Browsing on internet I found a few people that are keeping themselves busy with personal projects on a daily basis. Every day they're able to post something online.
Looking at them I always thought I couldn't make it: too busy with my daily job in the studio, too busy at home with my family. But I tried.
And I managed to do it. I just had to work against the clock. GastaLoops is a 100 day design project with some "auto inflicted rules", strong limitations that are able to fuel the creativity. The gifs had to be:
50 frames long with 3 flat colours (ivory, coral, black) looping
Some of the GastaLoops I have done are better than others. Some are technically really simple. Some are boring. But I am really happy that I manage to keep up for 100 days, with no missing days. I posted these gifs on my dribbble account and, from the Dribbble team I have been featured and interviewed on their TimeOut page. Few days later, I have been interviewed on GIF Magazine. And thanks to these gifs, I am now a featured artist on Giphy! One of my GastaLoops became an advert for Smoke & Mirrors on Pitch Magazine too! The GastaLoops got some more attention and I have been commissioned a work for FinishLine. The client gave me complete freedom to explore and create a looping gif with my style, but their colours. I am now actively trying to do an exhibition with my loops. I think it could be visually interesting to see all of them looping together in a gallery.
For the moment, I put all the loops together in this video, enjoy! http://www.dribbble.com/gastanuke gasta.org
