This is, without a doubt the quintessential Bowie Album cover. The album features the iconic lightening bolt backup over David Bowie’s face. The album was released in between his Ziggy Stardust albums and his Diamond Dogs persona in 1973. It was obviously my first choice for a David Bowie Album. The album features Bowie over a plain white background. I decided to make the background less than plain so I embroidered and laser cut dozens of small white flowers in glitter appliqué. I stitched the face and hair with free motion wool thread embroidery. For the lightening bolt I embroidered and laser cut glitter fabric as well. His name and the album title were created as patches and collaged onto the album last. This was one of the first albums in the series and the first to sell out as well.
