You know those fancy fractal flames I sometimes share as wallpapers?
I’m still making the fractal flames.
Only now, they’re at Society 6 as physical items you can carry around or mount on the walls!
This is my first item:
You can download this and use it as a wallpaper. You can also visit my Society 6 store and get it as a poster or framed print.
Go see more of my pretty things! Tell your friends.
While I am still not ready to stop running predictions on Game of Thrones, I have decided not to post anything new until we see some new information, and then, only if my predictions are compliant with the new information. I was going to say I’m waiting for the S5 DVD set, but then I realized we’re expecting to get a trailer or two before then. So I might post something in response to the trailer(s) before I get to watch the DVDs with audio commentaries. Until then, though? I need to post on other topics and with other materials.
For instance: I have a new graphic design app on my iPad, and I’m learning how to use it. For now, here’s a little something I made in that new app, and cleaned up in Pixelmator. While it is not quite 100% pixel-perfect, it tiles well enough and it looks pretty. Enjoy.
You know what would really bring joy to my workday? An online equivalent of JWildfire or Chaotica. Like, a website that renders fractal flames, and not just flat, simple ones like the Mandelbrot set. Like, I could design a flame at home in JWildfire, save the code in Dropbox, and then paste the code into a website that would render the image. That would be so incredibly awesome.
The new header looked so pretty that the previous background image looked flat and cartoony by comparison. So I went over to http://www.colourlovers.com and made a new background image!
(If you happen to sign up with Colourlovers and end up spending all your spare time there, don’t blame me.)
One of the tricky things about creating a new header image is getting the color palette right. There are so, so many gradients in JWildfire, and most of them are completely inappropriate for what I want to do. But I think this one turned out pretty well.
Here’s a gentle reminder that I also occasionally make my own stuff.

Here’s a little something I made in JWildfire today. Click on image for full size. Download and have fun with it.
I made this graphic today:
See what I did there?
In celebration of having figured out how to approximate an Offset filter in Pixelmator, I am giving you all a new free graphic to download. For the benefit of my fellow Pixelmator users: the trick involves duplicating layers, moving them to the sides, re-merging them, and repeat the process to produce the vertical offset. At the end, crop the layer to its original size. You’re welcome.
I will call this Pretty Red Flowers. Have fun with it.
I have bundled the PNG file with the fractal source file in a ZIP folder. Click on the graphic to get the folder.
Do you see it staring back at you?
