This awesome digital portrait of Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie comes to us from graphic illustrator @Steiner_USA and would make a super rad t-shirt design.


Artist @Helengreen made this beautiful GIF of the late, great Bowie in honor of his final album Blackstar, released just two days before his death.


Here is an excellent color pencil sketch of David in his iconic Alladin Sane lightning bolt make-up by @ClaireJacksonArtwork.


@FredRalda depicts a powerful scene from the Rock legend’s final music video for the song “Lazarus” with an epic digital graphic.


@Punkkittyy’s watercolor/ink portrait jumps off the canvas with her pretty use of Bowie’s trademark color combination.
