    Here's a pro tip just for you. Open the site, then swap to another tab - wait for a few minutes. Swap back to my site, enjoy the onslaught of shapes.

      I actually found out about this accidentally by writing that comment and swapping back to the site to look at the header some more. :)

      Done that twice since!

      Oh, and I DID check out the rest of your work ;) Very well made portfolio and some nice work there. Enjoyed it!

      .edit: also, isn't canvas fun? I ran into a similar "issue" as yours a few days ago with a side project I was working on, lightbulbs flickering to the beat. But when I swapped away and reloaded the page, it caught up to all the missed beats at a rate of requestAnimationFrame()! For my project however, it wasn't something I turned into a feature ;)

        Haha yeah canvas does some weird shit. Originaly you'd swap back, it'd spawn 1k boxes, and your browser would promptly crash. But once I had object cleanup the crash stopped, but I left it in as a feature haha.

          Funny how we had a similar process! For my animation I ended up skipping the frames it hadn't rendered, even though a friend noted it "looked quite funny seeing it animate at 10x speed" :)
