Plexus publishing released David Bowie: Starman at the end of March, as not only a colouring book but a tribute to his life and his influence on others. There are many quotes from celebrities talking about how special Bowie was to them personally, so this is half colouring book, half text, a salute to a late great hero.
The paper is not great quality for colouring unfortunately, with waterbased pens bleeding through the reverse and in some cases onto the next page, so make sure you slip some scrap paper underneath the page you're working on. Obviously you will only be ruining the text if you use markers, as it's always text on the reverse of an image, so if you're only wanting to colour and not read it, bleed doesn't matter. If you're using pencils, even better!
The cover is a beautiful red and blue with stars and David's Ziggy Stardust persona, complete with a shiny foiled zigzag slash across his face.
Here's my finished picture, coloured with Triplus, Spectrum Noir Aqua and Harmony markers.
