I could not attend the online Google hangout the other day for Networked Narratives, which featured guests Amy Burvall and Michael Branson Smith on the art of the animated gif, and the possibility for expression with the social media photo formatting. My friend, Wendy, suggested on Twitter that we make gifs from the hangout video, and well, that sounded like a fine idea.
I did all of this within Giphy itself, which has stickers (which I keep forgetting about) and a drawing tool (ditto).
Here is the original video:
And then I went a little nutty. First, I found a neat shot of the Alan, Amy and Michael, and added … a few special guests to the hangout.
Then, I grabbed video of a gif art project and made it further into art with some gif doodling.
Peace (animated within reason),
