The animated gif has become an artistic conversation in and of itself these days. There isn’t much that can’t be said on Tumblr, Facebook or any other social media site in less than 10 seconds with some funny text, cats or dancing images of Kate Upton. Artist Paolo Čerić takes the animated gif art form to a whole new level with his mind-bending creations. Part Escher, part pop-culture commentary and all cool, the collection is one you have to check out. If you didn’t get enough with this gallery, check out the rest on his website Patakk.

French knife manufacturer Deejo does things a little differently when it comes to their knives. Choose the handle material, weight, finish, and text you want displayed on the handle. Then, and this is obviously the coolest part, select one of seventy five different tattoo designs to have displayed on the blade of your new knife. The tattoos are pretty sweet too, with options like an old-school pin-up girl, a watch movement, wilderness scenes, animals, and more. Put that all together and odds are you’ll never run into another person with your exact knife.
