This is the comic I coded this week for comiCSS. It is a silly joke drawn with HTML and CSS (you can see the source code here):
The design for this cartoon was inspired by two different drawings that I saw on Dribble:
I also created an animated version of the comic (available in Spanish too!), I hope you enjoy it:
NOTE: The animation only plays once. You may need to click on the "Rerun" button in the bottom right corner.
It was actually a lot of fun trying to animate the drawing. I normally don’t do much animation, mostly just drawing –and, of course, laying out content and website styling, I mean from a creative perspective–. So it was quite a challenge, to be honest.
I liked the result, but I’m not fully sold on things like eye movement or how Death restarts walking. I need to explore the animation properties and try to create new things that move and behave more naturally.

you mean: "Death in CSS"
or death by CSS...
Famous last words:
That too 🤓
Death by CSS Grid
Amazing, looks impossible. Good job
As a new guy in css world looks impossible to me.
we share same feeling.... hope we get better soon
If it helps anything, what's showcased on this post is not something especially practical or useful for web development.
This is really cool - thanks for sharing!
How long did this take to write?
The static cartoon took me less than 1 hour. Animating it took longer 😅
I suppose time doesn't matter so much if it's fun. It certainly looks like it was worth it!
CSS is dead.... long live CSS. 😂
Awesome animation, very well done.
Haha, this is a fun way of making a comic! Well done!
Wow, that's pretty cool!
ja, funny but interesting!
My god, this is incredible! You can probably make YouTube videos/streams while making these...
Sometimes, I share the drawing process on Youtube: youtube.com/alvaromontoro.
Twitch is something I've been exploring, but I'm not consistent.

What precisely does CSS mean?
Comic Strips & Styling.
