Creativity is a chance to escape the real world; allowing you to produce your own universe of patterns, illustrations and characters, your work can help others escape the mundanity of every day life. Sparrows is one such artist that does just that, with an array of incredibly beautiful GIFs.
"Being able to add the dimension of time to a static drawing is really satisfying and makes it feel like a little pixel snowglobe world," the artist explains. "I really loved those cinemagraphs that were big a few years back and wanted to try drawing my own.
"When you get to control every single pixel like the scary megalomaniacal god of your own little photoshop universe you're not beholden to most of the laws of physics or common sense. It's very fun." Take a look at some of our favourites below and be sure to check out the others on the sparrows website.
