Who Are We?
Currently, FunDraw.com has no employees, just its creator wearing many hats. So who are we? We are Greg. Resistance is futile.
How FunDraw.com Came To Be
Oddly enough, I started out to create an inspirational quotes site, doing a whole viral thing with cool quotes in soothing animations. It was to be called "One Minute Inspirations". I spent weeks poring through collections of quotes, trying to find just the right ones.
But, since I was trying to make a go of building web sites for fun and profit, I also had to figure out ways to make a little money from it.
I thought some people might connect with a quote enough that they'd enjoy having it on a t-shirt, coffee mug, or bumper sticker. But creating 800 t-shirt designs was a huge task. And then, what if someone loved the quote but hated my design?
Wouldn't it be great if people could design their own?... BOING! A lightbulb flashed in my head.
So the thought then turned to how to make something simple enough that someone who wasn't tech or design savvy could make something they'd love in 5-10 minutes, but with enough power under the hood to let people get adventurous too. The result is FunDraw.com.
It cost me 10% of my hair going grey over 6 very long months, some cash (mainly for equipment and clipart - all the programming is either my code or open-source code), and a few sleepless nights. But here it is, in all its splendor (or lack thereof). I hope you like it, that you'll come back, and that you'll tell your friends.
