January, A sea of tiles. Inspired by hand-painted Portuguese tiles I tried to convey its non-perfect and yet humanistic details while highlighting, here and there, individual tile pieces that come together as little geometric fishes.

Oh my! GIMP has now layer support for TIFF (thanks Tobias Ellinghaus from ) and a revamped Curves tool interface control+click to add a point that snaps to the current curve, adding sharp point instead of soft and even the point selection that seems to be much better (it tries to select without changing its position)

Well done and thanks @GIMP

@inkscape workshop was really cool. Learn some tricks wrt alpha version; exchange techniques and shortcuts and most of all we could express and influence the upcoming version! The developers really listened and were eager to share and discuss. And play with amusing laser cuts toys by Jürgen Weigert ❤️. devs were there as well and so I couldn't resist but show my appreciation by giving to every developer (present) from these lovely tools ❤️🤩 THANK YOU!

#lgm19 Presentation after that was someone suggesting that the open source graphics community should consider coming up with certification process for the floss art programs, so that there's a way for artists to show proficiency with the components without just showing pretty pictures.

It seemed this is also to have some kind of alternative to university degrees, esp. for self-taught people or dropouts.

Really enjoy Tatica's talk and her idea for a design/art academy/certificate for libre artists/designers @libregraphicsmeeting source

So interesting talk by Ana Isabel and Ricardo Lafuente ❤️ terminology is indeed important!

The first time I tried Linux out was with @kde with or even but since then somehow I drifted away (either from Linux altogether) or to a more Gnome based distros these last years. But let me tell you how well impressed I am with the current . After trying it out on Neon and Kubuntu live flash drive it's now my default DE! I urge you to try it out as well. Plus it made my battery last an extra hour or so.

On 25th of this month, April, we celebrate the Day (which commemorates the revolution) and so in that spirit I have been thinking to release all the illustrations and possibly layouts (need to review them first though) under some license. Any thoughts? And where would be the best place to host the files?
