I've joined the Bowie gang. Thought I'd return to my most recognisable avatar but give it the ole Aladdin treatment, especially after all the praise I've been throwing at that album recently

I APPROVE! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

One slight critique, though: do you think you could make it smaller and to the left a bit so it's more aligned with her face?

I'll give it a go. I just put it through a website that stuck the lightning on the centre, but I think if I crop it cleverly it should align itself.

LOL I had no idea Bjork was Canadian! ahdn_john_08_gif

I haven't heard formal mention of this Bowie gang till now...sounds intriguing! and nice results from all, and much love to dear David...but I'm probably still gonna leave my apples stubbornly unadorned, for the time being. 

I do love fantasizing about the dressup-barbie style possibilities though! Add the "Man who sold the world" hairstyle, or apply the Hunky Dory gaze atop the apple, maybe?

(Seriously, has it been particularly Bowie-heavy around here lately or just the normal amount?)

Ah yes, I wanted to make a sig that everyone could relate to. That same logic applies to my avatar too.

I love it, @Beatlebug ! Thank you very much, I'll get to setting it as my picture now ahdn_john_08_gif

I think you're right in saying it has been particularly Bowie heavy around here lately, @vonbontee , with all the excitement from Fiddy getting into his music and everything. We've all caught the Bowie Bug.

You're right, it's all my fault. No one had ever heard of David Bowie till I came along! a-hard-days-night-george-10

And I would make a Bowietar, but Georgie's face is far too beautiful to cover up with a lightning bolt.

So much Bowie 'round here lately; and alas, Zig himself has barely showed up in months 🙁  

 

Very lovely new avatar there, AILHY. I always appreciated that image, Lucy as a psychedelicized 1920s flapper. Striking colour palette too, all those tomato-reds. Hope you keep that as your avatar for...three weeks, at least!
