Can we be best friends? That would be great. Oh yeah, and the assignment is a good one too! Reply Keegan West March 14, 2014 @Carla Jean I don't know if you know about @The Art Assignment, but I thought you might like this particular one??:) Reply Kabi Jedhagen March 14, 2014 Sketching starts NOW! <3 Reply Christina Conath March 14, 2014 I love this assignment.. it's probably going to take me a long time to find that one indispensable thing I want to turn into a gif, though ^^ It doesn't have to be completed until the next assignment, does it? Reply Simon Vin March 14, 2014 Is it just me or is the sound out of sync? :/ Reply SollyVlogs March 14, 2014 Exciting! For me my eyes are something indispensable about myself. I like making little silly films, and my eyes give me all the inspiration I could ever hope for. Reply Dinmacil March 14, 2014 Haha! Real talk! I love this artist! =) Reply saharasdreams March 14, 2014 I'm with John, my mind had been blown when Sarah said: that's why it's called a moving picture. And hmm this seems like a really interesting assignment- can't wait to get started on it 🙂 Reply Harriet Mary March 14, 2014 I really liked Toyin, she was so full of life and spunk. I'd love to see more of her, maybe not on the Art Assignment, but somewhere else. Maybe her own channel. Reply Tiffany Yearley March 14, 2014 Anyone know how to submit these to John and Sarah….like people did with the meet in the middle project? Reply artcrazed March 14, 2014 THANK YOU! Today I had my students create their own GIFs based on themselves. It was used as a one day exercise but some students asked if they could expand on it. If you would like to see just let me know. Thank you for providing such wonderful resources. Reply Katharine Smith March 14, 2014 Google: How to make a gif…. Reply Tais Grim March 14, 2014 I love this series so much!! Reply Maxine McCurdy March 14, 2014 Sharing this one for a friend, Flow #theartassignmenthttp://tinypic.com/r/15rmnus/8 Reply Domenica Garcia March 15, 2014 I love being a girlhttp://makeagif.com/i/09L61M Reply Anna Deis March 15, 2014 This assignment-I like it; ANOTHERhttp://gif-creator.ru:8080/gif.xhtml?id=4317 #TheArtAssignment Reply NeilSonOfNorbert March 15, 2014 this is the first one I absolutely can't do, I have no camera, no idea how GIFs are made, probably don't have the software to do it, and on top of all of that I don't have a facility with working computers. I am computer literate, but there is a difference between literacy and linguistics, or poetry, or technical vocabulary. the best I think I could do would be a flip book of some kind, or drawings of the cells. Reply metalman895 March 15, 2014 Your work is amazing, Toyin! Reply Roman Penna March 15, 2014 This is awesome, I would love to do thisFirst I need to know how to make GIFsBut this was so awesome 😀 Reply mermaidpotato March 15, 2014 So I did a thing. http://chronologicalimplosion.tumblr.com/post/79629453453/so-i-wasnt-planning-on-doing-much-participating Reply Zoe Zachariah March 15, 2014 she's so nice!!!!!!! Reply RememberTheTrees March 15, 2014 She seems like such a positive and awesome person. And I love those drawings. Reply self6942 March 15, 2014 I really liked her, she was cool. I'm also not usually a huge fan of works that center so much around those types of texture, but her works really appealed to me. Cool. Hence why I'm subscribed to this channel, the more exposure the better. Reply feitocomfruta March 15, 2014 Unrelated to the assignment, I love Sarah's glasses! Reply screaming_cactus March 16, 2014 o.o Her art is so beautiful. I'm going to make something about my eyes and/or emotions. Reply karakamos March 16, 2014 Toyin is so cool, and this is such a neat assignment! I'm always awed by the work I come across on tumblr, because gifs can be kinda the coolest things ever. I've never made one before, so I think this is my chance to venture into the world of gif-making! Reply Dave's Cave March 16, 2014 I like the music that goes along with these videos. That was a neat assignment, too bad i am horrible at drawing. Photograph i can do though…at least better than drawing. Reply Lydia Youngman March 16, 2014 I love this assignment and the artist!! 😀 Reply Lydia Youngman March 16, 2014 I also love John's role in this as the guy who doesn't know as much about art as everyone else haha Reply Sophie Adams March 16, 2014 I love the assignment! Any GIF makers out there? 🙂 Reply emmelineysun March 16, 2014 I feel like I shouldn't be allowed on the internet, but… I don't know how to make GIFs. Reply Florence Goldson March 16, 2014 How do I upload the GIF? I created it http://www.myspacegens.com/handler.php?gen=animatedimage&p=view and it's animated on my computer but when I try to upload it, it's no longer animated. any tips? Reply saikoujikan March 16, 2014 #theartassignment Finally finished our GIF. It's 196 frames and took all of yesterday and a bit of this morning to get it done and get it right. Come over to our blog to check it out! http://davidandlucy.blogspot.co.uk/ Reply aaronl22 March 16, 2014 This is awesome Reply Lami A. March 16, 2014 I think this one is something I can actually manage to do. 😀 I mean, would love to do the other ones as well but… might take a while to get around to that. Reply Explorium March 17, 2014 I've never made a gif before but this is really making me want to. Love Toyin's work! Reply Benjamin Leyer March 17, 2014 for those of us who are "noobs" … is there a link to a good source for how to make a GIF once all the individual images are set up? Reply Hardcovers and Heroines March 17, 2014 Loved this assignment and just finished my GIF, which you can see on my tumblr here: http://pacebike.tumblr.com/post/79879028017/intimate-indispensable-gif-here-is-my-first I'd never made a GIF before, but using http://makeagif.com/ was very easy. Reply tjacello March 17, 2014 She is so cute! I love the hand drawings. Too bad I can't draw to save my life. Reply Ella Burk March 18, 2014 isallgood! 🙂 Reply Karoline L March 18, 2014 I love this! Here's my take on the assignment: https://24.media.tumblr.com/71a6987823badfcc4d325d614e3a4024/tumblr_n2mxt100Et1qdu4szo1_250.gif Reply Eliza Noakes March 18, 2014 This is mine! http://tinypic.com/r/2wqqzh1/8 This Jewellery box is the last thing I own from my childhood. We went through a tough time and lost all our possessions and home when I was 12. I never fully recovered from it, and it's terrible not having anything from my early life. But I managed to save this jewellery box I was given from Mum when I was 6. I'm now 20 years old, and love it as much (if not more!) as I did then. I couldn't quite get the cropping right, but then I decided I kind of liked it. As I child I was never one of those kids that could be bothered to draw in between the lines, or cut straight. I guess this kind of represents that. Or perhaps my laziness has continues into my 20s. Reply Tesla Hernandez March 19, 2014 I just finished! First attempt at a gif and more than one sketch in a row. I kinda like it! http://imgur.com/x8SRhuv Reply K. A. Werts March 19, 2014 Is a flipagram a gif? Reply K. A. Werts March 19, 2014 Here's mine:: http://flipagram.com/f/wHjsSJlDOm Reply Emmy A Horstkamp March 20, 2014 This was so much fun! I started working on it and my daughter took over and picked the clip we used. It really represented what was important to me. The city I live in and my children. Reply Florence Goldson March 20, 2014 here's my intimate, indispensable GIF: the funny, insightful, crazy, thoughtful conversations I have using my communication apps http://makeagif.com/Jz7Oe6 Reply Cranky Old Man March 20, 2014 I like how both John and Sarah are nerds, but very different kinds of nerds. Reply Carolina Jaramillo March 20, 2014 I AM SO DOING THIS! SORRY FOR YELLING BUT I'M EXCITED!

