EMAIL-A-TRON-1K

Here’s a fun piece I did for the Illustration Friday topic “old-fashioned”. I spent some time trying to think about what that means to me. At first, I was thinking about creating a robot made of stone or wood, which I think is a fine idea. Finally, it came to me. My computer science education has taught me a lot about how quickly technology becomes old-fashioned. This machine here, is the iPad of the late 1970’s. That’s about 30 years ago. Not much time if you really think about.
