Location Columbia, Missouri
Teacher of 3-year-olds by day, GIF artist by night. Lacey Micallef is a freelance designer whose tools are 8-bit graphics, animated GIFs, and bizarre pop culture juxtapositions. Hamburgers and pizza are often (delicious) sources of inspiration, as are collaborations with other GIF artists on Tumblr. What started as a hobby may very well beget a new art form, with creators like Lacey leading the way.

Yes! Can we just add to this how enamored we are with the tumblr efforts coming from our French counterparts? We are e-nam-ored. Check out both Christopher Dickey’s as well as the photoblog from staffers at the Newsweek/Daily Beast Paris bureau. So thanks, Lacey, lover of hamburgers and pizza, for giving our Paris Bureau Chief a spotlight.
