The Longest-Running Everyday GIF Artist on Tumblr Just Broke 4 Years
Angular Geometry’s mesmerizing loops have been a GIF art staple for nearly half a decade.

Angular Geometry (@angulargeometry) is so great! 

After we told him Tumblr’s data confirms he’s the longest-running everyday GIF artist, he said, “I have no idea how to word what I am feeling to be honest. I am really moved.

Awww. And as if his GIFs themselves weren’t inspiring enough…

His advice to artists on their own everyday creative journey is, "Don’t worry so much. So much greatness is ruined by anxiety. Some days will turn out like garbage, some days you will be magically inspired and you will make something you are extremely happy with. The great thing is that the days just keep coming.”

It’s been a beautiful four years, Tyler. Here’s to four more.

Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [pi-slices]

Tyler Haywood aka angulargeometry currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He has been obsessed with creating art since he took a clay sculpture class when he was four years old. Tyler likes to make as much work as he can instead of filtering ideas and cornering himself in. Tyler began a weekly blog where he posted mainly still images and poster designs, but after being inspired by Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple’s daily work, he began creating and posting his work daily. He has been creating daily GIFs more more than 430 days and shows no signs of slowing down.

Variations in Post-Processing on a Simple Wireframe

So earlier tonight, I saw a GIF named “I See You” by Angular Geometry, and it inspired me a bit. I thought “Oh, hey, I like that post-processing! I’ll bet I could pull off something like that in a really simple setup I’m imagining right now!” - but the more I got in and played with it, the less it looked like what had inspired it, and more like… well, more like 5 other completely different things - but each one was cool, so I thought I would post them all! :D

If you would like to play with applying some post-processing to this animation, the last image in this set is exactly what I had to start with, so you’re welcome to pull that down and play with it yourself. I’d love to see what anyone else out there would do with this!

Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [pi-slices]

I am Philip. I am based a little while out of Vancouver, Canada. pi-slices is the GIF-a-day project I started in April after being inspired by a whole slew of Tumblr artists, most notably Beeple and Angulargeometry. I started creating basic Cinema 4D animations in late 2012 but decided to seriously pick up the program this year. I have been posting my daily animations for more than 100 days now and don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Many of my animations are tests of features I haven’t tried yet or ideas that pop up in my head throughout the day. I am inspired by simple geometric shapes, optical illusions and minimalism.
