Greek artist Petros Vrellis took the iconic panting of the night sky over Saint-Rémy in France and applied a combination of creativity, interactivity, and subtle enhancements to bring the painting to life in ways we’ve never witnessed before. Using openFrameworks, an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding, Vrellis takes one of the most famous interpretations of movement and flow ever created and allows it to realize the extent of its motion.

Illustrator Dain Fagerholm, of Seattle, USA, has developed a portfolio comprised of hand drawn three dimensional GIFs to which he has given the name ‘stereographic drawings’. Stereographic images have existed for hundreds of years as a 3D illustrative technique. In this method, one tricks the eye with two parallel images captured with a minor difference in perspective to be shown at a close range in order to simulate a tactile quality. Fagerholm’s approach is quite similar to this antiquated approach, but, in place of hyper-realistic drawings or photos of landscapes or people, the artist instead creates an illusion of depth for his hand drawn mystical creatures to appear lively. In order to create stereographic sketches, fagerholm first sketches the monster figures, gems and surreal landscape with colorful markers or pens. The artist then converts his illustrations into stereographic GIFs, enabling his two dimensional drawings to become three dimensional, 
moving images.
