HOME DISCO series (2016)

“Here he is, the man you’ve been waiting for at the disco, Mr. John Travolta, from the vintage year that keeps on giving (1977). He took me 20 minutes to draw. I love the story of Saturday Night Fever but I was quite late to the party when I watched it for the first time. You watch a few seconds of his feet walking down the street (famously NOT belonging to him, Dad tells me) and you’re hooked! “We feel the languorous pull of the discotheque… something deeply romantic: the need to move, the need to dance, the need to be who you’d like to be. Nirvana is the dance; when the music stops, you return to being ordinary.” The home disco is nearing last orders so as the British would say while ringing a very loud bell in your ear and turning on all the lights, “Can you start drinking up please? Can you start making a move now please?””
