One of my favorite TV programs to watch whilst in college was The Young Ones—a brilliant show from the 80’s featuring four colorfully diverse college students, puppets, top English bands at the time, and poor production value.
The two of the more interesting characters in the show were, of course, Viv and Rik (sorry, Neil and Mike!), the punk med student and the pimply anarchist poet. Without them as inspiration, it would have been a lot harder to paint this set.
Now that it’s done, I think I’ll treat myself to a Young Ones marathon!
