Ceramic bust of Jesus as Aladdin Sane
Here’s a great time-killer for your Monday—an excellent Tumblr dedicated to showcasing artwork based on the cover of David Bowie’s 1973 album, Aladdin Sane.

From knit sweater patterns (that you can actually make yourself by the way) and street art, to cookies and sculptures, the Fuck Yeah Aladdin Sane Tumblr has a pretty incredible collection of Aladdin Sane-inspired artwork and creations. I could pretty much spend an entire day looking at Bowie in his Aladdin Sane guise, couldn’t you? This makes it easier!
The person behind this excellent Tumblr encourages its readers to submit Aladdin Sane-related artwork, with the last entry going up about a month ago. And to all this I say “Fuck YEAH, Aladdin Sane” keep it coming.
