2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of David Bowie's hit single 'Space Oddity', with its famous 'Ground Control to Major Tom' refrain (it was released on 11 July 1969, fact-fans!). So to celebrate this pop landmark I produced a retro poster print imagining Major Tom still out in space after all these years, as he says, 'floating in a most peculiar way'.
There's a touch of art deco about this print (reflecting the way that period was back 'in' in the late 1960s and early 1970s), as well as a bit of pop art in the heavy colour halftone pattern that makes up the Earth.
