George Underwood was not only responsible for David’s unique eye appearance (apologies, but I do have to say thank you for not going all bro code when you punched David in the eye all those years ago! 😉) George is also the man behind the colored artwork you see in the 1969 vinyl release David Bowie aka Space Oddity. Above I posted Davids drawing as well as George’s completed work since it does look a bit different (color) than the record sleeve. Check his work out. He does an amazing Marc Bolan.
This has been your random Bowie PSA. The more you know 🌈🌟

David Bowie has a condition called anisocoria, which is the medical term for unequal pupils. In 1962, aged 14, he got punched in the eye by his schoolfriend George Underwood, during an argument over a girl named Carol Goldsmith. George’s fingernail caught David’s eye and dislodged something. David was admitted to Farnborough Hospital, where it was found that the sphincter muscles of his left eye were badly torn and he
underwent two eye operations. He has an enlarged pupil that remains permanently open, giving them an unusual appearance. Contrary to popular belief David doesn’t have two different coloured eyes – they are both the same colour. The enlarged pupil only gives the “effect” of two different coloured eyes.

Bowie received a serious injury at school in 1962 when his friend George Underwood punched him in the left eye during a fight over a girl. Doctors feared he would become blind in that eye. After a series of operations during a four-month hospitalisation, his doctors determined that the damage could not be fully repaired and Bowie was left with faulty depth perception and a permanently dilated pupil. Despite their altercation, Underwood and Bowie remained good friends, and Underwood went on to create the artwork for Bowie’s early albums.
