I run an art blog where I post mostly abstract animated gifs.

There are too many to post them all, but here are some of my personal favorites:

I hope you enjoy them!

Pretty sweet!


(you should consider using the APNG format, though. GIF and its 256-color limit doesn't do it justice)

Thanks!

Technical limitations are definitely a big issue with this medium. GIF is both the format that I'm most familiar with and is most accessible, so I tend to prefer working with it despite its color limitations and bloated file sizes. APNG and other formats would definitely present these animations better, but they're rarely supported and much harder to distribute.

Until the GIF format gets phased out, I'm going to continue working with it. I'll take the issues that go with it as a challenge!

I can't look at them for more than about 5 seconds, without my eyes fucking up.
They look pretty nice too, keep on doing it. What software are you using?

Yeah, I understand that my gifs can be pretty straining on the eyes. I make sure to tag each one with an epilepsy warning just in case.

I'm glad you like them, though! Everything on there has been made with Photoshop, but I'm looking into working with Processing in the future.

Is it possible to make GIFs in GIMP 2? Oops I didn't see the link to your tumblr page

Also, I saw your other ones at Jul, the old ones. Why not share those ones with us also? Would be nice :) especially as I'm now banned there due to threatening to kill some impersonator going around (like the one here)
