PS: We welcome any additions to TOOLS.md

I'm posting this here for my own accountability! I plan on submitting something. I want to merge evolutionary algorithms centered around image manipulation and perhaps a poem or something nice layered on top of it.

I'm enjoying learning about the Sketching library, it seems to be a rather powerful tool. I'm coming from Ruby/Python-land, so it's going to be a bumpy road but I enjoy the occasion to make something creative and intentionally non-commercial.

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
