Enough has been said already about the loss of such a creative force as David Bowie. It seems like 5 minutes ago that we were celebrating the David Bowie Is… exhibition in Melbourne, which is actually when I casually dropped this Aladdin Sane lightning bolt across this very old drawing. The drawing was done when I was 15 and at the peak of my obsession with the Bowie. I excitedly took it to the staff room at lunch time to show my teacher (possibly my first mistake), who dismissed it as nothing – “It looks like a photo” “Exactly!” “So why bother drawing it? Art is about interpretation.” I was crushed, clearly, since I’m still going on about it, but he was right – art is about invention and ideas, and these were things that Bowie had in bulk. RIP.
