inkscape + gimp
I recently installed ←Inkscape, which is a nice GNU vector graphics program. Been playing around w/it a bit, and realized it's perfect for an experiment I've been wanting to try, mimicking digitally the way I build monoprints with layers. Its "trace bitmap" function is actually rather nicer than Flash's (I've never used Illustrator). So here is the first attempt. I also rewrote the markup for my galleries. No more tables, they're now unordered lists, which I think makes more sense. They look pretty much the same, though.
