For Lucky Peach

You know those people who just can’t seem to shut off their creativity, who bring something interesting to everything they do? Poking around Cari Vander Yacht’s site and Tumblr blog, I get the sense she’s one of these on these ever-on types. Cari is an illustrator from Oregon, now living in NYC and doing beautiful analog works for clients like Lucky Peach, Intel, New York Times, and Wilder Quarterly. Scattered among the client projects are colorful sketches and quirky experiments in GIF and beyond.

Among Cari’s very best personal explorations are her humorous GIFs. Her GIF reel covers it pretty nicely:
