About Animated Text

“When the moon hits your eye and you suddenly cry that’s depression,” says one of the countless floating 3D text memes from Twitter’s @animatedtext. Social media artist Cat Frazier makes “‘dad jokes’ if your dad was a black lesbian.” Using the aesthetic of 90s internet sites like GeoCities, Cat’s hilarious, often-risqué gifs would surely make dads everywhere blush. A trained graphic designer, Cat rebelled against her schooling, creating twistedly sarcastic (and sometimes sarcastically twisting) posts that led to a job producing content for Super Deluxe. While she often deals with themes of depression and anxiety in her work, her memes nonetheless bring joy to 535K+ Facebook followers. What’s that old saying about life handing you lemons?
