Carol Walske and the Joy of Fractals

"Fractals? Me? No sir!" Created in Ultra Fractal. The "no" sign I serendipitously found in Fractint back in 1993.

Fractals...more fun than any computer game. I first discovered fractals in 1989 and found Fractint in 1990. Oh, the pain of watching the basic mandelbrot set draw itself on a 1MHz PC, and in only 16 colors. Trying to cajole a boss into getting me a floating-point processor. Not a chance. In 2001 I discovered Ultra Fractal -- Fractint to the power of Photoshop. Amazing. Mesmerizing. As full of surprises and twists as falling down a spiral staircase. The joys of layering. And, still, the pain of generating, say, fBm texture on even a 1.7GHz PC. I started out as a so-called traditional artist and still like to put pen and pigment to paper. Favorite medium: watercolors. Some of the most appealing fractals to me are the ones that have the texture and "happy accident" look of watercolors.
