Shane Beam:  Playful, Colorful Motion Abstractions

Shane Beam is a professional Designer and Animator based in Chicago.  He has a degree in Animation from Depaul University.  But like many gif artists, outside of his day job he is compelled to make gifs for himself.  Shane is a strong believer in the uniqueness of gifs as an art form, and likes ‘characters stuck in happy, colorful, and chaotic feeling situations.’  In his best work the flat gentle palette combined with playful drawing and motion accomplishes exactly that.  Colorful chaos that feels charming and safe.  I am guessing he had a wonderful childhood,

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
