Dain Fagerholm‘s GIF illustrations are hand drawn pictures that he calls ‘stereographic drawings’. To create his Maurice Sendak inspired 3D illustrations Fagerholm first sketches the monsters and surreal landscapes with markers and pens. The drawings are then converted into stereographic GIF’s which give his 2D images the quality of a 3D moving image.
They’re incredibly jarring on the eyes but are utterly beguiling and wonderfully retro in their style after all GIFs are so 90’s and are now mostly used for internet memes and immortalizing famous film moments. But these are genius. Simple, alot of fun and if you’re a kid perhaps a little bit scary. Fagerholm has a whole portfolio of these 3D monsters which are well worth checking out.
