[now you see why I uploaded Gearing to Go
as a separate deviation?
Another fake cover. Try looking for this at the store and you'll be met with open hostility, or worse, puzzlement. LOL!
Anyway, another picture for my scientists/writers collection, this is a tribute to Richard Dawkins, arguably the world's most controversial evolutionary biologist, whose books alternately make me think *and* chuckle out loud. [To be truly great, one needs both high intellect *and* a sense of humour, methinks.]
I realise that there are many people who hate him, but, while it was not my intention to offend said people, I nevertheless reserve my choice to pick my heroes. If I had to take care to please everybody all the time, I might as well hang up my tablet. LOL.NOTES
This is filed under Mixed Media instead of my usual Digital Paintings because, while Dawkins is obviously painted, there are also a number of Apophysis-generated fractals in it, along with that I'm-not-sure-if-it's-a-vexel-or-what but-I-did-it-using-path-and-polygon-tools gear thing. The fractals are from the bottom of my bin: rejects from my very, very early attempts at using Apophysis. Except for the fern, which is pretty new.
The fractals, which were made by mutation, are in homage to Dawkins' "evolution" fractal experiments (done using a programme Dawkins himself wrote in the '80s, I believe).
Yes, I know that the Brights logo is blue. Watch me care.
... Actually, I had to change it because blue would've clashed hideously with everything else in this picture.
