I like the elegance of 9... I also like the "natural" feel of 6. There we go, I'm choosing one from each group. Sorry. I have an appreciation for both technical perfection and crude organic movement. As an aside... if it gets narrowed down further instead of a clear winner, it would be nice to see the phrase in a couple different languages for aesthetic purposes. Also... don't forget it's "Draw Freely." which includes a period.
