I felt like drawing them this time.


All four of them took me about an hour and a half to complete (new record for me).


I warmed up with Edge; I almost always draw/paint him first because he's so easy, and I finished with...


...Bono, because he's usually the most difficult. This one was easy, though. The pose is just SO Bono.

Hope you like them!

(Thanks y'all.)

Edge's face is just SO unique. He doesn't look like anybody else. Adam is almost as easy for the same reason. Larry gives me problems sometimes because he's so pretty, and (I've said it before) Bono's face is a complete diva--so many little details to think about. His mouth is often impossible, and then there's all this texture to deal with. But! When I draw a good Bono, I feel like I've really accomplished something.

Beautiful! Damn, do I ever know how hard Bono's mouth is to draw...and I have no idea why, it just is. But you NAILED it.

Also, for some reason, the clothes Bono and Adam have on remind me of doctors. Dr. Bono, I need a checkup!

The blogs made me laugh like a mad person! I loved the drawings and the small individual touches on each of the blogs. ROFLMAO!

Absolutely brilliant.

Those would look perfectly at home matted and framed and placed in a U2 collectibles room. :)

i just finished reading and drooling over every last single entry of your fine work from the beginning to the most recent one. i cant believe how good you are at getting these four wonderful men to look so right. its spookily almost like looking at photographs that you know nobody will ever be able to capture. my favorite was Larry's second home with all the u2 archive stuff. the way he just stands at the door glowering at the viewer is fabulous. and the 'how to draw' seried. i've been tempted for months to try and sketch them, but know i'll never get bono's mouth right, or edge's eyes to have that light in them.. but he looks like the easiest to start with, if i decide to try.

thanks for posting here, i'd have missed all this otherwise.

These drawings of the band members are amazing, so lifelike!  I'd love to see a pic of MacPhisto done in that style. ;)

And I just wanted to say how much I cracked up over Bono's "knight" self-portait, it looks exactly like something he would draw. I thought that was brilliant. *g*

Wow, that Edge portrait is really something. I think someone else mentioned it above, but those eyes! So perfect! And Bono is great, too. Oh, they all are!

Bono's blog had me cracking up. I love it. :)
