David Bowie – Let’s Dance T-Shirt
These opening lines are taken from David Bowie’s funk rock single Let’s Dance, produced by Nile Rodgers of the band Chic, which was Bowie’s first and only single to top the charts in the US and UK in 1983.
Bowie’s calling ‘put on your red shoes’ refers to Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale The Red Shoes in which a girl was tempted to wear the shoes only to find they could not be removed.
Hand drawn by Manchester designer Michael Wylie whose typography prints can be found on his company’s web site sketchbookdesign.co.uk Michael was born and raised in Sunderland in North East England and moved to Manchester to attend university. While studying on his Foundation Art & Design course at Manchester Metropolitan University, Michael first started to experiment with the use of words and typography in his artwork. Following his Fine Art degree, and while working as an Art and Design lecturer, Michael began to create some personal typographic artwork. One of these designs was inspired by the hit TV show Breaking Bad and the artwork drew the attention of AMC who produced the show. The interest in his work drove Michael to pursue his passion and this led to the creation of Sketchbook Design.
