Prepare to fall in love -- and become an instant lifetime fan -- with these illustrated Paris GIFs by the London-based illustrator Yoyo The Ricecorpse.

The 'Paris and the Unknown' series will keep you engaged for quite some time as you repeatedly stare at the funky and super quirky illustrated Paris GIFs that do a beautiful job of mixing vintage images of Paris with funny-looking illustrated creatures.

Using only black and white images of Paris for the series, the illustrator then layers the pictures with unusual characters doing random things like dancing in the subway, passing the street, smoking a cigar and twirling in storefront displays. If you're a fan of unconventional artwork then prepare to get your mind blown by this series -- also, be sure to check out the rest of this wicked artist's portfolio.
