It’s unclear how Adam Ferriss spends his time, but it doesn’t appear to be by doing anything other than making GIFS. In May, he produced over 65 GIFs. Production seems to have slowed now that it’s summer time, but we expect to see more once vacation is done.
The above GIF obviously owes something to Laura Brothers. Yoshi Sodeoka too is clearly a contemporary. A look at this and some of the other GIFs on his site also tells me Ferriss isn’t overly interested in animation that’s too jerky or abrupt. He does, though occasionally engage it.
