Illustrating the 80s with Sharpies

I’m a big fan of Sharpies. In fact, I use one every day. A blue one, to be exact. So I was pretty excited when I came across this ‘Sharpie Art’ detailing some of the great views of the 80s. I remember all of this very well! VHS tapes were a staple of life!

Check out this gallery of ‘images of the 80s’ you may recognize. From tape cases, video game cartridges to the ever-famous VHS tapes, you’ll take stroll back in time thanks to Hollis Brown Thornton.

These VHS tapes and games, drawn by Thornton will take you on a walk down memory lane. He created each of these with Sharpies on regular paper. On Infectious, Hollis compared passing technologies to the Big Bang Theory in an interesting way. He pointed out that each time we get a new form of technology, our entire belief system changes since our eyes are opened to new truths.

Pretty cool, if you ask me. Check out the gallery here.
