LOOK: Artist creates 30 animated GIFs to illustrate life in Tokyo
Cultural differences can be both interesting and difficult for someone moving to a different country. For artist James “Jim” Curran, it’s the source of inspiration for his 30 GIFs project.
During his one month stay in Tokyo, Curran spent six to eight hours a day to craft looping GIFs that each illustrate an aspect of his daily life, reports RocketNews24.
People will find it easy to relate to his works, particularly those who have been in Japan for vacation or work.
