Logico Fractatus | City of Quartz: Happy Thanksgiving for 2018!


Next week will see the second installment of Cruel Parodies, my SF critter design series, featuring a twisted, hideous mockery of the official Traveller universe’s freebooting wolves of space, the Vargr, and free of copyright violations. This Thanksgiving day, though, I, bring you a recent DeviantART upload, one of my best fractal transparencies to date, City of Quartz. Enjoy the holiday or whatever other event or festival(s) you celebrate this month, and I’ll see you next week!

Logico Fractatus | Fraxations of Gaston [1]


Here’s a wallpaper generated using Frax Pro. It’s of a Julia set from a point in some far off region of the Mandelbrot set, while playing with textures and randomized color mapping. I’ve turned filigree settings down quite a bit, focusing mostly on details. Feel free to use this one, on your phone, tablet, desktop, or your website, as long as that’s for noncommercial purposes. Thanks!

Cat Thursday | Rickythulhu Rising


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It’s all for the love of cats! Enjoy! This meme is hosted by the True Book Addict!

This week, I’m some photo portraits that have been filtered through Prisma, a few recent shots of Ricky the Maine coon from when he was lounging in my lap during study. These were all taken using the app’s free version.

I’m going to take next week off from blogging, as a recent tragedy with a friend of the family has really put a damper on my motivation. I’m not at liberty to discuss any details, but I wish his family and associates the best, and offer my condolences for this terrible loss. Just thought I’d let you know.

So, heres Ricky, in some of his best recent moments, with his fluffy, majestic self!

And finally, the current wallpaper on my iPad Mini:

So, until the week after next,

Be well. Be safe. Be brilliant as the stars.

Logico Fractatus | Quaternion Rising


Vanakkam. This week, I’m working and playing with Julia sets. In playing with one of my iPad apps, QJulia HD, here’s one such fractal, but of a strange sort! While regular Julia sets use two-dimensional complex numbers for their position on the complex number plane, this one is a quaternion, one using a four-dimensional complex number defined for a hypercomplex space. I’m unsure that I’ll make much further use of the app, but this isn’t too bad for something of such limited scope!

May you have a great Tuesday, and in abbreviated Soruggon,

Tf. Tk. Tts.
