I started doing digital art in the 90s, using DPaint and Brilliance after borrowing my uncle's Commodore Amiga. Then on the PC I used Adobe Photoshop/ImageReady for various web site design graphics and just general art and design. Over the last 6 years or so, I've been mainly doing free software art and design for projects like KDE, KDE Games, GNOME and general free software themes and customisation. Inkscape and The GIMP are my main tools these days. In the past few years I've more focused on interface design and mock-ups.

Hi all, hope you had a nice Christmas and Santa got you some nice things.  I'll be releasing the Racy theme shortly, now I've actually got around to finishing it. :-D

If you ever wondered, how do I see changes on my themes as I design them? Well, in  order to see the changes in realtime, there are a few things I need to do. Plasma keeps two cache files for the Plasma theme in ~/.cache, they are named accordingly. Every time I make a change in Inkscape, I save it out to the theme folder and then delete the two .cache files, then reapply the theme and this will show the new changes. This allows me to make the themes faster since I can see the changes as I do them. So, the System Settings>Workspace theme>Desktop Theme is always open and a Dolphin window at ~/.cache. I usually have KColourChooser open as well so I can sample colours from themes I do, like from the Windows theme screenshots.

How many of you out there use a sRGB calibrated monitor profile? This means setting your monitor colour setting to sRGB and calibrating it via colour calibration software(and your ICC monitor file) . If you haven't I suggest you do it. If you have an IPS panel then you'll get better colours anyway but TN panels can look washed out. sRGB and a Windows, Linux software calibration really gives nicer more accurate colours rather than the washed out look. Both The GIMP and Inkscape have ICC colour profiles. It's also worth noting that when using sRGB, you might get a lot of red, that's why colour calibration is important so just remove the red while calibrating so your greys don't have red in them.
