  • The Art of FlightThe Art of FlightI found this website from one of the readers, the coolest stuff is not the design but the scrolling! You can observe the attention to detail, especially the short pause in each page and animation of all doodads.
  • Reverend DangerReverend DangerAbsolutely like the illustration style of this website and the toggle between two extreme - Reverend and Danger. It also uses scrolling to play the animation in each section.
