Even though quite a few web design professionals are too young to have seen Robert Norman Ross and his television show "The Joy of Painting," a wave of hipster nostalgia has resulted in renewed interest in the work of this charismatic painter. Ross passed away in 1995, but YouTube episodes of his PBS have been attracting a lot of attention among members of the Millennial Generation; it is perhaps for this reason that a cartoon animation of Ross doing the "floss" dance, which grew out of an internet viral moment, is being widely discussed among web designers.
Animated graphics are taking over the web, and cross-browser compatibility is a major aspect of this trend. CSS animations enjoy significant support by nearly every modern browser, mobile or otherwise; the same can be said about scalable vector graphics, but the latter are a bit more intricate to work with. The bottom line of CSS is that web designers who become proficient at it should explore its many artistic possibilities. Webkit rendering is perfect for colorful shapes div by div, although this requires quite a bit of coding skill.
