Neil, your bed's on fire...

I'm not sure if I'm dating myself by my choice of subject matter with this one... You younger folk may not remember the day when MTV actually had half-way decent programming, but in the early 80's it was the only place to witness "The Young Ones", a British comedy to delight the impressionable and psychopathic alike...

I did this piece as a submission for an upcoming art show entitled "80s POP!" which will take place June 5th ("First Friday") in Olde City Philadelphia at Brave New Worlds Comics, on N. 2nd street between Market and Arch streets. Hope to see you there!

I used to watch this show when I was young and innocent back in early 80's. Censorship would kill this show now!

Wow, that's an amazing cover design you've done!
I especially like the way it looks a little old and worn, to go with it being sort of retro.
Perfect down to the last detail, bravo. :clap:
And a great subject matter, heh. ;)

Love this piece. Not many people know of the young ones so it is always great to see this much work go into a forgotten favorite.

This is the greatest thing in the history of anything. Damn, and here I was thinking "Holy crap, is that a real comic somewhere out in the world?!" Why can't this be real!

Fantastic caricatures!
