There is a place we rememberand nowthere is our memory of the place (Image made in a new fractal program, Fraqtive by Michal Mecinski.  Then it was worked over quite a bit by my usual photoshop filter machine, XnView, and then zapped into the final collage which was done with a single filter from the […]

The Nameless City

Jan 05, 2009 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

When I drew nigh the nameless city I knew it was accursed. I was traveling in a parched and terrible valley under the moon, and afar I saw it protruding uncannily above the sands as parts of a corpse may protrude from an ill-made grave. Fear spoke from the age-worn stones of this hoary survivor […]

We played croquet and lawn-tennis, and when it grew dark we had a long supper, and Lyda once more spoke of her schools and Balaguin, who had got the whole district into his own hands. As I left the Volchaninovs that night I carried […]

Sindbad’s Dream

Dec 04, 2008 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

I had inherited considerable wealth from my parents, and being young and foolish I at first squandered it recklessly upon every kind of pleasure, but presently, finding that riches speedily take to themselves wings if managed as badly as I was managing mine, and remembering also that to be old and poor is misery indeed, […]

(Image from Numismondo-World) Using Revolver, Mirror-Mirror, India Ink and a host of other filters, I turned the above image into this: Being my further attempts to experiment with the creative theme of paper money, I also created a reverse side to my banknote.  I tried to add some simple money attributes like a denomination number […]

        (strings.loo) While doing some more radical experimentation in Sterlingware I made this.  It’s using the Gaussian 6 render method which isn’t usually a very useful one.  However, when you just concern yourself with making something interesting to look at and forget about the the more technical side I guess you’re more likely to find […]
