Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea
Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea is the kind of book that lends itself to reimagination, perhaps because its story is so minimal that readers have to fill in the visual, philosophical, and even narrative details on their own. So it’s fascinating to watch Marcel Schindler’s stop-motion interpretation of the story, in which Hagen Reiling draws the novel’s entire plot, from beginning to end, in black ink on several sheets of paper. The effect is less like watching a movie than reading a picture book as it’s being created. The video was apparently made as a school assignment — and we sure hope Schindler got an “A.”

Caterpillar or birds?
Here’s a fantastic optical illusion courtesy of mother nature. What looks like a vibrantly colored caterpillar perched on a tree limb is actually photographer José Luis Rodríguez’schance encounter with nine extra cozy European Bee-eaters. The photographer named the image Oruga de Plumas, which translates roughly to “Caterpillar of Feathers”.

How to be a successful creative.
Well, when you put it that way.
There should be little as important to a successful creative than the very act of creating.
Beastly GIFs Combine Gary Baseman Aesthetic With 3-D Wow
Illustrator Dain Fagerholm uses animated GIFs to simulate 3-D images by quickly alternating stereoscopic perspectives (fooling our brains into thinking that we’re seeing two views at once). A few photographers have pulled off that trick before, but Fagerholm uses a different medium: ink and sometimes Sharpie.
“I am interested in GIFs as an art form,” Fagerholm tells Co.Design. “I started making GIFs and posting them to Tumblr a few weeks ago and was surprised at how many reblogs the ‘Gem Creature GIF’ was getting (15,961 notes currently on Tumblr). I don’t know why people find these GIFs so striking.”
