“My Eighties” This brightly colored graphic painting with bold colors and heavy lines brings together some of my childhood influences. Making mix-tapes and listening to them on my Sony Walkman, playing arcade games like Pac-man or forever fidgeting with a Rubik’s Cube. The background is made up by one of my all time favorite vinyl records, The Circus by Erasure. This piece is brought together with a Pop-Art style set of bold red lips in the foreground by Graphic Artist Alan C Drummond.

Vector Vs Painting
After completing ‘My Eighties’ inspired painting I decided to see if I could recreate it in a vector. I did not scan the original picture or use auto-trace, its all redrawn from scratch.
