Sometimes some people ask me why I use saturated colors frequently in my drawings, instead of cute and elegant pastel colors. I think that reminds me that when I was a kid in the second half of the 80s almost all "Rad" clothes were fluorescent colors. I don't know if it was derived from culture pop itself, the artists and their clothes, from glam and their colored hairs, from Punk and their previous XD colored hairs, from rock-themed comics or what. But the fact is that if you wanted to be fashionable you had to wear clothes with colors whose vibrancy would make you visible from space. And yes, I liked it, I admit it! But I'm glad it's over, I like to have my photoreceptor cones working.
