Jareth by SweetChile Jareth by SweetChile
Hi! This is the first colour pencil drawing I've done in months and months and months. It's Jareth, from the Labyrinth movie played by David Bowie. I don't know, I just had the urge to draw Jareth as he and the movie are just so damn cool. I adore the mullet, David Bowie is the man!

And if you haven't seen Labyrinth for some untold reason see it it's wonderful. :heart:

Edit 2016: RIP David Bowie a true legend. I'll love Labyrinth forever. Immortal! :heart:

This is an utterly fantastic piece. May I please use it as part of a picture blog post I'd like to do on princefroglip.tumblr.com? I will put a link back to this gallery page in the description of the post/mention you are the original artist. (It's for a gag, that goblins worship Saint Jareth as part of their religion.)

Fantastic work this is one of my favorite movies of all time. You captured Bowie's Jared perfectly! Outstanding use of pencils. If you sell prints please let me know prices. I would love a set.

Not that regular Bowie is really any less weirdly dressed than Jareth most of the time! Gotta love him. :)
