  1. Not at all what I was expecting! I assumed he created a very tiny grid of cells and was filling each cell with different colors, similar to pixels.

  2. Some stunning designs!

  3. This story is just as interesting now as it was 5 years ago when everyone was covering it.

  4. @Sam! OMG! Really?

  5. You covered him in your own blog back in 2013 :)
