The art of Kevin J. Weir, who enjoys bears, space, and GIFs
April 4, 2012 7:56 PM   Subscribe

Kevin J. Weir is an artist, making ads (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and more interestingly, not ads. In the latter category, he has made 3 stand-alone sites: the Flux Machine, a tumblr of public domain images turned into animated GIFs, ranging from amusing to surreal (with an extra dash of Lovecraft), which Cartoon Brew likened to Terry Gilliam and Stan VanDerBeek; Nyan Waits, another spin-off of the Nyan Cat meme/theme, now with more Tom Waits; and Loud Portraits, an interactive portrait gallery.

Kevin also has three pages of other not-ad things: illustrations, which are just some of his sketches; Gifotography, turning two photos from his multi-angle camera into one animated GIF; and Talentsaurus Rex, two promotional videos for the talent show at his school, VCU Brandcenter.

If that wasn't enough, there's also his personal tumblr, Silly Hats Only, which is a collection of GIFs and art he likes.

Tom Waits can do no wrong, therefore this is all kinds of good stuff.
