A lifelong fan of David Bowie, illustrator Helen Green has captured the star’s many reinventions with 29 mini-portraits. The images, which span 50 years from 1964, were put together for Bowie’s 68th birthday this month. “I’ve grown up with Bowie’s music, and many of his albums are my all-time favourites,” says Green. “The way he has collected ideas and characters has always fascinated me.” Her favourite Bowie moment is his Ziggy Stardust performance on Top of the Pops. “He was dressed in a Freddie Burretti quilted jumpsuit with spiky red hair, and he looked otherworldly. When I saw the outfit at the V&A in 2013 I was mesmerised.” See more of her work at helengreenillustration.com
