New GIFs Help Newcomers Navigate NYC

Artist Nathan Pyle knows a thing or two about living in New York City…or at least adjusting to it. Almost five years ago, he moved from the small suburbs of Dayton, Ohio to the great big city. Throughout the years he’s learned a lot of lessons about living there and he’s now sharing them in his brand new series, “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette.”

Started as a guide for NYC transplants, it’s actually something quite useful for visitors, too.

Pyle is known for his witty illustrations, which we featured around this time last year. This new series has quickly started to make the rounds on the web, hitting Reddit, The Huffington Post and Mashable.

“Making a simple GIF is one of the best ways to get information out on the Internet,” Pyle told HuffPost. So far, he’s animated 13 GIFs using Adobe After Effects but he has plans to release many more. Ultimately, he’d like to crate an illustrated etiquette book. Can’t wait to see more.
