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* :inkscape: forum has launched! Come start a conversation with fellow beginners, artists, designers, makers, educators, and more!

After a long sleep, a new post on OSP blog! The report of the Libre Graphics Meeting by @manetta with the question of the word "open" by @aiscarvalho and @rlafuente, , and new curves for , and inside. @lgm

I completely forgot to mention due to... well... this month, but my talk at #lgm on #teaching #art using #floss software is now up for anyone who missed it.

#artWithOpenSource #opensource #lgm2019

One of the most inspiring talk, for me, from the Libre Graphics Meeting this year is available online:

"Making Fonts without Font Editors" by @aiscarvalho and @rlafuente

#font #teaching #typography #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.

I finally got to meet and hang out with the one and only @prokoudine while at LGM this year and it was awesome! (My biggest fanboy moment!) Here’s an interview I did with him about PIXLS.US over at

Je suis allé au Libre Graphics Meeting, début juin, à Saarebruecken, pour rencontrer les développeurs de darktable, en particulier Johannes Hanika, son fondateur, et Tobias Ellinghaus, son deuxième plus gros contributeur. On a discuté de l’aveni

I did a little workshop at #LGM19 this year called "When In Doubt, Print it Out". We had a lot of fun playing with bar-code scanners and small receipt printers. I finally got around to tidying and documenting things enough to make public:

If you're doing work with #screenless interaction and #smallprinters it might be a useful starting point.

I'm enjoying mastodontery noticeably more since I got back from #LGM19 and added a bunch more #lgm people to my feed. Artists and designers are a lot less negative than engineers. (Even type designers, who are capable of being a pretty grouchy bunch when left to their devices)
