David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016)

Sometimes it’s not worth logging onto Facebook 2:45 am in the morning. That’s how I found out about David Bowie’s passing.

While I’m still processing the news of Bowie’s death, here’s a blog post from 2013. It’s my Bowie watercolor illustration, which I later sold. Which I now regret parting with.


“Don’t deceive with belief/Knowledge comes/With death’s release”

No truer words spoken as of this moment.


David Bowie from his Aladdin Sane era. Glitter watercolor. Painting done by Michele Witchipoo March 2013.

    Not a bad job. I don’t know about having a career in illustration – ask an expert, but as just ‘some one’ I think it’s a pretty good painting.

      Thanks. Sold the original the following year. Now I regret it.
