The Big Bowie Draw

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

It’s been a while since we had our Midweek Draw, so we thought we would do a special Bowie Inspired Draw to celebrate what would have been his 75th Birthday on the 8th. 

Happy Birthday Starman.

Will you be inspired to draw your own Ziggy? Please do share and celebrate with us if you do.

Additional Bowie idea:

Why don’t you have a go at your own stencil? Photocopy an image you are inspired by. Adjust the printer contrast so the image is extreme dark & light. Using a craft knife, carefully cut away the dark sections. You are now ready to stencil. Use spray paint for best results!
