I’ve been drawing him since the age of 8, painting him since 15, and the habit hasn’t ended. David Bowie was my hero (well, one of, but possibly the most prominent). I became an artist because of him. I honestly sat there at 8 years old watching the Glass Spider Tour on repeat off a VHS taped from TV planning my gallery debut where he would show up because he “heard about me”.
That didn’t happen, but a lot of other cool things did, so I’m not complaining.
