The first collection of visual artwork appears here as of May 30, 2014. Images of the pieces follow the written details about the artist and the artwork.

Featured Artist: RRam                                                                                                                     Time Period of Artwork: 1980 through 1982

The first, Z Artist Spotlight collection of visual art features the vintage work of RRam. This artwork was created from approximately late 1979 through the first half of 1982. RRam was in high school at that time and took a Commercial Art and Design class, considering Commercial Art as a career.

During that time, there were few computers in the United States plains schools and only one or two computer classes offered. These early high school computer classes were programming–non-art creation classes, as computer graphics was still a very new concept. Only a few artists were experimenting with computer graphics during the decade of the 1970’s.

The following five visual art pieces by RRam appear on Z Artist Spotlight page at as of May 30, 2014:
