80's Kid

© Copyright Adrian Valencia

When I was a kid in the 80's, my parents used to take my brother and me to the auto cinema in Mendoza Argentina. It was always in summer.  The films usually started when it was getting dark. The place was full with families and couples in their cars. Most of the time we - the kids - were awake to see the first film that was usually an uncontroversial family film. On one occasion, I fell sleep in the back of the car in a little bed that my parents made for my brother and me.  We used to listen to the film through the car radio, and some strong noise must have woken me up. I was supposed to be sleeping, so I kept myself quiet. The film was Flashdance which was adult classified. I loved every single second of that movie -it was like a long electrifying music video. The women on that film were so glamorous, so young, trendy and different. I remember waking up the next day, and I drew scenes from the film all day long. Since then I've always wanted to live in a city, speak English and also if possible to become a good dancer. I'm a terrible bike rider though.

It is like Director Adrian Lyne says "Its corny, but it's kind of true, you know?".

Here it is...The first post! This is an illustration I did for Vanity Fair Italy for their annual summer horoscopes. The brief was about stars, twitter and facebook. It was a very short deadline and I had to wake up at 5am to rough that day. I'm planning to use it as my enter image for my redesigned website coming soon.

From now on the purpose of this blog is to share all the things that keep me amused while working in my studio and I really hope you like it.
