Hand-Drawn Look in Canvas Drawing App

Category: Canvas

Steve Hanov has produced a Canvas-based drawing tool with a hand-drawn look. Lines can be drawn with a “sloppiness” option, with possible values “Draftsman”, “Artist”, “Cartoonist”, “Child”, and – perfect for this time of year – “Drunk” :). The FG Virgil font, applied to text elements, adds to the cartoon vibe.

The techniques are used in a C library for WebSequenceDiagrams, which Steve explained in an older blog post, but here he’s done it with Javascript and Canvas.

Nice work.

This could be very useful for making the distinction between an active and a draft workflow in a workflow diagramming tool.

Very cool app. “Drunk” style is definitely the way to go :)

P.S. Spam filter malfunctioning guys?
