maori sakai's animated scenes

Oh how lovely Maori Sakai's illustrations are. The Japanese artist draws peaceful moments from everyday life – the steam from a fresh cup of coffee, rain pitter-pattering on the window, reading in the park – and turns them into calming GIFs we could watch on loop for hours. Maori's favourite things to animate include food and nature (the best things in life!), and you can soothe your brain by glimpsing more of her work on Instagram
