You can make a custom cursor like my Frenchy one above.

What you’ll need: A blank piece of white paper, a black pen, camera, basic Adobe Illustrator (or another vector graphics editor such as Inkscape or Sketch), html and css knowledge.

A couple of weeks ago in class we were looking at the Glossier website (it was actually class-related; we weren’t online shopping during class!) and someone noticed that when you hovered over certain images, the cursor would change into a cute icon. I thought, “That’s pretty cool. How could I make my own custom cursor?”

By default, your cursor is usually a little white arrow, which turns into a hand…
