Carlos Pardo, also known as Made in the demoscene world, is an highly-skilled graphist on modern platform that initially started on Amstrad CPC. He gave a great (and long) interview to norecess.cpcscene.net.
Indeed, the CPC 6128 was my first computer. All started in 1988, my best friend and neighbor just had a brand new Amstrad 464. The home computing was just starting to go mainstream in France, and Amstrad was hot ! The same year we visited the Amstrad Expo, a huge event with all the new hardware and software, I was just 11, and my mind was blown.
