Sketch is a vector drawing program written almost completely in Python for flexibilty (with some modules written in C for speed). Sketch supports some interesting features like gradient fills, clipmasks, text along a path or blend groups and bezier curves. All affine transformations are possible. It has plugins that import or export from different formats, and that can be used a way to define new graphics objects. This package was formerly known as 'sketch.'
