The holiday season may be over, but there’s always a healthy contingent of people who are still sending their gifts out through the month of January. Count us amongst that group. Last year around this time, Michael Anthony Farley took the opportunity to revisit GIF Wrapping, a project that invites digital artists to play secret santa with each other using GIFs. The project is “unboxed” Christmas even. Farley liked the project so much he requested it be taken up once more in 2016. netartnet.net, (Anthony Antonellis), and 85 other participating artists took him up on the request. What a boon! The website is a treasure trove of amazing Santa rifs, news themed sentiments, and abstractions using holiday color palettes. Merry Christmas to me!
