There's a new Achtoon Baby, yay!  Not only is Kelly a great artist, she also has the personalities down perfectly!  You know the band's going to use some of her ideas (dibs on the first backyard show!), but of course they won't use the ones that make sense, like streaming the concerts on U2.com.

*thinks about a $7000 Edge RealDoll*

What a great way to start the week!

This has got to be the craziest Achtoon Baby evahr, lol.  :D

Mega bonus points for making me giggle out loud by making sure Bono uses the word "extraordinary".

Also, I am TOTALLY being a good girl and  trying holding my tongue about the Real Doll suggestion. A TINY bit ashamed I knew what they were without looking. A little more ashamed that I think they (U2) should TOTALLY go for this! I mean, we get to pick the era?! The Bono one comes with a gold suit? What about the horns or do I have to make them myself? Mac is my favorite, squee!  ;D KIDDING, kidding...maybe.

In all seriousness, I totally look forward to Achtoon Baby releases just to swoon over Kelly's artwork. She captures every beautiful line. <3

my jaw drops at her artwork, so amazing. There is a pencil sketch of Larry on her website that absolutely captures his essence, whoever bought it is one lucky chick (or dude).

I hope Willie Williams gets a chance to see this. I'm sure he'd find it hilarious, and wonder if Kelly had hacked into their phones!

Squeeee! Thanks very much, you guys! This one was a lot of work, and I wish I could have finished it during the summer but I had a one-person show at a nearby college to stress out over first. Glad to be back!

Wow, you are insane to take that on... (One person art show!)...but hope you did well and lots of people came out to see (and buy!!) your art. =c) You really are incredibly talented and we are all super lucky you adore U2 and share that with us through your art!

I can so see Bono running around in a huge plastic ball like a hamster... provides entertainment for hours! :D Love the stage idea. Though my favorite choice would be Larry's, as long as they got around to EVERYONE'S backyards. ;D

U2 RealDolls? Um, count me in... especially if they're Zoo-themed...

Really, really lovely paintings too, of course. Is that the first time you've done Paul McGuiness? :D

All in all, a great thing to end my day.
