At the heart of the OPENSTUDIO experience is the simple act of drawing a picture. With the growing popularity of digital design as an elaborate process, this essential act of drawing is increasingly buried beneath the ever expanding features and menus offered by complex commercial software. OPENSTUDIO's Draw application is designed to be a light-weight, approachable, web-launchable alternative based on a flexible and open software libraries. OPENSTUDIO drawings are constrained to ellipses, lines and polygons, and consequently artists often find innovative solutions to communicate their ideas. An OPENSTUDIO piece is characterized by the artist's craft not the version of the tool used to create it. The sophistication and variety of drawings are evidence of the community's welcome adaptation to the simplicity of the tool.
