An Istanbul-based freelance graphic designer named Selman Hoşgör used the late David Bowie as the subject for an honorary art series.

The artist has a skill for blending photo-real illustrations with vibrant cartoon-like backgrounds and colors, a theme that was previously seen in his 'Famous Writers' collection as well. With his David Bowie renditions, Selman Hoşgör shows black and white imagery of the artist performing with his name superimposing in a whimsical typeface.

With this, the lettering looks like abstract music notes as much as it does David Bowie's name. In one of the pieces, Selman Hoşgör replaces the instrument being played with the letter D, making it look as though a harp is being played. Another does the same but with a guitar instead.
