Retro Computer Art

Thought I'd cook up a thread here for retro computer artwork, specifically of cool old machines. I will do my best to credit and attribute everything I find, though there is every possibility I may not get that right every time. If you see something I've credited wrong, let me know!

To kick it off, here's a beauty by a Mr. Gregory S. Martin in 1993. Running a few searches didn't turn up much about the guy or his work, unfortunately, so I'm not sure if there's anything more like this from him out there.

The cover art from German publication "Happy Computer" for July of 1987. Really like this one!



The magazine itself is archived HERE, for those interested. It's in German, but the pictures make it worthwhile I think.

I have found a few more, mostly from Tumblr. No attributes to them, so I don't know much about any of these... except that they are cool!

I would really love posters of this art! I don't know how hard posters are to make, but would be cool if there was a custom poster service on Etsy.

I keep trying to find really high resolution versions of these (the posted ones are downscaled by Gyazo so they display right on whatever device is reading the site here) because if we can get high enough resolution master files, I know for sure that both DigiCopy and Spectra Print in Point can make them at a couple different sizes- and that's just here locally. The biggest hassle is probably getting the copyright clearance, which is especially sticky as I don't even know the artists for some of these.

Do keep a tally of what you're looking for though- where there is a will, there is a way. ;)