I might be in love… Reply Gwyneth C March 22, 2014 This series is absolutely wonderful. I am so lucky to have stumbled upon it! Reply Jacqueline Marie March 22, 2014 Just yes; so much yes. Reply Heather Ford March 22, 2014 This was amazing, thank you! Reply Carleigh Newland March 22, 2014 Wow. Toyin is amazing. I love the engaging qualities of this channel, bringing undercover art to people who it might not always be available to, and giving us multiple mediums of response. I am particularly fond of this assignment and its personal roots. Toyin's work is simply captivating. And another thing I enjoy about showcasing art in such a direct format as The Art Assignment engages, is that it gives the viewers a chance to see artists working in their workspace, which is a rare, but is an absolute jem of opportunity. Reply Mayra Cordero March 23, 2014 can I just say how much I am loving these assignments! Thank you to all the crew of the Art Assignment! Reply Anne March 25, 2014 She is gorgeous and a wonderful artist! Feeling very inspired! Reply Pieter Roefs March 25, 2014 something i find fascinating is that she drew her left hand although she is right-handed. I would love to ask her about that 🙂 Reply Sarahjane Cottrell March 25, 2014 My gif is about the importance of books, reading, and my glasses.http://makeagif.com/TEbIm5#kKOjRuUdf7OXUkDi.01 Reply Corinne Demyanovich March 25, 2014 Yay!

Reply Sarah Amazing March 27, 2014 I can't believe those colors in her hand! So beautiful. Reply Robert Tegethoff March 28, 2014 On a side-note, Inoue's Vagabond is perhaps the most meticulously crafted manga out there – pure brilliance! Reply captivatinglymestiza March 28, 2014 I loved this assignment so much!! I paint a lot, but I never made a GIF before, so that was definitely an interesting challenge. Luckily I had some help 🙂 Here's my completed work: http://acvart.wordpress.com/2014/03/28/my-intimate-indispensable/ Reply Lucas Garibaldi March 29, 2014 Vagabond 😀 Reply MentalVideographer March 29, 2014 That's a really cool art style.

I'm sorry. I don't want to be such a negative nancy but Sarah's accent is extremely annoying. I literally hate hearing her talk. Reply Clint Webb May 24, 2014 I really like Toyin though, seems like a wonderful lady. Reply Xinyi WU May 29, 2014 Her drawings, all those lines and colors! I really really LOVE them. Hope I could have one as my bedroom poster. Still struggling to think about something intimate and indispensable to me. Reply Srishti June 19, 2014 gif…or jif…u know i like her Reply Jimmy Horner July 3, 2014 Late to the party but I love this series so far. Love that you talk about Eadweard Muybridge, and I am excited to start working on these projects. They will be wonderful inspiration and warm-ups for my own work.
