Maybe the nicest of all tilings is the regular tiling with hexagons. A seamless fit and exciting at the same time. I had to make a decision about how to put them in order. The solution is to stagger them. This was the first plot where I put the “bytes”(hexagons) in random order. My good friend and artist Marten Hazelaar suggested that. It creates a field of hexagons where no hexagon is the same. It is pleasing to the eye. Also check the ones with three extra lines that make them look like cubes.

#### 8 bits hexagons, in sequence (nr. 03-01)

• 8 bits so 28 = 256 hexagons
• Plotted on CANSON® XL® Bristol Bristolpaper A4.
• Black pigmented fineliner
• In sequence from the top left to the bottom right
• Dimensions: 14x16cm (5.5″x6.3″)

• Also possible
• Different dimensions (smaller than 20x20cm)
• Shuffled (see next one)
• white, silver, gold or bronze on black paper (maximum 6 bits, so 64 hexagons)

#### 8 bits hexagons,shuffled (nr. 03-02)

• 8 bits so 28 = 256 hexagons
• Plotted on CANSON® XL® Bristol Bristolpaper A4.
• Black pigmented fineliner
• Shuffled, all hexagons are different
• Dimensions: 16x19cm (6.3″x7.5″)

#### 6 bits hexagons, shuffled, gold on black (nr. 03-03)

• 6 bits so 26 = 64 hexagons
• Plotted on black paper.
• Golden paint fineliner
• Shuffled, all hexagons are different
• Dimensions: 16x19cm (6.3″x7.5″)
