I am a digital media toolsmith, working with the creation of both tools and infrastructure to aid creation of my own and others artistic and visual digital media experiments. I am the maintainer and lead developer of GIMPs next generations engine, babl/GEGL - infrastructure libraries providing high bitdepth, HDR and soon non-destructive editing and further capabilities to GIMP - and other software. GIMP does not redistribute donations to developers/contributors - but my patreon donations have in the last year covered basic needs.

By being my patron you will support and encourage my continued work improving, documenting and disseminating existing and ongoing research, experiments and development of various technical and creative projects that aid creative expression.

I enjoy figuring out how to make computers treat visual, and other media in new or interesting ways. Ranging from graphics and audio processing through user interfaces to data structures for media representation. You can find a portfolio of past and present projects at http://pippin.gimp.org/

With sufficient support I am able to be confident in sharing more code and experiments, as well as sustain myself between the few contracts that arise aligned with the direction and needs of projects I am involved in.

Many people use or benefit from the code I give away, many small contributions do add up. NOTE: if you want to pay with EUR https://liberapay.com/pippin/ is an option that might be more cost effective - unless you already provide patronage to others on patreon.

At almost the monthly cost of one app from creative cloud, I will add your name to a text file I might use as input for rendering visual examples of algorithms and more.
Sneak peeks and more
$16 or more per month 16 patrons
You might get a chance to see images/drafts of concepts/proofs of concept before the rest of the world.

If you work for an institution with budget for software and tools used; please consider contributing to the sustainability of your toolbox.

I'd thrive, have funds for buying replacement equipment/computers and can participate in cultural and artistic workshops.
