I created a few icons that fit the neon cyberpunk style. This includes the SVG files that can be edited in Inkscape or used to replace standard icons. I am using the Sweet-Rainbow, candy Icons, and BeautyLine icons chained but was missing these four so I made them. Enjoy! Download the icons.
Had some downtime and wanted to give Natron a try. It has always ran like shit on the Linux distributions I run so I don’t think I’d use it for big projects but for small clips, like maybe subscribe buttons, it works great. I just hope someone picks up the development again, because I like […]
I find that Krita and/or The Gimp can pretty much do everything I want but one thing they can’t do is provide some of the excellent plug-ins found for Photoshop. If Krita could get Photoshop plug-in support I would imagine it would take a big chuck of Adobe’s end user market. I really don’t want […]
I needed a tool for my wife to resize images for her blog and I found one called Trimage. I wasn’t much fond of it so I wrote my own, it’s fast and stable for only a days worth of coding. To run the code directly you’ll need GObject and PIL, you might want Pillow […]

Update: May 7, 2020. Updated the Asus to Pop! OS 20.04 – fresh install, Steam running Proton 5. The app id for GTA V changed but I was able to do the same basic steps with the exception of installing the video driver. I installed the NVIDIA version of Pop! OS and everything worked fairly […]
Over the many years I have done graphics I have worked on BeOS, Linux, Mac, and Windows. I have software all over the place for all four OSes. On Windows and Mac I think Adobe is the best option by far for the plug-ins, brushes, and ease of use. I switched to OS X as […]
I was working on a Gtk 3 project to roll up all my iPhone videos into a flowbox for easy locating and processing since iPhone doesn’t name things in a meaningful way and photo managers dump things into not so meaningful folders, thumbnails was a must to locate videos easily. Plus, I wanted to do […]
It has been a long time since I checked out Krita. I Painted this in Krita 3.1.1 on Mac Yosemite, versions for Windows as well and of course Linux; all are free. The bird took about six hours, give or take, and the program was not shut down for two days. I had one lock […]
