Child of the 80s

I´m sure you´ve heard it too: David Bowie died and although I did not know him personally of course, I can´t help but feeling extremely sad about it:(

Maybe it´s because I´m a child of the 80s and grew up listening to the LPs of my parents, I don´t know.

Actually I wanted to finish a drawing for my next chapter of My Slightly Different Count Dracula but somehow my pencil didn´t really obey to my wishes and ended up drawing one crying Count Harecula after the other.

I guess that´s what happens if you try to outwit your subconciousness…

  1. I’m a child of the 70s, and I miss him too. My son, who is 17, was distraught at the news. I think that speaks volumes about David Bowie’s genius. Your drawing is beautiful and moving.

    1. Thank you soo much Su Leslie!!! And I´m sorry I didn´t respond earlier to your message – I´ve got problems with my notebook but hope to get a new one soon;) Yes, David Bowie was an absolute genius and I am glad that so many people of different ages were touched by it! Hope your son will get over it – I know it´s tough when you´re still in your teenage years:(
      I´ll also miss that wonderful actor Alan Rickman who passed away this week too:( It sure is a very sad week…

      1. No problem. Yes, the loss of Alan Rickman is really tough too. I’ll always remember him best in ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’, but for my son he will always be Snape. A sad week indeed.

      2. Yes, it really is:( “Truly, Madly, Deeply” is one of my favourite films too, but to be honest, I loved him in all the others as well, but especially in “Sense & Sensibility” and “Snow Cake”. And he had the most wonderful voice – I could have listened to him reading the Yellow Pages;) Oh, and of course, he was just superb as Snape. The world has become a poorer place now that two magnifecent artists are gone:(
