‘Data’s Little Girl’: a Cute Illustration of a Floppy Disk Father and Daughter
Remember floppy disks? It’s been so long since we’ve seen those in use that they feel like antiques from another century. Inspired by the ancient floppy disks, Dallas-based artist David Soames created a cute illustration of a loving father-daughter floppy disk pair. The father, a mustached 5 1/4-inch floppy disk, is shown hugging his little girl, a 3 1/2 inch diskette.
This cute homage to the once-revolutionary piece of technology, along with more of Soames’ work, can be purchased as prints, smartphone cases, and apparel at Society6.
