It's National WHAT Day?

Did you know that April 14th was National High As You Can Reach Day? I can't believe I forgot, but hopefully I accidentally celebrated by reaching up at some point. I'll never miss an obscure holiday again now that I follow National What Day, a recently formed blog with a catchy idea. Last month, Thoka Maer moved from Berlin to New York and dove straight into appreciating American culture by doing something special for all of the national appreciation days. She posts almost-daily animated pencil drawings relevant to which National _____ Day it is. Whether it's pennies, pencils, or specific foods—I'm excited to see Maer's daily reminders to celebrate the little things!

Animated GIFs Drawn with Pencil

Miranda Pfeiffer recently dropped me a line about her drawings and animated GIFs made with mechanical pencil. I like how she renders normal objects found in real life, but then adds a bit of quirkiness when going into her hand-drawn animations.

She really gets the process too, I love this description by her, "Because they are brief and only have a visual component, when a GIF is powerful, it’s done with economy and intelligence."

Wonderfully Charming Drawn GIFs

I've had this in my bookmarks to share for a while, and I truly regret not posting about it earlier. It's a beautiful collection of animated GIFs made with the soft lines from colored pencils. The clips themselves are these fantastically awkward loops of people doing common things. Check out the Tumblr site, I guarantee you'll fall for this project by Thoka Maer.

Ryan Todd has put together a cheery collection of animated GIFs for the holiday season. The complete showcase features submissions by illustrators, animators, and directors everywhere, and can be found online at

If you know a thing or two about looping frames and have a love for the ho-ho-holidays, lucky for you, he's taking submissions, but he warns it better be good ;)
