Here at the Daily Dot, we have an unofficial tradition of sharing GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you into the circle. In the Morning GIF, we’ll feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Have you ever wished you could turn mundane life tasks into GIF animations?

That’s exactly what German animator Lisette Berndt has done with her new GIF series “It’s no biggie.” Here’s how she explained the project on her website:

It’s no biggie
is satire,
is entertainment,
is you,
is me,
is annoyment,
is life,
is endlessness,
is here and there.

The series, which is powered by Tumblr, features stunning hand-drawn animations of a woman surfing porn on a computer, a girl dropping things on the floor, and a woman holding an umbrella up in the rain.

Almost each of the GIFs has gathered dozens of reblogs, likes, and comments. Some have even been featured on German online magazine Ignant.

This animation of a Occupy Wall Street protester was particularly poignant.
