Q&A with Howie Lee Weiss

Q1: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?

HLW: Elegant, clean, informative.

Q2: How often do you typically update your website?

HLW: As new drawings are produced, they may fit into existing categories or require a new category in itself. This varies with time. Additionally some drawings may be edited out of the website, therefore not only adding is important but subtracting becomes essential also.

Ensemble – 8 x 7 Minor but multiple variations based on simple shapes assemble together to form large collections. Each small drawing shares wall space with its numerous, almost identical partners; thus the individual becomes part of the larger population.

Q3: How do you choose the photos that you display on your homepage?

HLW: I put 6 drawings together in one j-peg so viewers could see all 6 works at once – giving somewhat of a mini overview. I plan to change the home page from time to time.

Q5: What’s one piece of advice you’d offer to someone designing their website?
