Atari ST Humour

I.C. - Cherries (1989)I might as well make it an Atari ST trilogy while I'm down Memory Lane. I created some weird graphics on that old computer, often adapting and combining other graphics, as in this case. Cherries (1989) shows a primitive robot trying to figure how to switch on the latest model android! I was so fond of the Atari ST that I got through three in 10 years. I thought they were all dead, but....

Cool work,

- and pretty impressive considering the primitive nature of graphic programs at the time.

I remember dabbling with an Amiga 500 and Deluxe Paint back in ye late 1980's

Do you still work with computer graphics today?

Hi, Lennard

Thanks for the compliment.

Yes, Im still tinkering with graphics. Virtually every picture I post on Coxsoft Art News has been adapted in some way. Mostly it's just a case of shrinking a graphic to the size I want (200 pixels wide or 400 pixels for a wide picture) and maybe twiddling the gamma settings to make the picture clearer. I also reduce file sizes to get them under 10Kb, so they load onscreen quickly. Occasionally I get stuck into a graphic. Search my blog for Mrs Mop for my "scoop" on Niaomi Campbell doing her community service!

If you visit my website, you'll loads of menu icons I designed myself.
