I am a digital media toolsmith, creating 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 where I for the more than the last decade have been working actively on providing high bitdepths, HDR, CMYK and non-destructive editing and capabilities/possibilities to GIMP - and other software. GIMP does not redistribute donations to developers/contributors; though I do benefit from some reimbursements for travel to GIMP related meetups and conferences, as well as in 2019 for the first time a development laptop.

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/

My postings here are limited to things I think are interesting and newsworthy, even in months when I am not making a posting the ongoing maintainer work on babl and GEGL continue. Work with issues in gitlab, integrating work from others and at least a handful releases of babl and GEGL each year.

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 spending my time on.

Many people use or benefit from the code I give away, many small contributions do add up.

Thanks

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
You might get a chance to see images/drafts of concepts/proofs of concept before the rest of the world.
Institution
$128 or more per month
If you work for an institution with budget for software and tools used; please consider contributing to the sustainability of your toolbox.
Goals
$1,020 of $2,048 per month
I'd be comfortable having running cost for housing, food and some travel and entertainment.
