Cassie Evans made a lovely illustration of herself and then used Greensock to add a flourish of animations to polish it off. Cassie wrote a series of posts about how she did it:
In this post we’ll cover how to get values from the mouse movement and plug them into an animation. This is my favourite thing about SVG animation. Not mouse movement in particular, but interactivity. Exporting animation as an mp4 is cool and all. But you can’t play with it. Animating on the web opens up so many cool possibilities!
Speaking of combining great illustrations with impressive animations, Jhey Tompkins recently shared a bunch of tips he’s learned from building complex CSS illustrations. This first piece of advice? It takes time and have patience. I’m sure he needed all the patience in the world to pull off his animated Matryoshka dolls.
