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.
