NO...I didn't say take me back to the eighties! by toegar NO...I didn't say take me back to the eighties! by toegar
I said, "take me back to the ladies...the girls...Oh never mind!"

Hello, here, on the wire, is my submission to the Minion art contest.  A great great movie and to have the chance to win big money to help on our up coming baby is a huge motivation.  But really without coloring and cleaning it a bit more I really have zero chance.  But you know it's all good because I love, love DM 2.  I laughed out loud, once I was brought to tears I laughed so hard.  They did things with the Minions you didn't expect and sometimes it just hit you out of the blue or purple...that's why I did the 80's thing as it was more of tribute to the creators and writers for adding those random things that made me laugh... anyway See this movie or see it again it is really worth it. 

Can you name all the 80's Icon I put in?  I know much different than my commissions of late but a fun change.  Tell me what you think...only wish I could have colored it....oh well.

Really love Prince and the Greatest American Hero.

Other than those and what's been mentioned... I see some Goonies, a Tri-Lamb, Han Solo, Marty & Doc, Terminator, Ghostbusters, Airwolf, Indiana Jones, Mr. T, Devo, Billy Idol, Madonna.

Pretty stumped on the rest, but had fun looking!

Much better.  Can't wait for our baby daughter to get here.  Our first and I have a lot to get ready.  Holidays are good as I'm on layoff for a couple of weeks.  No pay but at least I can get things ready and some art done.  Merry X-mas!!  BTW!!

Thanks!  She is to come to us Jan. 20th but she is having problems turning.  We go Tuesday to see if the doctor can turn her on the outside...if not it most likely be a C section and we REALLY don't want that, but what ever it takes to have the baby safe for her and mom.  Happy 2014 too!

Wow!  Thanks for remembering, Pascal.  Yeah the baby turned on her own Sunday so when we went in it was all done already!  Now just a waiting game.  Still a lot to do and back to work with 12 hour days so busy, busy.  How are you doing?

Wow, this is epic and the type of image where you can see something different everytime you look at it! Amazing work.

To name a few I think I see Madonna, Knight Rider, Michael Jackson and the Greatest American Hero.

Right on Andrew!  My wife didn't get the greatest American Hero...watch it again recently, wow was it cheesy :).  You are right on all you mentioned.  I was hoping you could see something different every time that was my goal!

This is basically what I planned to do with mine, but I hurt my back, so after about 30 minutes I just drew in random stuff and quit.  I really like it!!! :D

Hope your back is better.  Snow can be fun and dam hard!!  Snow boarding on to wet like concrete was not my own first taste of the sport.  Anyway hope you get well.   Thanks a lot.  I just locked down myself and forced thru...I was submitting with 4 minutes to spare.  Thanks for commenting!

Hey Crash!  Devo of course!!  I though of mongoloid but when Melsie said you have to have Indiana with the whip, well...that's what they are saying...Indiana minion.."mubala zib, Wip it!"  Both "hahahaha"  OK I put to much thought in this.  Airwolf!! yes!! good call buddy.  I put a lot of Blade runner but love love that movie.  Watching futurescape science.discovery.com/tv-shows… is really something. Cybernetics,  replicants becoming a true reality...watch the robot revolution one it was CyBurg coming true!  I wish I would have done Big trouble too...Had Ghostbusters in tribute to you buddy!
