Fractal Dim Sum

Jul 31, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Can small pictures be an artform?It all started with my file browser. I wanted to be able to browse images at the same time as other files, so I adjusted the size of the thumbnails in my Linux file browser, Nautilus, to the size that they would be in any decent image viewer when in […]

Walking Heads

Jul 29, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

I came up with an interesting color setting for Sterlingware. The process is one where I work with both the fractal program and graphics program in sequence. So I experiment with Sterlingware and find something that looks promising and then save it. Then I open it up in the graphics program (Xnview) and see if […]

Fun with Mirrors

Jul 24, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

After three hundred and something postings, one has a tendency to repeat oneself. Or, euphemistically speaking, revisit previous themes. I must have said something about this. Symmetry, maybe. Here are two sets of images, made in Sterlingware, and anti-aliased 2 or 3:1, although I’m finding that anti-aliasing doesn’t always make for a better image. I […]

Art Fist: The Brutal Code of Color!

Jul 21, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Sterli30.loo I made this image in Sterlingware with only a slight hue shift in XnView, my trusty side-kick. Although Sterlingware is now over 10 years old, which is pretty old by software standards, and lacks many of the new features that extend the rendering powers of fractal programs (i.e. user formulas and other junk) I […]

I m a g e &nbsp N o t e sStarted with Vernissage.8bf, then Mosaic Toolkit (Lance Otis), then …out comes the hammers and wham-o-rama! until I saw something that shouted out, “Hey!”. Works every time.

Pulsar: Song of the Whipper Wire

Jul 08, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

I heard this explanation of a pulsar once, it had something to do with radio waves and some cyclical thing and was just way too scientific to be true. I said to the guy, a professor I think, “Wait a minute. What if you’re all wrong and it’s just some creature in a cave of […]

Blue Screen of Death Vs. the Red Planet

I m a g e &nbsp N o t e sJust a simple, pure Tierazon fractal and no artificial ingredients, except, of course, the text which was done with the simple and quick text feature in XnView. I think the typeface is Tahoma, 8pt.

Fatboy Gets the Loot But Learns to Enjoy Sharing With His Tiny Cousins

Jul 02, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Was he a bully? Or did he just show more initiative? Over the years his talents quickly developed along with his ability to find the good stuff, haul it off — and wolf it down. Of course, his tiny cousins were better off at reaching the small recesses of the cave and cleaning those places […]

Something Stripey This Way Comes

Jun 29, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Different, ominous, threatening… One of the things I find both intriguing and yet also frustrating about art is that people seem to respond to it differently and this makes the experience difficult to explain and subsequently, to comment upon or even predict. This image, which is an unaltered fractal from Tierazon, passed through several different […]
