is very talented and popular and he was involved in the now infamous Deitch MOCA buffing,” those signed versions of the DVD are long, long gone.

But you still got the unsigned versions for your enjoyment…
