Checking in with gif-man Julian Glander to talk hotdogs and dachshunds

Any fella with the energy and inclination to create a behind the scenes illustration of an animated gif he made earlier – let that one sink in for a moment – is absolutely fine with us. Julian Glander’s been up to his armpits in commissions since we last caught up with him, building gifs of funny jiggly people jumping into cereal bowls, dachshunds flying down flights of stairs, skating hot dog sausages and drum-playing apples for the likes of Starbucks, Subway and Giphy. This series was made for Koodo though, a Canadian cellphone provider, proving that anything can be made to look exciting if the commissioner is good enough at scoping out up-and-coming young talent.

It’s something of a sidenote, but Julian also has tabs on his website for categories including “puking,” “hamburgers,” “super cute” and “blobs.” You can imagine how well he goes down with us lot.
