It looks like someone’s had too much surreal cereals for breakfast this morning.
Not that we’re saying that it’s a bad thing, we’re actually nodding in appreciation of artist and illustrator *Dax Norman’s* animated work. Not only do these animated GIFs pass the bill to be included in our _Snippets and Vignettes_ series, they also reimagine a time where *Salvador Dali* still lives and creates out-of-this-world scenes and images and posts them up on the Internet.
It’s easy to imagine Dali having a Tumblr account filled with outrageous snippets from his head but who needs to imagine that when Dax Norman is here to do that for us. The surreal work that Norman posts on his Tumblr page ranges from simple 2D pieces to 3D patterns that perpetually burst into life.
Dax Norman also incorporates various pop culture references in his looped images, featuring the great surrealist Salvador Dali himself, Buddy Holly, artist Frida Kahlo and many more. Norman’s work borders near the psychedelic edge and is trance-inducing, but we just can’t stop looking.
You can see more of Dax Norman’s surreal GIFs in his Tumblr.

A mist makes things wonderful.” said Oscar Wilde.
Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
