A Bitter Start To 2016: A Sadly Fairwell Ode To Bowie & Rickman

Happy BELATED New Year Peeples! It is I once again with an incredibly sad first blog post of 2016 actually.

Unless you folks have been living under rock thus far, you should have by now have heard sad news that both David Bowie and Alan Rickman have died within the same week. Talk about a sucky start to 2016! It was already bad enough losing David Bowie but to lose Alan Rickman a few days later WHY?! Needless to say I was very saddened. Honestly there really isn't anything I could say which haven't been said by so many others already. So instead I decided to pay tribute to the wonderful legends in the only way I know how, De Red Eye style!

Inspired by the famous William Blake painting Jacob's Ladder, I decided create something similar...
And viola! Here's the result in all it's glory! Honestly, both Bowie's and Rickman's legacies are just so amazing I could just picture them deciding together to be remembered for each and everyone of their iconic moments because why the bloody hell not?

I may re-visit this image later in future because to be honest I'm not fully satisfied with how the colours have turned out but for now I hope I've done them proud.

And before I bring this latest update to a close, I'll just finish it off by posting David Bowie's Magic Dance from one of my favourite films of all time Labyrinth...

And Pretty Woman from Sweeney Todd too (since I accidentally left Judge Turpin OOPS! Another incredibly awesome Alan Rickman performance)...

All in R.I.P. Bowie & Rickman, and thank you both so much for just being...Well, awesome iconic legends!

Well, that's all for now folks and until next time...

See ya later Navigators! :D
