Award winning software creator The Foundry is expanding its market reach while bolstering its tech strength with the acquisition of Made With Mischief. The company’s flagship product, Mischief, is a pen-based sketching application for Mac and Windows.

Under the terms of the deal, Made With Mischief (founded by Sarah Frisken) will become a wholly owned subsidiary of The Foundry and will be headquartered in Boston, with team members also located in London and Shanghai.

Mischief utilizes a revolutionary patented shape representation technology, known as Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields, co-invented by Frisken. The system provides high-quality stroke rendering, extremely responsive drawing thanks to hardware-based rendering, small file sizes, artifact-free scaling, and richer and more complex shapes than are possible with traditional vector-based stroke representations.

Users can purchase the full version of Mischief on the Mac App Store & the Mischief online store for $ 25. The full version of Mischief includes a full color panel with customizable color swatches, customizable brushes and Hotkeys, and a selection of background papers and colors, all on Mischief’s infinite canvas.

To encourage new users, the company will offer Mischief-Free, a new limited-feature edition that is completely free of charge. Mischief-Free includes basic brushes, colors and a full infinite canvas experience. It is ideal for young artists, enthusiasts and anyone with a graphics tablet.
