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)

@tomsart pusblished his Libre Graphics Meeting recap on his website. Check it out:

Bonjour les Mastonautes.

Est-ce que vous auriez de bons tutoriaux pour #Inkscape ?
