Trying out custom-printed minky on the tiny dragons. What better for an alignment test than tiger stripes? Came out almost perfect (one foreleg and the forehead are just a smidge off), so I dialed the neon color down a bit and placed another order with more designs.
It is *really* nice to be able to draft a pattern in Inkscape, create the fabric design to match it in Inkscape, and create the computer-controlled sewing file... in Inkscape.
So, I went on a trip to Portugal, and took pretty pictures. Enjoy!
Last year I discovered the joy of using masking fluid with watercolour paints and in this little experiment I really went to town with it! All the lines are made by painting masking fluid, then adding a layer of watercolour, then repeat adding darker layers each time. Peeling off the masking fluid is incredibly satisfying.
Here's my new minimalist creative coding playground!
pdfimages works by having a fake output device that ignores all draw calls expect for images, which get to be redirected into files, then the PDF is rendered onto that, page by page
And for a hidden element, poppler is of course not issuing draw call. So the hidden map versions that are in the interactive maps won't get exported
Mein Verhalten wurde unlängst fälschlicherweise als ungestüm bezeichnet.
Mein Einwand, dass es sich um gestümes Verhalten handele, wurde wegen angeblicher Nichtexistenz des Prädikats „gestüm“ abgelehnt.
Ich möchte hiermit in aller Entschiedenheit der Nichtexistenz des Wortes „gestüm“ entgegentreten und ihm sogar einen Hashtag zur Seite stellen.
So möge man fortan immer dann, wenn man ruhig und überlegt trötet den Hashtag #gestüm verwenden!
helo if you’ve been following us for a while you may already have the powderpaint EP and be waiting for the next one (new singles coming very soon!!), but if not, today, being bandcamp friday, where 100% proceeds go to the artist, is the day to do it
What with the inexorable march of time etc, I find it harder to change focus from near to far.
These glasses have refocusable lenses (from some horrible cheap dial-eye specs), a couple of little linear servos to drive them, and a couple of endoscope camera modules to track my eyes.
The focus is adjusted based on where my eyes are converging.
The makers of @pixelfed, the Fediverse photo sharing platform, have just created a slick new guide to the Fediverse at:
It's got a list of Fedi projects, a list of mobile apps for Fedi platforms and an opt-in directory of people to follow.
The directory is particularly interesting as it works very differently to FediFollows or Trunk. You add hashtags to your profile plus a special extra hashtag #Fedi22, then submit your profile to the site, and it will become searchable for the tags in your profile.
(And, yes, Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, see here for details: https://mstdn.social/@feditips/108215973331591896)
I like robots, obsolete technology, and terrible puns.
