Mixing past and present with humor and style, art and GIFs are the perfect pairing, bringing stunning illustrations, and vectors to life through Photoshop. Tumblr's 2014 Year in Review surfaces some of the best digital animated art from artist's across the network. So we sifted through the selections, and chose our favorites from this past year.
The following collection features work from T.S. Abe, whose soft

From art historical reboots to 3D optical illusions, scroll through and enjoy some of the best GIFs this year.
