Bono Turns 60, What's Your Tribute?
« on: May 08, 2020, 03:25:45 AM »
With Bono turning 60, I wanted to make a small tribute in the form of a drawing.

To make it meaningful, I used as reference a photo I took myself from U2's first ever show in the Philippines.

The drawing was on A4 size black paper with colored pencils, but I only used the greytones.

It took me faster than I anticipated.  There were still many days to go.  So I decided to make matching drawings of the other band members.   All are based on photos I took myself from shows I watched in JT Tour 2019.

Edge is from the Manila show, Larry and Adam from Singapore night 2.

So these four drawings are my sort of birthday gift to Bono.

Happy Birthday Bono!

Let me know also how you guys plan to pay tribute to him for his birthday.

Cheers,

J

Wow, those are great. Good on you for using your own photos, too.

For my tribute, I shall listen to Bono's favorite U2 song, Stay. :)
Are you tough enough to be kind?

I don't really get to visit this site much. I think the discussions here have also slowed down a bit.  Nevertheless if anyone is interested in high resolution scans of these, drop me a line. I'll send it free.

Cheers,
