Searching the internet for artwork based on David Bowie's "Alladin Sane" album cover.
I decided to dedicate a page to things that my mum liked/adored/couldn’t live without. She used to rave on and on about David Bowie when I was little and we’d always have “Low” on the CD player. I remember going to a car boot sale without her when I was around 9 and I found an old Bowie record and bought it for her.
Anyway, Aladdin Sane was one of her favourite characters, but ‘Diamond Dogs’ was her all-time favourite song.
This cat picture was on my Facebook home just now and I couldn’t help but Bowie-fy it
because I have nothing better to do
Banksy is believed to have made his own tribute to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations by stenciling a picture of Her Majesty as Aladdin Sane. The graffiti artist-cum-mainstream pop culture icon is apparently behind the work, which shows the crown-wearing monarch sporting a jagged red stripe, just like the Seventies David Bowie creation.
Took up most of my busy schedule of doing nothing but I finally finished my painting of David Bowie as Aladdin Sane in acrylic on canvas!
