Highlights from Rivet Gallery 80's Cartoons art show

A few of my favorites from Rivet Gallery's new show "We'll Be Right Back... After These Messages." You can see all of the artwork here. Links below are to the artists' personal sites:

Tiamat, Thundarr, He-Man, and Voltron by Scott Campbell. You know, speaking of the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, I highly recommend this post by Mark Evanier about his script-writing for the show. It's eye-opening to hear him describe how he was forced to insert the following theme into every episode: The group is always right...the complainer is always wrong.
