Fractals of the Week: Digital Throwbacks for Thursday
G’day, and a happy Thursday to you. If not that, then a better one than last. This week I thought I’d reach into the archives and pick out some of my earlier images, to show a few snapshots of fractal evolution over the past 5 years since I began this silly endeavor of mucking about with digital art.
These are all reduced-sized versions of the original files, and at bottom, I’m including a slightly reduced wallpaper, still at 2592 pixels wide, of one of my most evil-looking images, and an old favorite: “World Building.”
I’ve recently finished one of my projected projects, taking notes from another of my courses and putting them in digital form, and with recent purchases I’ll be able to pen notes by hand on my ‘Pad’s touchscreen.
Why by hand?
Because I’m partly a tactile/visual learner, and physically writing the shapes of the letters onto the tablet or hardcopy notebook serves as a useful memory aid, plus it allows me practice my writing speed and legibility to better and more quickly pen down notes as I’m listening to a lecture in progress.
All for the sake of lifetime learning. My chief possession is my mind, such as that is, and I’d rather furnish it with the best possible equipment for when it’s needed. All the better to keep it open, but not so far that my brains fall out and make me a tempting morsel to the Undead during the Zombie apocalypse.
So, here are the images, and with the wallpaper just below the first four, just click to enlarginate.
