Okay, back from Birmingham convention.
Those interested in having choosing an open font to replace the "Draw Freely" tagline from Google's massive list of awesome open script fonts, go here:

You can click on a font in the list to preview, or use the left and right arrow keys scroll through them.
You can additionally use the up and down arrow keys to increase/decrease the size of the fonts.
Clicking the share link which updates at the bottom of the font information will copy the size and font number variables for the current font into the page URL, which you can then collect, and post on this thread as your preference.

This works in Chrome and Firefox. If your font list is scrolling along with your up and down arrow keys, just click on the inkscape icon to make it stop. :)

This isn't the pinnacle of elegant code, so don't judge me. ;P
My hope is that it will be useful enough to make it easier to choose an alternative font for "Draw Freely".

Please let me know which are your favourites, and I'll make a master list.

Thanks. :)

Don't get me wrong though, one can definitely draw in Inkscape. I did this illustration a few years ago in Inkscape. This is what I would consider "Drawing": http://opendesignstudio.org/inkscape/samples/emmawolf.png

Yea, still doesn't seem like drawing to me... oh well. ;)

Probably got the audio handled. I'm recording the sound effects myself with my h4n field recorder mic (very high quality sound), and then editing with audacity. I have most of them, I just need to finish the "Draw Freely" sample page so we can vote on the font used for "Draw Freely". that's almost done too, but my work has overlapped the weekend for a trade show in Birmingham (spent most of the day driving, and then setting up), so it's been difficult to make as much progress as I'd have likes to. A little more gets done every day though. Oh, by the way, all our display graphics I did in Inkscape, as well as the packaging, etc. etc. So our success here at the convention is also yours! :)

Thanks for the offer to help. If you have suggestions for sound effects you'd like to see, feel free to post links. :)

Drawing up plans :-P

Do you need any help with the audio sound effects for the tutorial intro
and outro?
