Had some dinner with Neal (subpar) at Otto's Tacos and went to a fonttalk at Cooper with K. The talk was the dude who worked on Obsidian, a face made partially by some python automation he made to render a sensible Lambert-law sort of lighting model as strokes of varying thickness. The instrumentation apparently let them tweak lighting/rendering parameters on a per-glyph and even per-glyph-component basis. Like, if they noticed the middle stroke of the ampersand wasn't contrasty enough, they could fake-adjust the position of the light source so it popped a little better.
