The art of the gif

 

GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. It is pronounced as the word as “jif” with a soft “G“. GIFs have been around over 30 years. Back in the mid to late 90s, at the dawn of the Internet age, GIFs were tacky little clipart images that moved skittishly, often scattered across sites.

The Maglus Black is back

“I’ve been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black,” said Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

But what makes black such a dominant colour?

First of all black is physically a dominant colour as mixed with any colour black will overpower it. Black can turn yellow into a murky dark mustard, the smallest amount of black can reduce red to a deep wine colour

Black has a wide range of associations. It can be linked with death, magic, and darkness, but it can also symbolize elegance, wealth, restraint, and power.

Black is the first colour ever used by artists in prehistory and the first ink used in early texts. Black played an important role in the development of art.

Black is the king of all colours.
