Dredging up old images from the “Unprofessional” section of my old site c.2005-2008:
Early Mac Art
The Year: 1989
The Machine: Apple Macintosh IIcx with 608030 processor, 5 MB of RAM, 40 MB HD, 12” monitor displaying 256 colors at 640 x 480 pixel resolution.
The Software: A combination of Hypercard, MacPaint, and ImageStudio, a grayscale paint program (Photoshop hadn’t yet been released).
One of the appealing things about making pictures on the computer was that the cumbersomeness of the rectangular mouse with the dirty ball and boogery rollers guaranteed unintended and sometimes primitive results, along with the repeated application of filters and effects.
All art is shown at original resolution.
