Graphic designer Jacob O’Neal has broken down the complicated into these easy to follow gifs for all you lazy people out there. We’d thank him, but we’re too busy learning how to Moonwalk.
Make sure to check out the rest of Jacob’s work on his website animagraffs.
Week 44. Skullbur.

Instructions: for maximum pop-edutainment value, assume that each of the 64 frames represents the passage of 1 million years and that the mutant birds are getting exponentially larger and more powerful with each cycle.

I made this a while back for the excellent 15folds.com project, and they posted it today! Each month they ask visual artists to create a GIF on a theme. March’s theme was Evolution. Evolution is an interesting topic for a GIF if you’re attempting to show it somewhat literally (like I did here, perhaps boneheadedly) because GIFs inherently loop back to a certain point and can’t ever truly evolve to something unpredictable. So I stepped back and tried to illustrate one abstract aspect of evolution - mutant genes, and how they sometimes create advantaged strains that then become dominant and eliminate their unmutant ancestors. Mutants! GIFs! Evolution! Anyway, thanks 15folds.com for inviting me to participate, I had a blast thinking about it and creating this.
