Commodore 64

    Newer Older

    Anyone who had a Commodore 64 with a shoebox full of floppy discs with 1000 illegitimate games knows what this one is about.

    I've been sizing up old Commodore ads for a while now and really wanted to do a piece showcasing the system and it's many rainy Sunday afternoons spent playing Impossible Mission, Jumpman and Rambo.

    This is 18" x 24". Buy the print here.

      i never had a commodore, but I did have a Microdigital TK90, which it was a clone of the Sinclair Spectrum here in Argentina (made in Brazil, i think). A great machine!, with a lot of games in cassettes! :)
      I was little, but I have great memories of that computer.

      Anyway, great work with that poster :)

      Love it, partly because of your execution, partly because of nostalgia :)

      Great stuff. You really captured the exciting Eighties atmosphere of futuristic laser-like glowing beams, announcing the computer revolution that had started.

      I dug this right away, and it also made me think of, in addition to the beloved C=64, another '80s cultural moment.
