Thanks to Sam Seitz for his assist

Very special thanks to Andrew Kolb for drawing these delightful illustrations. I took them from his website, and hope he doesn’t mind me spicing it up. A very talented artist! Check out more of his amazing work at

Also thanks to David Bowie for his fantastic musical career. 35+ years of inspiring people all over the world. if you don’t own this song yet, check out:

I do not own the rights/ have permission to use this copywritten song. I also have no legal right to use Kolb’s artwork, and he did not help me in any way besides drawing these for his personal use. I took his art and digitally cut it apart from the PDF on his website. That being said, This is a non-profit project

After seeing Kolb’s “Space Book” on his site a month or so ago, I emailed him and asked if I could animate his art. I had just finished up a free-lance position, and didn’t want my skills to get dull; being a Bowie fan all my life, his art really excited me.

So here you have it; My contribution to the Major Tom Phenomena. Thanks again to Andrew Kolb for the art.
