Episode 1 of LibreArts podcast is out and features an interview with the @krita team that I did in early June at LGM.
There's one caveat: I have no Apple devices in my household and I don't live in a country supported by either Google Podcasts or Spotify. That means three aggregation options are out of question for now (VPN isn't helpful either). But I'm really new to this and I'm probably missing something.
Please let me know what you think about the podcast!
The *official* forum has launched! Come start a conversation with fellow beginners, artists, designers, makers, educators, and more! https://inkscape.org/forums/
After a long sleep, a new post on OSP blog! The report of the Libre Graphics Meeting by @manetta http://blog.osp.kitchen/news/lgm-2019.html with the question of the word "open" by @aiscarvalho and @rlafuente, #education, #vectors, #RaphLevien and new curves for #typography, and #pagedjs inside. @lgm #lgm19
Playing around with Raph Levien's new curve type that he presented at the last LGM, converted to C++. Also comparing to his old spiro type. The blue dots are after conversion to cubic beziers. Where the old spiro is more like having to keep up with a higgs boson gone mad, the new type is much more stable. These curves potentially help a lot to cut down on bezier handle clutter when working with paths.
Call for participants Open Design Course
KASK / School of Arts Ghent offers a course in Open Design for refugees and asylum seekers currently staying in Belgium. The course program focuses on Open Design as a technological and as a cultural, artistic and critical practice. The course method is based on co-creation and peer learning (learning from each other, changing the teacher - student relationship), and puts an emphasis on new media literacy.
This 8-week course is open for refugees, asylum seekers but also “sans papiers” and people who do not have easy access to higher education.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
