The Internet’s Largest – And Only – Curated Collection Of Leonard Cohen Animations

The Leonard Cohen Animations Gallery

OK, this is the only designated collection of Cohen-associated animated gifs on the internet at the time of posting. Still, Cohencentric does offer a bunch of these things.1


The collection was originally put together as one of the treats for the 2013 Leonard Cohen European Tour Advent Calendar, but unlike many facilities erected for the Olympics and World Fairs, this gallery remains functional.


Many entries – and all animations in this post – are DrHGuy constructs.  Some are from Joey Carenza,. Whatever is known of the origin of the animations is given in the description.


The gallery can be accessed at Leonard Cohen Animations


  1. There is, as far as I can determine, no collective noun for a group of animated gifs. Not one to ignore the absence of an obviously useful term, I have considered the issue and, despite the merits of a repetition of gifs and a recurrence of gifs, have determined that a movement of gifs offers the best name for the aforementioned bunch of animated gifs.
