ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: DAIN FAGERHOLM
How did you first get into making GIFs? What was the first GIF you made?
I first got into making GIFs in 2012 when I saw all the cool GIFs on Tumblr. I made a few GIFs of Yolandi-Vi$$er shaking her booty in gold hotpants and a few from Disney’s Snow White and Fantasia but I really wanted to make GIFs that were 100% my own. The first original GIF I made was called “Creature with Amethyst Gem” and it was part of a series of GIFs which I called “stereographic drawings”.
Where do you find inspiration?
I am looking for inspiration right now in a book about Netsuke (carved Chinese ornaments). Taoist landscape paintings, and female bodybuilders also inspire me.
Why GIF art?
GIF art has been a way for me, as an artist, to reach a wider audience. It also satisfies a lot of social needs because I meet lots of people online who have seen my GIFs and I enjoy that.
Who are some of your favorite artists?
Most of the artists I have met on Tumblr are my favorite artists:

smsingh asked: I love your artwork, I've been extremely fascinated by the wiggle-gram concept of 2d objects without having to take 2 images (it's always a hassle to do that). One artist to another, could you briefly explain how you worked out the displacement maps on Photoshop to get the 3d wiggle gram effects? Thanks!
Hello! Thanks! Check out this link I posted awhile ago on my blog. You’re mind will be sucked up into a vortex of AWESOME as you try to decipher this tutorial. Actually this tutorial could be better but that is all i have right now.
Thanks for your question.
