mandelbrot with turtles and Python

I used Python turtles to draw an image of the madelbrot set.

Here is the code I found on the internet that does the math part.

But I wanted to draw this with a turtle.

All of my code is here in this gist

It is fairly slow to run and the UI locks up... but it will make a nice picture.

Crazy that you do this in turtle (though not too quickly).

And here is the image that the code will output
