'SpongeBob' Artist Arielle Phillips And Nickelodeon Animation Pay Tribute To David Bowie On Second Anniversary Of The Musicians Death

On Sunday 10th January 2016, two days after his 69th birthday and the release of the album Blackstar, the world lost music legend David Bowie to liver cancer. Among his lengthy resume, David worked on two SpongeBob SquarePants projects for Nickelodeon: he voiced Lord Royal Highness in the SpongeBob SquarePants special "Atlantis SquarePantis", and contributed the song "No Control" to Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical.

On the anniversary of the legendary musicians death, SpongeBob SquarePants artist Arielle Phillips and Nickelodeon Animation have unveiled a special tribute to the Starman: a drawing featuring Squidward Tentacles as David's glam rock alter ego Ziggy Stardust. In his own words, “Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming”:

R.I.P David Bowie, 8 January 1947 - 10 January 2016.
