That’s not your brain playing tricks on you. These crafty hand drawn .gif’s were created by Dain Fagerholm aka DAiN 8. Residing in the city of Seattle, Washington, Dain uses ink pens and colour dye markers to develop what he calls ‘stereographic .gifs‘. Fagerholm describes his work as “an exploration into themes of trauma, fantasy, disassocaation and personal transformation”. These trippy drawings have been in creation since February of 2012 and you can find most of them posted on his tumblr. To check out more of his work click below.
For all you non internet nerds, .gif stands for graphics interchange format. Which is basically an image that supports animations and allows a separate palette of up to 256 colors for each frame. And yes, I totally Googled that.
