Luckily, we have found an artist from Tokyo that captures our dull and dreary moments and spices them up with a bit of artistic flare. These whimsical and playful animated GIFs will get your engines running for the day, or trap you as you stare endlessly captivated by their movement.

Recently there has been a growing trend of art that focuses on mixing still images with moving elements made possible by animated GIF. One artist who is gaining quite the following is Maori Sakai, a freelance illustrator from Tokyo. She graduated from the Kuwasawa Design School in Tokyo and shares her work on her homepage and Facebook. These wonderful still art and motion GIFs are a delightful little pick-me-up to get you through the day.
