Michel Gondry, Tunde Adebimpe And Others Sketch David Bowie

Considering how image-conscious Bowie was in his heydey, it should be of no surprise to anyone that he's received a lot of attention from the visual arts in addition to music. Though Bowie has spent the predominant part of this decade as an excellent cameo artist/character actor in movies like Zoolander, The Prestige, and August, many artists have filled the void of eyeliner-clad Bowie with sketches of their own. Pitchfork's Matthew Perpetua has alerted the blogosphere to a rather dumbfounding collection of David Bowie caricatures, a project that's been circulating through various comic conventions over the years and includes artists of a variety of generations of comic book and webcomic illustrators.


Not to be left out, esteemed music video director and occasional feature-length-film director Michel Gondry threw his sketch into the mix (pictured), as did TV On The Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe. Definitely check out the gallery; it features pretty much every Bowie phase there is, including the ones you wanted but never came.

I like the John Cuneo and the Adebimpe, too, but Gondry's is probably my favorite. Anybody else have a top pick?
