Look Mom, no Photoshop

As a front end developer at Clockwork I spend a lot of time styling elements in the browser. I wanted to bring these skills into our monthly wallpaper art (typically done in Photoshop). So using only HTML, CSS and a bit of JS for fun, I created a “monster in the closet” theme.*

With my nine-year-old son acting as creative director, we experimented with transforms, border radiuses and box-shadows to create a photoshop-worthy design. Combining the technology and the artistry was awesome, and seeing my son’s creativity in action (and realizing he’s a tough director!) was priceless. While the animation won’t work as a wallpaper, we tried to make the lil’ guy as cute as possible to win your love and adoration for the month of October.
