"Blackstar" - A Portrait of David Bowie
"Blackstar" - A portrait of David Bowie by Jska Priebe                Graphite and carbon pencil on cold press illustration board, 11x14.
It's been a month since the world suddenly learned of the passing of one of the greatest artists of our time.  David Bowie has been one of my favorite creative humans since I was very small.  I first learned of him by seeing "The Labyrinth" - which I instantly fell in love with.  His music was the soundtrack to many happy memories in my life.  It wasn't until much later  that I would truly understand the impact this man had on art and culture throughout the world.  I feel very lucky to have access to his immense catalog of creative works which will continue to inspire me and many others for years to come.
 
I did this portrait to commemorate his life and to meditate on what his art meant to my own.  Rest in peace, Starman.
