Looks great and exactly the kind of thing I like putting on my walls. I have made stuff for display myself, although I do tend to just plagiarise or copy other peoples work into a collage.

Here's a Lotus logo I made with the correct early font, some might find it useful for cutting and pasting into documents or pictures.

His drawing of the T9 transmission might also be of interest.
How about posting a list of his drawings. How big are you willing to let this get?
