Using old software

Bob Staake uses older software its the art that counts...

Bob Staake illustrates children’s books among other commissions. His style has lovely strong shapes and colours. He uses PhotoShop 3.0 and Mac OS 9 in ‘classic’ mode. Does this matter? Would it matter if he used Corel Photo-Draw 4 on Windows 95 provided he could get the drawings off the machine in a format compatible with modern printing? Desktop and laptop computers have been around for a long time now, perhaps they are becoming like tools? [ Via Daring Fireball ]
