The Haunted Nebula -- Happy Halloween!I’ve done quite a few different Halloween pictures over the years and I think I’ve covered most of the basic themes (jack-o-lanterns, black cats, ghosts, graveyards, etc). This year I thought it would be fun to try something different.

It all started when I heard about the passing of Benoit Mandelbrot (the father of fractal mathematics) last week. Fractals play a huge part in my work so I wanted to do something as a tribute to the man. Halloween was quickly approaching however and I wanted to do something for the holiday.

I thought it would be fun to combine the themes and created “The Haunted Nebula“, my first fractal Halloween planetscape. Hope you enjoy it and have a happy Halloween!
