Artist publishes 1985 innovative digital art NFTs
Several years before the release of Adobe (NASDAQ 🙂 Photoshop, Alan Tibbetts produced three unique pieces of digital photos at Lightspeed Computers in Boston in 1985. The company that owns graphic imaging software was founded by an artist and entrepreneur, Francis Olshafskie, to use advanced photographers. Subsequently, Alan used the software to develop arts with the new tools provided, as well as his own photographs and news images he had collected from print media.

The inspiration for Alan’s images was drawn from popular events of the time and included hostage-taking terrorists, popular cigarette ads, and a famine in Ethiopia. His work at the time was crude and rudimentary, as digital painting and editing tools were not common and expensive to borrow computer time.
