1-bit rendering of 'Great Wave'

How much do I love this?! James Weiner’s exquisite 1-bit version of Hokusai’s ”The Great Wave” was designed, appropriately, on an early ’90s Mac running System 7 with Aldus SuperPaint 3.0.

This painting has long attracted artists interested in the Great Digitalization — in 1988, our science and tech high school’s gym shirts featured Judy Kirpich’s Wave of the Future which was created, significantly and remarkably, using entirely analog methods.
