Japanese illustrator Maori Sakai believes that day to day life holds many simple, happy moments. To convey this notion, she creates adorable illustrations, which she turns into basic animated GIFs. These sweet animations help to remind us that sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses (or sunflowers) and remember that there are plenty of things in life to be happy about. Talking to My Modern Met, Sakai said…
“There’s beauty in nature and in daily experiences. I think most people depend on others or a lot of money to feel this happiness, but I think happiness is always a state of mind.”
