Creating 3D Illustrations with CSS

This week we get to learn a new style of CSS art from Ricardo Oliva Alonso. He makes gorgeous 3D pieces with CSS and HTML that animate, play sounds, and lots more. I’ve been seeing his work for a while but could never figure out how he was making some of these designs.
