British illustrator Tom Ward combined his love of cinema with his graphic design skills to create this small but very positive series of "Eighties reload" prints. "In my heart, films and TV shows from the 1980s have a special place, so I wanted to do something with these images," says Tom Ward. - "At first I just started drawing characters familiar to me from childhood, and then I began to place them in today's conditions, and it seemed interesting to me. Although, to be honest, I was just looking for excuses for myself why I want to draw Hi-Men."
