Last night we learnt that our dear friend in fractals, Light Ska Iktomi, has passed away: Devious Journal Entry She was the sweetest, kindest person you could hope to meet online, and really held the Aposhack (https://www.deviantart.com/aposhack) community together for many years. Those years were some of the best in my life, mostly because of the fractal scene, and she was so so dear to many of us... I genuinely weep for her passing, she was a great one :( Some more sad news unfortunately, is that I have left my job at Glare Technologies after 9 years. When I joined Glare, I handed over the rights to Chaotica (... it's that old), and they will continue to own it; I've per

Stochastic Labs and SIGGRAPH
I'm doing a residency at Stochastic Labs in Berkeley until July 25th, then will be in Vancouver in August 11-16 giving a talk at SIGGRAPH (!!), finally touring around western USA again in September. If you're in the area and wanna meet up lemme know! I'll try to organise a talk at UC Berkeley with a bunch of flame fractal people (Erik Reckase, FarDareisMai (https://www.deviantart.com/fardareismai), Platinus (https://www.deviantart.com/platinus), mfeemster (https://www.deviantart.com/mfeemster)) around mid July, that would be really cool if it happens :D

Interview
Hi guys, it's been a while, no? ^^; Recently I was contacted by Ricky Jarnagin aka DsyneGrafix (https://www.deviantart.com/dsynegrafix) to do an interview, as part of a series he did on some of the people involved in early Mandelbulb days. Of course I was delighted, and that's just gone up on his website: https://fractal.institute/an-interview-with-thomas-ludwig/ Thanks Ricky! :ahoy:

Amsterdam meetup - August 21-27
Hi guys, the dates for the little fractal meetup in Amsterdam have been finalised: August 21-27, 2017 The confirmed list of people so far (besides me and others who don't want to be listed): Erik Reckase (plus wife): flam3 and electric sheep co-author FarDareisMai (https://www.deviantart.com/fardareismai) (plus husband) technochroma (https://www.deviantart.com/technochroma) and FractalSauce (https://www.deviantart.com/fractalsauce) (the cute fractal couple!) I'll update this journal if more people confirm they'll join us. The basic plan is to meet up in the Amsterdam city centre somewhere and do a whole lot of fractaling together! Of course, Amsterdam being Amsterdam, there's a ton of great stuff to do including boat rides in the canals and... w

Indigo Renderer competition!
Phew, been ages since I've posted here... sorry about the radio silence :paranoid: Thought it might be good to mention here, there's an Indigo Renderer competition going for scenes to be included with Indigo, so it's a good opportunity to get your work seen by a lot of people if it's chosen :) Besides that there are of course loads of prizes, including an Radeon RX 580 with 8 GB memory and loads of Chaotica Studio licences! Hopefully some of you super talented 3D folks will enter :D For more info please check out my full post on the Indigo forum: https://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=14346
