Title: Happy 40th U2! I did this tribute drawing for the band (ok, just Bono and Edge)
Post by: jick on September 23, 2016, 11:40:20 PM
In celebration of U2's 40th anniversary as a band this Sunday, I did this drawing of them.  Here is a video:

I will attach a photo in this thread as soon as I take a picture of the drawing.

I'd appreciate some feedback.  My apologies to Clayton and Mullen for not including them.

Cheers,

J

Thanks for the nice words.

It's officially September 25 now here in my country so Happy Anniversary, U2!

By the way, the video might be too long for some at 2 minutes so you can check a 12 second timelapse in Instagram. Just search #u240 and #charcolor

Cheers,

Ok since I'm feeling it let me share links of some U2 drawings I did.

In 2014 after Songs Of Innocence was released:

And here's something perhaps circa 1994 or 1995 - when I was still a teenager in college:

I sure hope my drawing ability has improved over the years.

Cheers,

J

More interested in your Golf swing videos personally, Jick. Looks like you may have a game in you...

I just uploaded a quicker timelapse video - only 12 seconds for those with shorter attention spans.

More like I used to have a lot of game in me, now I am over the hill --- but hopefully it will come back again.

Just checked out your composition jick, its a great piece..you captured the edge spot on
i can see the concentration on his face, as he always has playing. Love the colour of the guitar too.. nice touch. Hope your still creating.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I am still drawing, but since that is for recreation and during free time - I have other things to draw before I'll start drawing U2 again.  But I have some Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary ideas.

Cheers,

J

I truly appreciate the kind words from the bottom of my heart.

If I could only give this drawing away, I would - but I just live in a far away country and shipping would cost a fortune!

Cheers,

I thought Bon Jovi are your favourite band, jick.

Bon Jovi is not my favorite band but they are right up there - but not a fan of the current lineup minus Sambora.  The guitars lack identity and sexiness to them now.

I have never made a drawing of Bon Jovi though, but I have did a number of U2 drawings.

Cheers,

J
