Mandelbrot Gallery

Welcome to the Mandelbrot Gallery on Zazzle. I've written some software for drawing Mandelbrot and Julia Set fractals, and then I've had fun making some images with it. This Gallery allows you to view and buy prints or gifts containing images from my Gallery. Enjoy browsing!

Remember - each image you see is available as any type of product (t-shirt, mousepad, etc.). You can add whatever options you like, too: Mug style, picture frame, etc.

Fractals make abstract art, of a kind that is beautiful by definition. Mathematics is usually perceived as producing images that are ugly to look at, because of the built-in predictability which our eye finds boring. Fractals spring from chaos theory, which uses regular equations to produce objects that are, by definition, unpredictable. Hence beautiful mathematics.
