With David Bowie’s recent passing away, there has been many tributes to him in all senses. Local illustrator Mel Elliot creates Adult colouring books and one of her most successful is full of David Bowie drawings. The Civic commissioned an exhibition for her illustrations to be blown up and have local artists, designers, graphic designers and more to ‘colour-in’ these images.
I had the great honour of being asked to create one of these images and with my textiles background, I chose to fill it in with fabrics and stitches. There are some amazing pictures here and definitely worth the visit. They can be seen on the top floor in the Panorama Gallery until 9th April.
