The illustrated animated gifs that make up the Winter in China art series are whimsically charming. Although aside from the Chinese characters present in each frame, these scenes could easily have taken place in other countries that enjoy this frosty season. They revolve around scenes of nature that could easily be found in other parts of the world.

But what makes the Winter in China art series particularly charming are the characters depicted in each one. While one man is mesmerized by falling snow, another one is trying to shake down a tree while yet another is simply standing still as the wind breezes by him. These scenes offer simple inspiration when it comes to what to animate and what not to.
