Tom Moody has complained that there’s not enough analysis in our GIF of the Day posts. He thinks the Anthony Antonellis GIF I posted a few days back lacks compelling movement and content. I stand by the pick. The image isn’t supposed to have any deep meaning—it’s supposed to look like spamm, and it succeeds—but Moody brings up a fair point. Why bother posting all these images if we don’t look at them critically?
We’re going to change that. Once every three weeks or so we’ll take a look back on the GIFs we’ve posted and talk about what we think succeeds and what we think falls flat. Tom Moody’s Sketch_J3 is now on that list.
