You might not know that without fractalforums.com, the recent history of 3D fractals, i.e. the discovery of the 3D Mandelbulb and Mandelbox would not have been the same, and we wouln't have been able to make these extraterrestrial landscapes, strange and fantastic objects like we see flourishing on DeviantArt fractal galleries for about 2 years now.
So now it's time to say THANK YOU fractalforums for having been the boiling pot which made this new form of 3D fractal art a reality. And especially THANK YOU to Christian Kleinhuis, our beloved administrator, a.k.a. the "priest of chaos" as he likes to call himself for fun on his great new Youtube video series.
So, please support fractal art and the fractal community and go buy the calendar! Moreover, there are several DeviantArt members who took part in this year's edition of the fractalforums.com calendar (last year, 2012, was the 1st edition), so check out this page at fractalforums.com to view the chosen images and pre-order you calendar by Paypal.

This is my contribution to the 2013 calendar:
And in 2012 I was lucky enough to have 3 images in the calendar:
Thanks and have a great day!
Fractal workshop at the Museum of Arts and Crafts
Today I had the pleasure to show fractals and to explain how to make them to the public in a prestigious and awesome venue: the chapel of the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris, in front of the famous Foucault pendulum. People were as usual very curious about fractals in general, but more specifically about 3D printing, and kids had fun exploring the Mandelbrot set. Mission accomplished :)

Art with fractals - article in Pour la Science
Very happy to see this 7 pages articles about fractal art in Pour la Science this month, the French edition of Scientific American. Drawing parallels with other art forms including photography, Jean-Paul Delahaye explains why fractals can be used to create art and talks about the creation process (discovering mathematical formulas, writing programs, and of course using the programs) and focuses on my work: images, book, videos and 3D printed fractal sculptures and jewels. And there's even a mention of Deviantart! He also explains the concept of hybrid fractals with some examples. I have created all the images featured in the article with Ma
