'To my mother, my dog, and clowns'
Hugely privileged to be invited to depict the Starman as part of SHOWstudios David Bowie: Oooh Fashion!
The drawing was in the V&A museum to celebrate our Hero. If just for one day.
Title: To my mother, my dog, and clowns
Description: David Bowie / Aladdin Sane / Ziggy Stardust performed the video for 'Life on Mars' in this Freddie Burretti blue suit. I drew it from collaging Bowie images together that included images of Kate Moss as Bowie. The hand is a reference to the iconic photographs of David Bowie used for Sound + Vision (Bowie holding a guitar) and also references #labyrinth . Such a great joy to roll out my emotions for Bowie through drawing listening to his contagious, dramatic, anthemic music.
