In this paper, we study solutions of a variation of a classical integral equation (based on the Picard operator) in which Lebesgue measure is replaced by a self-similar measure µ. Our main interest is in the fractal nature of the solutions and we use Iterated Function System (IFS) tools to investigate the behavior and self-similarity of these solutions. Both the integral and differential forms of the equation are discussed since each brings useful insights. Several convergence results are provided along with illustrative examples that show the applications of the theory when the underlying fractal object is the celebrated Cantor set. Additionally we show that the solution to our integral equation inherits self-similarity from the defining measure µ.
