'The Ends of Invention' Smallbay by MarkJayBee 'The Ends of Invention' Smallbay by MarkJayBee

Another image inspired by a recent re-reading of Iain M. Banks's superb 'Consider Phlebas'. This time we're in a
so-called 'smallbay' in the humungous GSV (General Systems Vehicle) 'The Ends of Invention', where 'Kraiklyn's
Free Company' - aboard their ship the 'Clear Air turbulence' - have docked prior to some nefarious activity....

A larger version of this piece can be viewed, and prints purchased at: markjaybeefractal.com/the-ends… :nod:

Wow, a cool fractal AND an Iain Banks fan... We lost a big one there, what a visionary.

Thanks Edith! :bow: Yes indeed, he was definitely a one-off. :nod: His work is so detail rich that it
bears multiple rereads - I'm currently re-enjoying his brilliant 'The Hydrogen Sonata'! Reading

I just finished the new C.J. Cherryh Foreigner book, that came out yesterday... re-reading much of Banks sounds good soon!

ugh.. looking at this image makes me feel sick and dizzy.
I love the colours and the mood of it but the forced perspective thing its making my head spin.
