This was done about a year ago now and i had forgotten about it. It features Ludd the Barbarian (from the word luddite) who, frustrated by his inability to get the computer to do what he wants, deals with it in the only way he knows how. I'm sure we've all felt like that at some point :) It was drawn in photoshop - I am particularly pleased with the way he turned out and little details like the texture on the chair cushion and, although you cant see it on this smaller version, the keyboard has all the correct letters and words on it.

wow this is GREAT!! and i definitly like it
i found this quote once it goes "You must realize that the computer has it in for you. The irrefutable roof is that the computer always does what you tell it to do." thought it was funny
but does he have only one arm?
