Fan Art of the Day:

If you love 1980s movies set in the Big Apple, then you'll love this panting by artist Sam Gibney (via Scott Weinberg/80s All Over):


Well this took a while! Finally completed this 80s Times Square populated by classic movie characters, as if they all existed in the same universe. It was certainly a challenge but naturally a very fun project too! The piece is actually 55" wide (!) so I'll reveal a few of the details in other posts, and I guess on Twitter I'll be able to share the whole thing a bit larger. This is a one-off so I'm afraid won't be available. Thanks to @mrwistles for the concept and commission. #gilbey80snyc #timessquare #nyc #sketching #illustration #80s #digitalart #digitalpainting #photoshop @photoshop #citydrawing #newyork #newyorkart #newyorkdrawing #newyorkpainting #citypainting #instaart #illustratorsofinstagram #illustratorsoninstsgram #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #80smovies #ghostbusters #threemenandababy #gremlins #brewstermillions
