I was working on more psychedelic style images for fliers for Beau's gigs, and then the sun came out... While I was out enjoying the sun I was pondering psychedelic images and psychedelic myths, in particular, the myth of people going blind from taking acid and staring at the sun for hours. This image is my idea of what that might look like. The sun fractalizing, with the mandala being the part of the retina being burned out, and clouds around the edges. (I'm proud of how the clouds came out. On the blue background, they look like light summer clouds.)
The mandala really needs to e seen at full resolution to appreciate, so the full res version is behind the cut.
