Rockin' the Retro Spectrum by ArixSterling Rockin' the Retro Spectrum by ArixSterling
Here's my entry for the 8-Bit Design Challenge! I tried to make it nice and colorful as well as fashionable.

The inspiration for this was, actually,in a moment when I found myself thinking retrospectively. While I was mulling over ideas for my theme I found myself thinking about my first computer, an old Windows 3.1 from about 1993. It had the ancestor of the Paint program loaded onto it, and I can clearly remember being a child and playing with it, scribbling in pixels for hours on end (hence the old-style computer on the hand-warmer).

Flash forward to the present day, where one can use high-tech programs to illustrate in 1200x1600 resolution, and interface with the most sensitive tablets...it's a little overwhelming.

So thank you, Windows 3.1, for inspiring me to make this shirt in honor of our time together as I first explored the pioneering technology of digital art, back in the good old days

Done by me, on GIMP software.

Please, if you would be so kind, click that little "I'd Wear This" button in the upper right, next to the favorite button, if you really enjoy it! I hope it brings back a little nostalgia in everyone that views it.
