Retro Scan of the Week: Weller’s Psychedelic Apple II Painting

August 7th, 2006 by Benj Edwards
Apple II Painting

This incredible Apple II-themed painting was scanned from the cover of a small 1982 brochure titled, “Your Guide To Apple Service And Support.” I personally think it’s an excellent piece of art, apparently by an artist named “Weller.” Weller, if you find this, please drop me a line and let me know if you did any more computer-related paintings.

Great stuff. It reminds me of Peter Max.

    It is great piece of work, but I hesitate to mention the unintended funny thought I instantly got when I saw the rainbow and the very “happy” gentlemen. Hmmmnnnn…

    …not to mention the holepunch, is it?

    I thnk it’s a pair of pliers, Sharktar. 🙂

    And since when does having a hole punch make you gay? I better talk to our publishing department.

    Haha, you know it does look like a pair of pliers. My mind must have been in the gutter. Not that there is anything wrong with that…
