I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

Flight is my first comic ever - a comic about the reality of being far apart from people you love- that you spend a lot of time by yourself. And you can be happy, and enjoy life, but there are still tiny moments that catch you by surprise, where you are overcome by how much you miss them.
Every part of Flight was done by hand, all of the illustrations and lettering were hand painted with winsor newton ink & watercolours and then added digitally.
If you’d like to buy yourself a copy or send one to your loved one, they’re for sale on my Etsy ♡
Angelina this is so beautiful! I relate so hard to that gust of lonely that sweeps over from time to time. Beautiful, beautiful stuff <3
I’ve had the great fortune of being an artist on Disney’s Gravity Falls for the past few years but Monday night marks by debut as a director. It’s been a joy and an honor to work with this magnificent crew and I hope fans will enjoy our hard work.
Tune in at 9:30!
Matt’s da bessstttt! follow him!
Every artist has those days where they compare themselves to others and it just feels like an uphill battle that never ends. That’s ok! Checking out how other people do things is a cool way to learn some new tricks, but what’s NOT great is listening to that voice saying “What’s the point of me even trying? That person can do everything way better.”
There’s always gonna be someone better than you, technically, but no one in the world will ever be YOU. You, with your specific thoughts and emotions. Those are the things that will make your art great. Your choices and tastes are what’s going to make your work different from other peoples, just like their tastes make theirs stand out as well.
Don’t worry about “developing a style”. Draw in LOTS of styles. I try to do this, but I’m still pretty stuck in my artistic comfort zones a lot of the time.
It is tough staying positive sometimes! But you gotta remember that you are you, your voice is unique, and there is room for EVERYONE in the art world. Every skill level, every level of dedication to the die-hard draw-every-dayers to the once-in-a-while-doodlers. Everyone’s art is unique and interesting and worth making.
I’ll never be the best technical artist in the world, but maybe I could be an artist who makes someone barf from laughing too hard someday. Goals, man
Hey Tumblr! I’m Alex Hirsch, creator of the animated TV series Gravity Falls. For ages now I have lurked in anonymity, hiding in the shadows of the internet, watching as you’ve GIF’ed our shows jokes and shipped our shows characters and done unspeakable things to my dear Pines Twins. You…you’ve got some issues Tumblr. We’re all worried about you.
Pressing on! I have decided to finally emerge from beyond the fourth wall to share with you that I myself have a shameful secret. That secret is that despite my success as a cartoon show creator, I can barely hold a pencil. My understanding of the word “anatomy” just means adding abs to everything. I once mistook a kneaded eraser for a piece of gum and chewed on it until someone told me to stop. The point is, without a team of incredible layout artists, background painters, character designers, prop designers, storyboard artists and colorists, Gravity Falls would look like this:
Thats why I’ve created Gravi-Team falls, a place where we will be uploading artwork, cut scenes, and other strange goodies from the amazing crew that brings this show to life. I’m inspired every day by these amazing geniuses, and now I want to pass that inspiration on to you. If you like Gravity Falls, amazing art, and procrastinating, than this is the Tumblr you’ve been Tumbling for! Ladies and Gentlemen…GRAVI-TEAM FALLS!
