Cartoon Hand Wacom Stylus

cartoon hand wacom stylus

This is a subject that I know pretty well – I have looked at it more than almost anything else. It is my hand holding a wacom stylus. People have the idea that computers draw for you. What they don’t understand is that drawing has nothing to do with your hand or the medium you use. Drawing is the process of developing the video-card between your ears and using it to project your ideas onto some visual medium. Drawing and painting with a piece of wood or an airbrush on dead trees is the same process as drawing with pixels of light on a screen. This is a wacom intuos 4 stylus – an old trusty warhorse of a peripheral. Cartoon hand wacom stylus. Vive La Pixels.

Computer Virus

Laptop Virus Monster

Laptop Virus Monster

A computer virus is a malware that, when executed, replicates by reproducing itself or infecting other programs by modifying them. Infecting computer programs can include as well, data files, or the boot sector of the hard drive. When this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then said to be “infected”. This is an illustration of a green gelatinous monster virus destroying a laptop.

BSD Demon Mascot Wearing Beanie

This is the BSD demon mascot. I updated him a little. He is wearing a beanie, some chucks and a blue backpack. This cool and lovable character was designed by John Lasseter. He was trained to be an animator for Disney before he helped found Pixar and he became a billionaire. He graduated from Cal Arts around the same time as Brad Bird and Tim Burton. They all went on to incredibly successful careers in the movie industry. The BSD daemon is named after software daemons, a class of long-running computer programs in Unix-like operating systems, which through a play on words takes the cartoon shape of a mythical demon. The BSD daemon’s nickname Beastie is a slurred phonetic pronunciation of BSD. Beastie customarily carries a trident to symbolize a software daemon’s forking of processes. The FreeBSD web site has noted Evi Nemeth’s 1988 remarks about cultural-historical daemons in the Unix System Administration Handbook: “The ancient Greeks’ concept of a ‘personal daemon’ was similar to the modern concept of a ‘guardian angel’ …As a rule, UNIX systems seem to be infested with both daemons and demons.”[2]

Nuclear Bomb Clipart

Nuclear bomb clipart with a transparent background. This is a North Korean beer keg. It is for end of the world parties. I used to worry about nuclear war when I was a kid. Then I grew up and realized even crazy people aren’t that crazy. Still if someone actually threatens nuclear war – they should be put in front of a firing squad. This is digital clipart of a cartoon nuclear bomb designed for webpages. It is meant for web posts about nuclear war.

Old Mac Computer Cartoon

old macintosh computer cartoon

Technology ages so quickly. It is depressing how fast an expensive piece of hardware becomes absolutely obsolete. The Macintosh Color Classic had the same footprint as the original Macintosh. Mac hardware is made so well that it far outlasts its usefulness as a workstation. This thing had a whopping 16mhz processor, 4MB of ram and a 40MB HDD. Maybe all of those beige boxes from the 90s will one day be collectors items. Old Mac computer cartoon.

My trusty Wacom Intuos 2 has been with me for a long time. It is amzingly tough and sturdy. It is pretty cool to think that I have just about worn out its drawing surface scrubbing it with plastic nibs as I draw and paint. This is a purple wacom stylus character.
