Commodore 64

Commodore 64: James White

In the late 80s my father got a used Commodore 64, complete with a shoebox full of big black floppy discs loaded with copied games. The best family computer of the era. Even though I had a Nintendo at the time, I spent many hours at the computer desk noodling with games like Othello, Hot Wheels, Henry’s House, Impossible Mission, Jumpman, etc. It even had a primitive poster and banner making program which was my first experience using a computer to make art for me and my friends.

I have many fond memories of the 64, and this art piece, aptly named Commodore 64, pays homage to that great system with it’s hilarious ink-ribbon printer and adorable 2-toned blue screen. You can see a detail here.
