One Successful Year of Apo Challenges
Happy Anniversary “Aphophysis Challenges”
Let’s travel backwards in time !! The date October 29th 2009 ...
On that date Stan a.k.a. :iconf--l--A--r--k: f--l--A--r--k came up with an idea that soon got our Apo fractalists addiction cells in a riot.  At least mine got a huge jolt. :nod::iconyay-plz:

Benoit Mandelbrot, 20 November 1924 – 14 October 2010
The genius mathematician who discovered and brought to the attention of the world the art and geometry of fractals, Benoit Mandelbrot, passed away last month. In tribute to him and his work, and in celebration of his life, we are holding an official Fractal Art Contest.
To enter the contest, entrants should make a fractal

GNARLS - Fractal Styles
GNARLS - Fractal Styles
"I put a gnarl (spell) on you ....cause you mine"  this is really what Gnarls Barkley should have been
singing as did Nina Simone in her original :giggle:
To understand, our fascination in fractal community with 'gnarls' - we ought to understand the word
'gnarl' first - as many times people ask, what it is.
gnarl (plural gnarls) noun
  1. a knot in wood; a large or hard knot, or a protuberance with twisted grain, on a tree.
  2. something resembling a knot in wood, such as in stone or limbs.
  3. (mathematics) The average value of the magnitude squared of the curl of a vector field over
      a continuous path that is tangent to the vector field at every point. In mathematical notation,
      gnarl is represented by the lowercase Greek letter ξ.

Saw my first fractal over 20 years ago and was completely fascinated. I only started creating fractals in Jan '09. I have been involved in some aspect of creativity since as far back as I can remember. All the way from making board games and dice out of card to pottery, batik, tie dye, photography etc... in high school and now I am into jewelry and anything else that catches my eye.
My Zazzle Products can be found at*
My fabrics are on Spoonflower - several fractals are featured -…
