4chan Founder Chris Poole Releases DrawQuest, an App Designed to Inspire Creativity
DrawQuest, a new iPad app from 4chan founder Chris Poole (also known as moot), aims to combine art creation with social interaction via daily drawing challenges.
Building on his experience with Canvas, an HTML 5 application designed to allow users to share and remix media, Poole designed the app to help people express themselves through art.
DrawQuest is billed as a free drawing community designed exclusively for the iPad. The app, which requires users to sign up, presents a drawing challenge each day. With included tools, users are asked to complete quests, which include enhancing a base image.
A new image template is added daily, and after finishing a challenge, users can view the work of other artists, watching playback, sharing an image on social networks, and starring favorites. Drawings are entirely public - there's no option for private sharing.
In an interview with The Verge, Poole reveals that his inspiration for DrawQuest came from Canvas users who were too intimidated to use the image creation tools. With prompts, Poole believes he can inspire creativity with constraints.

I'll buck the trend: I think it sounds different from what's been done, quite possibly fun, and certainly worth the experiment.

It's something for free, can't complain.
Except if that something is Flash, then I can complain.

Seems like some people have lost the ability to think different.
How bad can something that might inspire creativity be?
Much more innovative than buggering up an iGizmo fron 64GB to 128GB.
Maybe someday there'll be an app to inspire creative responses to unusual apps.
