Hugely privileged to be invited to depict the Starman as part of SHOWstudios David Bowie: Oooh Fashion!
Was displayed in the V&A to celebrate our Hero. If just for one day.
Title: His Script is You and Me
Description: David Bowie / Aladdin Sane / Ziggy Stardust performed 'Time' in this Kansai Yamamoto knit bodysuit.
I drew Bowie as if he was pulling his body into his iconic 'Face Flash' shape. I interpreted each line, pattern and shape of him and the outfit in an abstract way that used colour and tone to depict different beats, melodies and sounds from numerous Bowie songs. Time, Starman, Cat People, Life on Mars, TVC15, Boys Keep Swinging, and so many, many more Bowie anthems, as well as the wondrous Kansai Yamamoto design, provided all the inspiration I needed for a night of singing, drawing and mourning one of my idols.
