I have the hobby of color

This was the main and largest gallery at my old websites and then

The oldest content of the gallery dates back to 1999, the past century.

As I explain in the “About” page the time were very different, PCs had incredibly less power and memory than now, and software we used were also less powerful.
The PC monitors we used had a standard resolution of 800X600 pixels so the images of the graphic art galleries were created with those PCs and for those PCs and their standard resolution.

Consider also that the internet was something new and not for everyone, the connection speed was a fraction of the current one, we had 56 kbps modems and no wifi, while today the average connection speed is 1000 times that one or more.

Laetitia Casta in her early 20s was one of the most famous supermodels, with a huge number of magazine covers, and was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, you can see at this link:

She bacame a global sex symbol, like the other beautiful french woman Brigitte Bardot in the 50s and 60s.

Laetitia gave a twist to her career becoming an actress, but she did not reach in this other activity the top of the international success she had as a model, she was successful mainly in her native country, France. She also performs in plays at the theater.

Personally I consider young Laetitia one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen and loved making graphic art works on the pictures of her I considered more interesting.

Here they are, I tried to recover the original images I used to let you see the difference between the original picture and my version of it with graphic art, I also added some explanation about the art work I did.
