Hypnogifs by Chris McDaniel

Chris McDaniel is a plumber at a hotel chain in Tampa Bay, Florida. But he’s also a talented GIF artist.

He recently partnered up with illustrators from online print store Society6 to animate some art pieces.

I’ve always loved the world of psychedelic art and how people would turn the original art into flashy gifs. I wanted to add to the world of it because I always saw the same things. I ran across some work that George Redhawk did and was fascinated by the motion art. It took me about a year to find out what it was called and how to did it. Once I found out the method, well, you can say the rest is history.

I have a lot of people asking to show them how I do it. But I can’t. If you’re truly passionate about motion art, then you’ll take the time that is required to learn your own style.

  1. Last quote is especially challenging – I find myself guilty of wanting better writers to show me “tricks of the trade” but it really is up to me to dig in and learn the craft.
