TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE
This year started roughly with the death of a huge star, David Bowie.
The continued passing of musical giants and celebrities has continued.
Several of these include Merle Haggard, Vanity (Denise Matthews – Prince’s protegee), Maurice White, René Angelil, Paul Kanter, Glenn Frey … several more.
Heather Rooney is an artist I follow.
Today I found her tribute to David Bowie.
I’m hoping she does one similar project for Prince!
My name is Heather Rooney.
I am an illustrator specializing in photorealistic colored pencil and graphite drawings. Since finding my passion for portrait and figure drawing in high school, I have developed a technique focusing on high attention to detail.
I draw my inspiration from a broad range of cultural figures, such as sport athletes, media personalities, and entertainment professionals.
With each illustration requiring many hours of work, ranging from 30 hours to 100+ hours, I share my process through time-lapse videos on my YouTube channel, which has generated over 60 million views from a global audience.
I received my B.A. in Studio Art at Emmanuel College, in the vibrant city of Boston, Massachusetts. I am now pursuing a career in illustration.
