Drop me off in gif city

markportillo-2

While the talented members of certain communities such as Vimeo are producing and creating some wondrous and professional quality pieces thanks to the advent of affordable HD equipment and editing software, artist Mark Portillo goes a decidedly opposite direction. On his blog, “Drop Me Off in Harlem,” he shares his animated greyscale GIF sketches that simultaneously creep me out and chuckle, as well as evoke the days of floppy drives and surfing the rudimentary world wide web via modem.
