Kelton Sears

Kelton Sears is a Seattle-based writer and GIF artist. His GIF work has been featured in Vice, City Arts, Art F City, Seattle Weekly, Digital Arts Magazine, Digital Sweat and GIF Artists Collective. His first foray into the medium came during his time as Seattle Weekly’s Culture & Comix editor, where he began shooting “journalistic GIFs” of article subjects as an alternative to his poor photography skills. The experiment evolved into popular journalistic “GIF comics,” a storytelling format he decided to explore outside of the newspaper for the first time with his debut long-form animated GIF comic, Trash Mountain.
