Inception

There is something calming and hypnotic about Mario Wagner’s GIF - A smart droste effect which makes it hard to look away. His engaging work is pushing the boundaries of illustration into the realms of animation, with a smart budget too. We love that this can be used to illustrate an article in the same space as a still image might. Good work Mario!
