What can be said about David Bowie that hasn't already been said? He and his music have had a huge impact and influence on my life, especially visually/artistically and musically. One of the staples of my art is to fuse two images into one using colors, shapes, and silhouettes. For my Bowie piece, the hardest thing to do was to narrow it down to just two, but I was sure I wanted to combine early Bowie with later Bowie. I ended up drawing him from a photo taken later in his life, but overlaid the iconic lightning bolt and used the colors from his early 1970s Aladdin Sane period. To add a third element, I named the piece after a line from "Changes," the opening track on HUNKY DORY, probably my favorite Bowie album. I like to think Bowie hasn't died, he just *changed* forms, as he has done countless times ... only, this time, into a form we can't physically see, but will always continue to feel.
