SlimJim Studios is run by London-based animation director and designer James Curran. Last month, Curran hopped on a plane and spent a month exploring Tokyo. While most people today tend to document their travels through iPhone photography, Curran deviates from the norm. Every day he made an animated GIF inspired by what he did that day. From the Imperial Palace to high-tech toilets, his daily GIFs are addicting to watch. This project gives an outsider a glimpse of life in Tokyo. Each delightful GIF has a touch of Curran’s personality and humor.
This isn’t the first time Curran documented his travels through GIFs. Last November, he created his first Gifathon during his month-long stay in NYC. Each GIF was inspired by his day. Here is a video of the entire month.
And last July, he created his second Gifathon during his month-long stay in LA.0
