The Refuse Newsletter #4
A NOTE.

A NOTE

Hi again, :). Happy Sunday!

This is the fourth newsletter I'm sending out. It's not a huge thing; but I'm still grateful that I can send this out at this currently-established bi-weekly schedule. I haven't had the time to work on a lot of things lately, so I'm grateful that this newsletter is one I can still keep going. I hope to send this out at shorter intervals in the future (weekly).

I have a few experiments that I haven't touched in two months. I might share those in the next issue—or the one after that—after I have refamiliarized myself with whatever absurdities I was working on at the beginning of this year.

❤️, Yash.

OKLAB FOR PROCESSING

OKLAB FOR PROCESSING

Two months ago, I wrote and released a library for Processing (java).

It was built over a new color space created by Björn Ottosson.

The library includes a small collection of functions to help you pick colors with perceptual accuracy. This works in contrast to generating colors using RGB or HSB values, in which similar difference in input values don't represent similar difference in color output.

If you're familiar with Processing, you can find my library from within the Processing IDE.

The source code is available on GitHub.

To learn more about the issue this library attempts to solve, read this article by Björn Ottosson about how computers get color wrong.

STUFF I MADE THIS WEEK

Tomorrow will be the last day of 36 Days of Type, which I have been keeping up with for 35 days in a row now. Here's how I approached this year's edition of 36 Days of Type, minus the digit '9' (which I will draw tomorrow):
