Inkscape - Ubuntu art tools (Wiki)

Open source Inkscape is an evolving and increasingly capable vector illustrator, comparable to (but probably not yet quite at the level of) Illustrator and CorelDraw. It seems to be modeled most closely on the user interface of CorelDraw, which isn't a bad thing at all. The latest version (0.45 as of this writing) has added a very nice SVG blur function - you can add blur to nearly any vector object, which gives it a very nice drop shadow capability, a big advance. Some very beautiful illustrations are possible with this package.
