Since @HackerRadioShow was preempted tonight, for the heck of it here's a thread of portraits of old computers I painted 10 years ago. More info on each computer and why I painted it can be found in each image's descriptive text.

The Apple IIGS, Commodore 64, and Commodore PET.

The CDC 6600, the Cray-1 supercomputer, and my beloved childhood machine the TRS-80 Color Computer 2.

Finishing up with some classic toys: Computer Space, Speak & Spell, the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Nintendo Game Boy.

I painted this series as thank-you gifts for people who donated to WBAI during a specific fundraiser, so they all reside in private collections now. Thanks again to all who have supported WBAI and @HackerRadioShow over the years!

Photo of the artist as a decade-younger man. I think I'm aging fairly well, but I should probably paint more. (CW: EC)
