This work is accompanied by a "Couch Party with PoPaganda" poster advertising live art with Ron English.
This one of a kind sketch was hand drawn live in person at Zumiez in New York City on June 27, 2015. Only four attendees were invited to sit with English while he drew whatever they desired; the current owner of this work chose to incorporate David Bowie. English's intention with this drawing was to morph his character Charlie Grin Toy with David Bowie's alter ego, Ziggy Star Dust, by integrating Bowie's famous lightning bolt, thereby combining the characters into the unique juxtaposition you see here.
Proceeds from the sale of this lot will benefit Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles.
