Recently I've been looking at Povray, pyprocessing, and cfdg (version 3.0) as tools for creating digital images. I have branched two separate blogs where I mainly explore jruby + processing and

Alhambra Tiling (for CFDG Version 3.0) as Context Free Rules

The new Version of Context Free Art program is at version 3.0 alpha. The new syntax supports tuples in path/shape definition. Anything defined in the shape definition is new syntax, old path is still supported inside path (except when path is nested?). Definitions are now allowed, as is a new loop syntax, parameters are supported but I haven't got that far yet with my experiments. Update 26 June 2011 now includes changed syntax (since V12 linux), and is more precisely tesselated.
