A late Bowie tribute

Like everyone I was saddened by the news of David Bowie‘s death this week. Others have written far more eloquently than I could ever wish to on his brilliance and his legacy, and many of us have favourite songs, albums, films and fancy dress outfits (?) of his tattooed in our memories forever.

For instance, when someone says his name to me a rush of things quickly pop through my mind – his outfit in Labyrinth, the line ‘this is Ground Control to Major Tom‘, His dancing alongside Mick Jagger in their ‘Dancing In The Streets‘ video, ch.ch.ch.changes, his Aladdin Sane make up, his ‘Little Fat Man‘ piano ditty on Ricky GervaisExtras, that photo of him fellating Mick Ronson‘s guitar… all in an instant.

I also remember this doodle I did of him as an ostrich a couple of years ago:
