This website is designed to be fast for you and cheap for me. To that end, I use a static site builder because it meets these goals and leaves me more time for writing and other things I like to do.

Color Bands

The homepage animation and the favicon for this site were inspired by the work of Sol LeWitt an American minimalist, conceptual artist who died in 2007. Specifically, Color Bands a linocut made in 2000.

In my study of this work, I created an identical representation in SVG to better appreciate how it was made and the elements involved. I have not posted it here out of respect to the artist. Duplicating an artwork, even for educational purposes, does not constitute fair use.
