Showdown in Cybertown

What I remember about this piece was that I did it for one of the internet and computer magazines I was illustrating for in the early to mid-90s. One of the mags was "Visual Basic World" which one or two of my friends might remember. They told me to do a cute theme where a pair of Wild West characters faced off in the main street of Cybertown and drew their weapons - computer mouses. The winner is Visual Basic and you can see the logo on his shirt. I still don't know what Visual Basic was but it's obsolete now, "declared legacy" as the article says. I have the published work in my magazine collection somewhere.

"Showdown in Cybertown" is ink and watercolor on illustration board, 8" x 11", early to mid 1990s.
