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. They are all for sale.
