My 80’s Film Icons

80's Icons

Every once in a while, I’ll try my hand at creating something artistic. Because I grew up in the 80’s, my inspiration is often that decade and, in my most recent efforts, I focused on some of the film characters that I grew up with.

Specifically, I thought about the iconic characters that I wasn’t supposed to grow up with. The likes of RoboCop, The Terminator, Predator and others like Rambo should not have influenced me because I wasn’t old enough to watch them! Yet of course I watched them, these viewings were essential for my younger self and I’ll be forever grateful that my parents turned a blind eye.

Robocop and Co

Presented here is a Retroist exclusive – the above image has been created solely for this site to honour my favourite of the three characters – Robocop!
