Miklos Legrady - Vintage Digital



"An 18th century funeral cortege, filled with guns? Seems like cause for concern.
Is the dreamer the violent one, or is the danger external? Either way, it's bad news"

When I saw this project, made with a 1990 Mac Classic program called Superpaint, I went back to Tom Moody's animation archive to look at these again:

Nice! As someone who has a reputation as a retro-tech nerd, however, I have to point out the error in the statement "Computers at that time did not have color or even a grayscale."
By 1987, even Macintosh computers had colour. (but most people couldn't afford it!)

Thanks--as you can see I started working with those 1-bit grid patterns again. I just realized the RGB sliders in MS Paintbrush (monochrome mode) line up as a single vertical cursor and sweep through all the shades one step at a time.

The Legrady images would have been a good addition to the Infinite Fill Show. I like the combination of ambitious and clunky.

A link to Tom's more current 1 bit images. I love all that peculiar articulation for shade in those tools. (I have to play with them one of these days, but I'm enjoying what other people can do with them.)

I finally figured out that there was a search function on the DMT image bank.

Here's a sexy piece from Joe Mckay from the same show:

Love that black and white stuff. We should do the whole blog without colour for a while.

I did greyscale for a week until artfag released a new issue and it inspired me to sparkly rainbows and unicorns.

So instead, lets do porn without for a week.

do porn without, do porn within.

meant porn without colour, my keyboard is missing whole words. Needs cleaning.

I just realized how disgusting that would read if I was a guy.

At a studio I worked in, a security guard was downloading porn late at night. The woman, who's computer was being used noticed a lot of new strange files, so they set up a web cam sting to catch the guy. And, of course, for months afterwards I tormented her by constantly asking "what's that stuff on your screen?" "why does your keyboard stick?"
