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!!
