Here are the v2.1 files for the drawbot Ive been working on. (The files are below) Special thanks to Laen from http://dorkbotpdx.org/wiki/pcb_order for the help learning to export gerbers and check them with GerbV.
This was inspired by trying to help a friend with some hardware issues with the Makeitlast contest #3. It just turned into a project after all the work that went into it

Thanks to Adafruit for getting me threw the legal jargon for the stuff above.
confirmed working. THE POWER SUPPLY IS TIP POSITIVE ! there is no reverse current protection.
Schematic I should mention just use 1uf ceramic caps I think I messed up their values in the schematic.
Parts list with digikey P/N where available
Board readme This document pertains to an upcoming release of a new firmware and the DBC app. Key mappings are not the same as the firmware below. 10/14/11
quick assembly tips:
- Don’t forget to connect the grounds above the LDO (seen in picture above)
- Put sockets on the PIC, eprom , not the hbridges.
- The led, the flat side is the bottom , if the pcb silk screen is right side up. It is marked with a line.
- PIC pin one faces up . eeprom pin one faces down.
- Solder the ICSP right angle header from the bottom so the pin one indicator is visible as seen above .
- The led will NOT light when power is applied to the (UN-programmed) board , it is not a power indicator but rather a debug led connected to an io pin , controlled by firmware.

Drawbot control app v1 by Jayson Tautic for v1.0 precompiled hex below
Current version 1.0 precompiled hex
The files below are an upgrade to the version 1.0
They do not work properly with Drawbot control at this time.
PIC Firmware first version 1.x
Pre-Compiled hex file (1.x )
pixels used below
It is interesting to me, no one commented on the Right side , how the first line ends , it goes up (and over an extra pixel width each time) .
Here is a short demo of the v2 greenwire board half mounted and working. It has since been mounted to the wall with the motors 6 feet across
