THE STARS LOOK VERY DIFFERENT TODAY

THE STARS LOOK VERY DIFFERENT TODAY

Many years ago in a galaxy far, far away I was faced with painting works to use as portfolio pieces, hoping to secure a commission from a national magazine like Time. Being an early and enthusiastic fan of David Bowie, I decided it was a good opportunity to combine my interests in SF and his music in one piece.

In the end, I believe it never was used for a publication, but I don’t regret taking the time to create it. (Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn that he was cast as the lead in the film THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH!)

We are all diminished by the loss of this singular and uncompromising artist. Fly on forever, Major Tom.
