Roger Frames’ farewell

Art, Cartoons

I’ve been trawling through cobweb-encrusted areas of computer hard drives and come across the cover artwork for the last-ever issue of Commodore Format. Featuring Roger Frames and his dog Debit doing the classic walk into the sunset.

The sun set on the C64 in 1995. Ah, but did it ever, really?

Uniquely, this Roger Frames artwork was produced in Adobe Illustrator instead of the usual ink and watercolour on board. I can’t remember the reason for this.

It might have been my reluctance to get out the inks to airbrush all that background area: my home studio in 1995 was a very small room in which most of it was taken up by a computer system!
