It's good to see that I'm not the only one who waxes nostalgic about The A-Team. Of course, my creative expression usually lies with calling someone a "crazy fool" when being cut off in traffic which is not in the same universe as these artistic masterpieces.
By searching DeviantArt.Com for fan art I learned one thing...B.A. might have been the most popular character then, but Murdock is definitely immortalized the most of all the characters nowadays. I could easily do a best of Murdock fan art article, but I chose some I personally enjoyed for the sake of including a little bit of everything. Check out the best pieces of fan art I could find as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the A-Team this month...
the A team by nightwing1975 (DeviantArt)
- This artist has "toon versions" of just about every character imaginable. These look like they came from a comic book. Very well done.
- This might be my favorite piece of fan art ever. I've featured Old Red Jalopy on RD80s before and he does some amazing work (including this article's headline image of B.A.'s van.) I love the weathering of the photo and the paper-clipped note like it was taken from a top secret government file.
- Why didn't this happen? Surely it could have been better than teaming up with Mr. T and his gymnasts. Just have them shoot lasers and it would've been great!
A-Team Van t-shirt transfer by KaizokuShojo (DeviantArt)
- This is another T-Shirt design that I'd proudly wear. Artist claims it's an image scanned from an old coloring book and then filled in using Photoshop. Nicely done!
