As crazy as the title of this post sounds out loud, Part 1 actually received a great number of visits (precisely 100,000 and counting), so it leads me to believe a lot of readers love animated GIFs! That’s a good thing, because I have another assorted selection by artists who take animation loops to a crazy-cool level.
