Starting with an empty canvas

Doug Bowman has decided to start with an empty canvas. He has stripped the stylesheets from his site and added only the bare essentials to the design. It's as close to an empty canvas as I have seen. Doug has vowed to let the readers of his site watch the progression of the new design. "With my schedule right now, it's just not possible to go from one version to a full-fledged redesign. So it will come in chunks," Doug said. I can't wait to see what the design will evolve into, but I look forward to watching it grow. Also be sure to catch Doug's presentations at WebVisions 2004 this July.
I seem to remember Mark Pilgrim doing something similar last summer (?), only Doug's is more elegant already. :) (I'm very much looking forward to seeing Doug at WebVisions, btw.)
