No, that's painting directly onto the Display (a.k.a. the canvas's form), which is considered bad style in Morphic.

30 at 30 would be in the upper-left corner of the Display. Unless your morph covers that, you won't see it.
You might try "self topLeft + (30 at 30)" but again, that's bad style.
In any case, I thought your question was about displaying the Mandelbrot set. It would be wise to paint that into a form, preferably in a background process. Then just update the display (by drawing the form) once a second until it's finished.
