LA GIFs from James Curran, Master Giffer

In July I spent a month in Los Angeles where I animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during my stay. See all the looping GIFs on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram with #LAGifathon or follow me to keep up with the next Gifathon, coming soon... Sound by the amazing David Kamp

James Curran, of SlimJim Studios, has some really great, fun GIF sets. Here is his take on Los Angeles.
