Reinvented hand-drawn poster of one of the most iconic concerts from the legendary David Bowie, an English singer-songwriter and actor. It was the day that David Bowie retired his most famous – and career-defining – alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, after a triumphant sold-out concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon Theatre.


The character was to symbolise an over-the-top, sexually liberated rock star.
The looks which made fashion history are included in the illustration, such as the curvy sequined jumpsuit designed by Kansai Yamamoto, also responsible for the red mullet. 


The "astral sphere" on his forehead was suggested by Pierre La Roche. The talented make-up artist also applied the lightning flash to Bowie's face for the cover of Aladdin Sane, here coming out of Ziggy's fingers.


The lighting is topped with a star because Starman himself refers to the word in nine song titles and is associated with the shape.


On either side of the persona's name are two vinyls to show two records, the first one is that David Bowie is the best-selling vinyl artist of the 21st Century and the other is to remember the whopping 140 million records sold and continuing success. He will forever be a leading figure in the music industry, he is regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.
