COMMENTS
Let a(1)=1. Describing a(1) as "one 1" again gives a(2)=11 (same digit string as A005151 and similar sequences). Likewise, a(3) through a(8) have the same digit strings as the corresponding terms of A005151, but describing a(8) as "one 1, four 2s, one 3" gives a(9)=1110213 when the frequency of digit occurrence is written in base 4 and followed by the digit counted.

FORMULA
a(n) = 101112213 for all n >= 12 (see example).
EXAMPLE
Summarizing a(12) = 101112213 in increasing digit order, there are "one 0, five 1's, two 2s, one 3", so concatenating 1 0 11 1 2 2 1 3 gives a(13) = 101112213 (=a(14)=a(15)=...).
