Outrageously Fun GIFs by 40Licks

A photo blog known as 40Licks features some incredibly surreal images, all edited by the owner of the Tumblr account. Perhaps most engaging and simultaneously intoxicating are the blog's inspired gifs. There are no defining limits for the gifs that cover quick, emotive scenes from movies, juxtapose video game characters with the real world, and tackle the vast wonders of natural elements. The collection ranges from a simple night mist crossing over a full moon to a psychedelic perspective of the night sky shifting back and forth.

The gifs the skilled photo manipulator creates also include some uniquely animated images that incorporate illustration and some highly bizarre themes. I mean, when's the last time you saw a mountain flip its top and engulf the moon? As odd as it may sound, there's something fun and interesting about all of the elusive artist's work, each of which tend to rake in thousands of likes and reblogs. The artist is currently accepting image submissions to edit.

If you like these gifs, you might be interested in checking out these incredible spinning gifs, mesmerizing street art gifs, and awe-inspiring cinemagraphs, which at their core are gifs that isolate movements within the frame.
