IFStile Introduction
Fractal Art Week
Have you ever wondered how to create artworks like the ones above?
The answer is: substitution tilings. 
The main idea of a substitution tiling is to use a set of building blocks. In this set, each block is made up of smaller blocks having the same shape as the original set. These smaller blocks are made up of even smaller blocks, and so on. For example, let's take a square. Now, we can use 4 smaller squares to build it. And then, 4 even smaller squares.
Some well known examples of substitution tilings are:

Reptiles: Make it Easier!
Fractal Art Week
Hello and welcome to this guide! :D Today I'm going to show you how I usually behave when it comes to making reptiles with Apophysis. I remember I used to struggle so much at the beginning, but once I understood the mechanism behind rep-tiles everything was way easier.
But...what's a reptile even?
The name was coined as a pun (in relation to actual reptiles, like snakes or crocodiles), although in this case it's the short form for repetition tile.
In the geometry of tessellations, a rep-tile or reptile is a shape that can be dissected into smaller copies of the same shape.Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia
Basically, many tiles of the same shape and size combine to form a bigger tile with the same shape.
Here you can see a selection of the most common reptiles:
As example, I'm going to make this tile, since it doesn't require very mathy operations:

Journal History



Calliope U Begins

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 14, 2016, 8:09 PM
Calliope U (for Calliope University) is the sequel to my science fiction/fantasy novel Calliope 7. After much procrastination, I have started writing it! I will probably post a chapter or two on here for comment.  Whereas Calliope 7 was a chronological work, Calliope U is more a series of short stories around the theme of life amongst the space-faring, nanotechnology humanoids (called turbine constructs) we all know and love.  Well, you would love them if you had read Calliope 7.  Now, I don't want to be all spoilerish, so y'all get a copy of Calliope 7 from Amazon and get caught up!

First Chapter is "Anne's Happy Day" - wherein our favorite "wrath of heaven" goes shopping for a new dress.  1500+ words into it, and no one has died...yet!
