|“The thing that I like most about doing this kind of
art on the Amiga is that it looks like my work.”
Long term Amiga users will remember the unveiling of the
Commodore A1000 on July 23rd 1985 at the New York Lincoln Centre.
As part of the demonstration of the Amigas ability Commodore
invited Andy Warhol to create a portrait of Debbie Harry, lead
singer of Blondie using Island Graphics Graphicraft. This was
accompanied by a full score synthesised by Roger Powell and Mike
Boom, author of Musicraft.
The interview is scanned from the January/February 1986 of the
US magazine and saved in JPEG format. Hopefully the former
publishers of Amiga World will not mind reproduction of this piece
of Amiga history.
