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.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
