In the dark days before the internet, human nuclear families would huddle around a small living room box that displayed only 480×720 images. These bright beacons of media in an otherwise primitive time was our only portal to the sweet opiate to numb the pain of day to day living. As horrific as that might sound to the youth of today, the plus side was that there were some great mind numbing comedies filling the airwaves in the late 20th century decade known as the 80’s. Numerous family comedies, where not a single nuclear unit in any way resembled an actual family, were the stable of the time. Other comedies  usually involved dysfunctional workplaces. Among them, there are a few gems that still hold up today, and then there’s a lot of crap you can’t believe you used to think was funny.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: 80’s Sitcom.

All art work is due on Thursday, 4.3.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 4.4.13
