The man behind the artwork for David Bowie's last album Blackstar has produced an animated video for I Can't Give Everything Away.

Jonathan Barnbrook said he wanted it to be a simple video that was "ultimately positive."

“We start off in black and white world of Blackstar, but in the final chorus we move to brilliant colour, I saw it as a celebration of David, to say that despite the adversity we face, the difficult things that happen such as David’s passing, that human beings are naturally positive, they look forward and can take the good from the past and use it as something to help with the present. We are a naturally optimistic species and we celebrate the good that we are given," he said.

Bowie passed away on January 10 at the age of 69 after battling cancer.
