I was Inspired by those cheesy illustrations you see at barbershops and nail salons for this piece. They were everywhere in the 80's.... Actually they're still around. LOL

The artist who originated the style is called Patrick Nagel. I was thinking of doing something in this style, but you probably hit the neatest idea with this. Nice work!

Thanks greatly. Yeah Nagel is one of those guys that really represents the 80's. I love his work. Sucks that part of his work breed knockoffs and cheap looking clip art for commercial malls and nail salons.

Yup you are right! Haha the inspiration though was from an artist named Patrick Nagel. I chose Edward because Nagels work was in high demand in the 80's, so alot of knock offs were done for barbershops and nail salons. You still can see this style and type of illustration today, Nagel just did it well in so many ways. Thanks for checking it out.
