Strife on Mars

Strife on Mars

Bowie vs. Kaiju

A poster for fictitious Japanese movie staring David Bowie as a Mecha Pilot battling Kaiju on Mars. It is kind of a space opera with giant robots and monsters. Plus a lot of great original Bowie songs on the Strife on Mars soundtrack.

Available as a print in the Shop! Sorry sold out, thank you to everyone who ordered a print!


Bowie plays Flight Captain of the 8th Mars Mecha Squadron, nicknamed “The Spiders”. When Kaiju (strange giant monsters) from beyond the X dimension attack the human colonies of Mars, it’s up to Bowie and The Spiders to save the last human outpost on Mars. With the help of plucky female scientist Rin Ayumi and her young nephew Hiro can Bowie discover the secret to defeating the Kaiju? And who is the mysterious time traveler Ako-X? Tune in to Strife on Mars to find out!

    Love my poster! Have up where I can see it while I’m work. When I have a super-bland design job it reminds me there is still fun to be had!

    I would love a print of this. Please consider re-printing, and contact me if you do! It combines my two favorite things, David Bowie and Japanese pop culture. And it looks stunning.
