How can I set I custom font, currently I know how to set a font,
let's say I have a Canvas element (ctx).

Now, I to switch the font I do:

fontName = "Arial"
fontSize = 10


but let's say I have a .ttf file, how would I go about importing a font from a .ttf file, in the same, or child folder, in python?
