Celebrating 25 years of the GIF with Clay Rodery

GIF artist Clay Rodery studies every animation he creates. Over the last year, the DC Comics loyalist, DeviantArt contributor, and full-time illustrator has been amassing an impressive library of Batman-inspired GIFs that loop seamlessly.

“GIFs are an opportunity to make little films, tiny narratives. There’s much more attention given to the content of the image because there’s no possibility for sound. Something has to somehow compensate for that, so I suppose that’s why people tend to make such extreme images.”
