Four Chan Creator Designs Social iPad Drawing App
Draw Quest created by start-up genius Chris Poole challenges tablet owners to draw a new picture every day.
A new iPad app, Draw Quest, can help users rediscover their hidden creative side…and maintain this rhythm on a daily basis. The app, conceived by entrepreneur Chris “moot” Poole of 4chan and Canvas fame, was inspired by the latter as the ‘drawing challenge’ element was rather popular with participants. Poole was named as part of Time magazine’s Most Influential Person online in 2008, so it ought to be a noteworthy project.
DrawQuest maintains this initial idea, but makes it the entire focus of the app rather than a small portion of it. The game allows would-be doodlers to build a community while striving to become better at iPad sketching. Those who download the free app will be posed with a new question or idea every day, which they must draw and submit. They can then view how others have interpreted the same prompt and, in a similar fashion to Facebook, ‘like’ particular images, or reach out to their originators if they so choose.
