Fractals such as the Mandelbrot set are constructed computationally. based on an equation. It is also possible to construct fractals graphically, based on a set of rules for progressing from one iteration to the next. The use of a computer drawing program such as FreeHand greatly aids this repetitive construction process. A variety of such fractals are constructed using the circle as the fundamental building block. In some of these~ overlapping circles are employed, while in others, the circles do not overlap, but touch tangentially. An example of the latter is shown in Figure 1. ...
