Chris Poole aka “moot” is perhaps best known as the founder of the memetastic imageboard website 4chan. But as it turns out, he is also the founder of Canvas, a website dedicated to remixing media and now the nominal developer of DrawQuest.
Recently released in the App Store, DrawQuest is a surprisingly fun app that challenges you to complete daily drawing quests.
Canvas’ DrawQuest team comments on the launch of the DrawQuest:
Deep down, we’re all creative people. Unfortunately, as Sir Ken Robinson warns us, society is “educating people out of their creativity.” In school, we’re led to believe that creative pursuits won’t lead to a job, while subjects like math and science will. So as we grow up, we grow out of our creative habits.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We built DrawQuest to bring creative expression back into your daily life.
It’s important to note that DrawQuest is not about competition. There is no right or wrong answer to a quest, which may require you to draw something as simple as a smile on a face or as imaginative as your very own superhero.
Adding to the app’s fun factor is the ability to play back your favorite drawings à la Draw Something. You can also show your appreciation to the creators of your favorite drawings by giving stars to their masterpieces.
DrawQuest comes with an easy-to-use set of drawing tools and colors, with more colors to be unlocked using coins earned through active participation in the app.
