The pinnacle of technology in the
late 70s for graphic artists and illustrators was the AirBrush.
Badger introduced Air-Opaque and Air-Tex acrylic
airbrush paints while I was at Pratt. Wonderful, well
-behaved stuff. But
the mechanics of compressors, valves,
regulators, water traps, and keeping the damn things clean was....
to put it politely, challenging.
However, if I did this cartoon today, I suspect Technology
would get a rather different treatment. See comment in ArtStuff.
