RIP Ken Musgrave - Long Live Mojoworld!

Dr. Forest Kenton Musgrave (aka 'Doc Mojo') was one of the great figures in the evolution of computer digital art, particularly landscape creation through fractal geometry. I still have a (now rare) boxed copy of his wonderful Mojoworld software, which lets you generate hugely complex fractal planets and then send a virtual camera around it looking for interesting views to render as still images or animations. Sadly, Ken Musgrave died (far too young!) last December. Way back 2001, I interviewed him. When Digital Art Live Magazine asked if they could reprint that interview as a tribute, I was very pleased to agree.
