andy warhol uses an amiga computer

andy warhol paints his very first digital portrait of debbie harry using an amiga, the "new media computer", at the product launch in 1985. the amiga was distinctive because it was the first computer to be marketed to creative thinkers and artists (as opposed to microsoft's number crunching men in white suits). soon after it's launch, the amiga was used by disney and spielberg in babylon 5 and star trek. fast forward fourteen years and this andy warhol photoshop effect comes stock on nearly every computer.
