watched Star Wars because of ILM and that Turps article

largely inspired by my friend Maise James' drawing style I think. Drawn on Windows 7 MSPaint.

also watched "Slackers" by Richard Linklater whilst drawing on a Macintosh 1.0 MacPaint emulator. (Those to come soon) This was after reading a chapter in White Noise: An A-Z of the Contradictions in Cyberculture by Andrew Calcutt, he has a chapter called Hackers v Slackers which is a kind of interesting take on the kinds of contrasting stereotypes written about Generation X in the media: the internet simultaneously breeding a dangerous generation of computer hackers posing a threat to international security, v. gamers/listless youth who never leave their bedrooms.

p.s. Also re Starwars and Digital Paint Programs, was reading this:

Martin Constable on Painting & the Digital Remastering of the Blockbuster. Issue 5:
