A Nation in His Eyes by Sterin A Nation in His Eyes by Sterin
A man of music and many characters, Earth-bound and otherwise: David Bowie.


This is the first pencil portrait that I have completed since April of 2008... which is a bit startling.

I've always loved Bowie... but he has re-emerged as a reoccurring figure in my life, as of late.
As soon as I saw this picture of him, I was absolutely sold on putting it to paper.


The title is a line from the song 'Jump They Say'.

This portrait was completed with #2 pencil alone.
It took roughly nine combined hours of work.
