Arty-Fact: On the strength of [his] work for David Bowie's "Heathen" album, Markus was asked to create the cover image for GQ‘s “Man of the Year” issue honoring David. The resulting image shows the rock star fearlessly posing with a pack of wild wolves. Due to David's busy schedule and lack of availability for another shoot, Markus was forced to use a body double with the wolves, carefully adding in the singer’s face from the photos taken for "Heathen" during post-production.
“Our male model proved himself quite brave, as he worked it with the energetic and sometimes aggressive wolves. While his face looked nothing like Bowie, he was able to channel him through his body language.” ~ Markus Klinko
