Divtober Speedrun

October is the month of “Divtober”, where artists are challenged to draw different things using CSS and a single HTML element. Each day they get a theme to work with. You can find some nice works on CodePen, all tagged #divtober.

Looking forward to the rest of the series there, Bruce! 😅
