On January 10, iconic musician David Bowie died after an 18-month battle with cancer. People immediately flocked to social media, sharing their favorite music videos, photos, and songs from the artist. 

One gif in particular — created by 23-year-old artist Helen Green — has been a popular item shared on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. 

The gif is a series of illustrations done by Green, all spliced together to create a fast moving progression of Bowie's styles throughout his years of performing. 

Green, who's Tumblr is filled with drawings and photoshopped gifs or her artwork, mainly focuses on depictions of Bowie and Lady Gaga. This particular Bowie series hit the front page of Reddit exactly one year ago — on January 11, 2015. 

Today, in the hours following the announcement of Bowie's death, people are discovering and sharing the gif — some of them seeing it for the first time.

The official Tumblr Twitter account also posted the gif:

David Bowie's official Facebook page posted Green's work in January 2015, with the following comment from the artist herself: "It’s become somewhat of a tradition for me to create something to celebrate David Bowie’s birthday - a little token of appreciation for someone that has inspired me so much over the years."

Tech Insider reached out to Green for further comment on her image's newfound popularity, and will update if we hear back.
