49/99 WE CAN BE HEROES - just for one day


  our new theme over at 

Art Journal Journey

I tried to portray an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, painter, and actor. ... 

David Robert Jones

 also know as David Bowie
It's on watercolor paper A5

I wrote the quote ( it's one from David Bowie himself) with Pitt Artist pen 1,5 ( Faber Castell).
I was brave enough to write directly on the page this time.... 
but before I did - I made a photo of my page - in case I had ruined the page with my writing.

 Happy Wednesday you all!
