David Bowie "Heroes"

Sometimes dream jobs do come true!

It seems unreal that this actually happened, but I was recently asked to put together a whole suite of posters and merchandise for the Carolina Performing Arts Philip Glass at 80 festival. One of the specific pieces I created was a poster for a performance of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” which is a tribute to the work of some of my personal heroes, such as Brian Eno and obviously Mr. Bowie himself. I decided that a minimalist, textural interpretation of the original album photograph would be the perfect approach for the poster. I am supremely jealous of everyone who will get to attend this Friday! I will have copies of this available for sale early next week, for anyone who is interested.

Make sure to click on the attachment to see the full poster.
