Misery Competition

All of the posted links are SFW.

I feel like I really did a lame thing this week in not really pushing the boundaries of what I could do. The topic is the 1980's. For whatever reason I just couldn't think of anything to do. Which is retarded because there's so many different things you can do. So much creativity came out of the Reaganomics depression.

Anyways, what I came up with is based off of a SKEME piece. I saw it on a documentary called Style Wars that kind of blew my mind and ruined my perceptions.

Here's the original piece:

And here's my version from the safety of my sketchbook, which is why I feel like it's a cop out. I should have gotten out and wrote in the city. Instead I did this from the safety of my couch while watching football.

The best part about SKEME is that he's still writing.

    Borrowed theme, but freakin sweet that you pay homage and it's complimentary. Details, nice that the skyline reflects true to that time somewhat.
