Homage to Escher

Been working on a series of Escher-esq images in Apophysis 2.07beta based on 5spiralsInline flame of DeviantART's Fractal-Impact Mixed flame pack . Used the Super Susan script of Phoenixkeyblack, also from deviantART. Good site that!

Came up with a whole swag of images Escher would love. I do too. I keep thinking what he might have done with fractal generators like Apophysis. I am definitely a hobbit being carried on the backs of giants & wizards....wither....?

So here's a small sample from my series:

Homage to M.C. Escher

I'll leave them nameless. You can check out more of them on my Flickr & DevianART sites, click on links in Anu Links at right.

Good rain is falling, with the odd thunderstorm. Sandflies very bitey.

It seems like the people are finally working around the war lord mentalities that have dominated thinking & media noise for so long. Of course there's nothing like the terrifying scenario of rising sea levels to focus minds to mutual survival.

But still our numbers grow. Oz is now 21 million. Land of the Ruddites.

Somehow the population pressure/carrying capacity keeps being whited out of the equation. Doesn't it occur to the decision makers that less people means less pollution, less impacts on the biosphere? Ah yes...the elephant in the room. We don't want to go there, do we!
