Stillness speaks

GIF images have been around for a while. I have been told 25 years. And we have all seen the funny memes etc. But Gifs have been increasingly used by illustrators to add a dimension to their digital illustrations. I have recently started experimenting with this with my DP’s. And here are some of them. You need to click on the images to see the animation.


The thing with using animation in still images is you cannot do away with the stillness, both need to exist side by side.

Too much movement can take away from the stillness and that will wreck the image. So both movement need to be at play.


The idea for me is not to take away the charm of a still illustration. It’s more like to make the life in an image a little more stark.



I am the great pretender. Sometimes a pianist, sometimes a comic book artist.

    These express individual character, it’s poetic, it tries to speak to the potential of all people to live full, complex, imaginative life.. To give the voiceless a voice..
