Hi! You must cancel the clear:left in the 1024 query. You can make this adding:

.gallery li:nth-child(2n+1) {
  clear:none;
}

to the 1024 media query.

Hi, It's a problem whit the box model, that adds the 2px border on hover. To fix this add this rule to your stylesheet

* {
  -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
  -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
  box-sizing: border-box;
}

I hope this help! :D
