Starman, RIP David Bowie by luceene-k Starman, RIP David Bowie by luceene-k

Yesterday i lost a hero.  

Thank you David for enriching our lives with your art, thank you for providing the soundtrack to our memories, thank you for showing us what it means to be an artist, thank you for Ziggy, Major Tom, the Thin White Duke & Aladdin Sane, thank you for never being boring, thank you for giving us hope - we can all be heroes, thank you for sharing your fantasies & inspiring us all. ...no one will ever come close.  i like to think you've just gone to a distant star (the prettiest one), but for your fans, you will stay forever in our hearts. :heart:

colour pencils (polychromos), Posca white, hot pressed paper.

Damn. This is so perfect. I remember actually listening to Starman the night before he died. You'll always be a hero, whether it's just for one day or for ever and ever.
