Graphics Library and building a simple GUI

Can anyone tell me how (or what to use) to build a simple GUI on an embedded Linux system?

I am using the Linux distribution Angstrom with a gcc compiler, and need to draw graphics on the screen. Preferably NOT in X11, but in a console only image.

Are there simple graphics commands in C that will draw circles, boxes, and lines?

Perhaps you should look at the framebuffer.
