Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make a fractal that may help us all remember that. It’s pink and it has a design that I think reflects the target(s) of this disease pretty well. I hope you enjoy my little reminder about this important disease and all the people affected by it.
A wonderful fractalist by the name of Titia VanBeugen died earlier this year of this horrid disease and I was thinking of her when I made this. She was not only an amazing artist, but a truly lovely human being with a strong spirit and love for life. She often used her work to express how she felt about her illness. For those of you not familiar with Titia’s work, here is a link to her website . Here’s another link to the Titia’s page in the Virtual Math Museum . I’m so delighted that both sites are still up. So, happily, her art lives on! Godspeed, Titia, you are greatly missed.
Here are some examples of her terrific work:
And a beautiful image and poem by Titia. Click on image to see it larger.
Created in UF5 and postwork done in GIMP.
