Lots of folks joined in on the fun with the Show Off Your Sprites! contest. I used the ol’ random number generator and came up with Lee Kowalkowski as the big winner, congrats Lee! Now let’s take a look at some of the submissions. Looking at sprites I find strangely fascinating. It’s like this strange secret language of the web that only us performance nerds really understand =)

Some of these may have been cropped or resized. They aren’t meant to be taken and used, I just hope they serve as an inspirational spark!

If you just look through all these and were like “Uhmm, what the heck was that?” Those are called CSS Sprites and you can learn about them here.
