Jest artystą wizualnym, którego specjalnością są animacje GIF. Obecnie przebywa w Ameryce Południowej.
Od jak dawna robisz GIF-y?
Zacząłem mój Tumblr blisko dwa lata temu w kwietniu 2014 roku. Moje pierwsze animacje miały miejsce nieco później.
Czy wszystko wokół nas może być źródłem inspiracji i zaskakujących efektów?
Prowadzę ciągłe badania przedmiotów z życia
codziennego jako źródła inspiracji do mojej pracy. Interesuje mnie pomysł kojarzenia
ich z powtarzaniem, ponawianiem, recydywą, rutyną, cyklem, loop. Format pliku, jakim jest GIF, jest środowiskiem zarówno adekwatnym jak i ograniczonym, co zmusza mnie do przezwyciężania tych ograniczeń (głównie w
wymiarze pliku i ilości dostępnych kolorów). Ale jeszcze bardziej atrakcyjny wydaje mi się związek między osobami i tym, co robię.
Jakich narzędzi używasz do robienia GIF-ów?
używam ogólnie w mojej pracy to oprogramowanie Adobe AfterEffects do tworzenia animacji
i Photoshop do eksportowania końcowej animacji GIF.
Czy tworzysz też sztukę inną niż cyfrowa?
Na początku tego roku brałem udział w produkcji muzycznego klipu wideo (wideoprojekcja spektaklu tanecznego na żywo) z Mafaldą Millies i zawsze jestem otwarty na współpracę z artystami innych mediów.
Jakie blogi na Tumblrze poleciłbyś innym?
Blog, który chciałbym polecić w szczególny sposób, to praca mojej drogiej i utalentowanej koleżanki artystki @omg-patrycja-patrycja.
Hey Felix! I was curious as to what type of music you liked to listen to and who some of your favorite artist are?
Hello there! I have a very ecclectic musical taste, I do not stick to any particular genre. Some artists I like:

I’d like to start of this month’s statistics with a few additional stats about myself. I’m trying to post a new sonnet every week now (Monday evening seems like a good time) and of my last 8 sonnets, 7 have been featured. So thank you whoever was responsible for that.
My longest feature streak was 5 and the current is 2 (unless some editor decides to feature Locked Away which would combine them to a streak of 8).
I have recently reached 400 followers and I thank you all for your support. If you want to further support me, recommend me, reblog me, , follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook. You know, those places that are not as cool and friendly as tumblr. I really don’t seem to get any exposure there at all.
So without further ado and rambling, here are the stats for which you’ve come here in the first place. (I hope you stay for my poetry though.)
Total number of featured posts: 1465
The top 10 contributed 9.6% of all posts.
The top 25 contributed 19.9% of all posts.
The top 50 contributed 32.1% of all posts.
629 different contributors were featured.
Each contributor was featured 2.33 times on average.
266 contributors have been featured multiple times, 363 only once.
RIGHT. Life’s too short to hyperlink, but these are all amazing artists and cartoonists and illustrators and humans whose work I love to bits and who you should follow immediately right just now. I’ve probably left people out inadvertently but KNOW I LOVE YOU
Listening (once again) to one of my greater muses: A Beautiful Lie (30STM) while doodling in my bed lol
Thought of this UA…. HokageCampaignUA. So let’s say Sasuke didn’t want to kill all the kages, and still was running for Hokage. He needs to look like he is here to stay, so he needs a ‘loved one’. He can’t pick Sakura cause people would think it’s just the average ‘teammates fall in love’ aka boringggg. So he gets the innocent, helpful Hyuuga to be his faux-girlfriend since he can easily say that he is joining with one of Konaha’s strongest clans.
Its interesting enough, yet also something that can’t be questioned.
So its literally a game, yet as time goes on…The game seems harder to control. Comfortable distances now unbearably far… glances now intense studies.
I usually try to post something around 10:00pm. Then around 9:55pm I suffer a crisis of confidence and try one epigram/collage after another on tumblr preview and they all look like crap. Either the thought is stupid, or the lettering is sloppy or there is a lot of gunk on the scan I didn’t see to retouch before. Or the epigram is offensive in one of the infinite number of ways it is possible to offend nowadays. tumblr is sort of an instant medium, but the large majority of notes on my daily posts, which could be as few as 500 or over 5,000, are of pieces I’ve posted anywhere from a year to three years ago. So I’ve become inclined to leave them up for a while, even if they don’t get much love, just in case. There are almost 2,000 posts in the archive now, counting occasional reposts. It’s surprising how often I’ll see a single note on something from the wayback — no way to know if someone went all the way back or just happened to see it somehow. I’ve rarely commented on other tumblrs, but there are a few others with original content I totally worship. Just to name a couple, David Michael Chandler’s thedailydoodles.com tumblr and the incredible k-szk.tumblr.com, both utterly original and enviably productive. Okay, I’m procrastinating, here goes something from me… — Michael Lipsey
Goodnight everyone, and I believe I’m accurately quoting Joy on this, “It’s all about the hearts people." Of course you’re free to heart or not as you wish, it’s your blog, but as I heard from David in our early Tumblr days, "I enjoy supporting my friends." I totally agree! Truth is, if you’re a friend and I actually see your post, there’s a very good chance that you’ll get a heart. Sorry, you’ll just have to deal with it. Someone’s probably thinking, well that cheapens the value of your hearts. Last I checked they were free. As the Tumblr concept is only a friendly numbers game anyway, I’ll take 100 cheap ones thank you. In case that sounds like I’m casting disparaging comments in Tumblr’s direction, not at all. While it may be only a series of computer programs, within it resides a living beating heart, and that’s each and every one of you. Hearts are magic and hearts are love. Remember, "it’s all about the hearts people.” ‘Joy, can you beat that number yet?“, he inquires nervously.
dude I know I’ve been watching the word hipster change over the past year and the state of the word right now is really weird.
in the real world I think hipster means what it has meant- that whole aesthetic and attitude or whatever. but on tumblr hipster somehow equates to girls with long hair wearing vintage type floral prints and high waisted shorts?
but either way I think hipster, the word and the trend, is dying. and in it’s place is this SUPER cool (annoying) grunge trend, which for the record is not actually grunge like at all, but the same recycled hipster fashion from like two years ago but now with more bright colored hair and pastels and upsidedown crosses and nirvana tee shirts.
