"cos he was trying to deglamorize himself"

from a film by the British Pop Artist Derek Boshier, the still features Alice Cooper, The Sweet, and, I think, Bowie

Boshier would later do the cover of Lodger, in collaboration with the photographer Duffy

his account of working with Bowie is about 33 minutes into this

Also here

Boshier also did artwork for Let's Dance, and stage sets (albeit unused) for the Serious Moonlight  tour - when Bowie I guess was trying to re-glamorize himself - or at least become a pop superstar again

The image says "I'm fit and working again" - ready to fight my way back to the toppermost of the poppermost

And here's more on Boshier's working relationship and friendship with Bowie
