I know I'm a day late posting here, but I've been celebrating the man's day since last Friday, continuing through today, in my classes at the gym, playing U2 songs and telling everyone that the Edge is Fifty! Fifty years old!

I hope you had a great birthday, Mr. The Edge!

Well it went something like this, and forgive me if I don't get the details correct, I have zero memory.  I believe it was last year on The Edge's b day, Beli or Mon posted a picture of a birthday cake with dinosaurs on it and said they thought Edge would like a cake like this.  A few days later Edge tweeted a pic of a pink plastic dinosaur. We were all pretty shocked. I really think The Edge is checking in here once in a while!

Missey, what a memory you have! It was me who posted the cake. It is in last year's thread. I confess I was hoping for another Twit pic but understand if he is resting in France. I will settle for a BEdge bathing suit shot.

Haha, I didn't get a chance to upload this yesterday. My scanner is a pain in the butt and takes so much time to process. Just a doodle-comic I made yesterday honoring meh favorite guitarist.  ;) I had to put text in digitally since it was impossible to read my handwriting with the scan. And please don't berate my lack of artistic skill; it was just a doodle.  ::)

Daawwwww, thank you so much guys! I really appreciate the kind comments! It was just my little appreciation of the Edge on his big 50.  :D ;) I also wonder if anybody has told him his eyes are ridiculously hard to draw, I mean, even harder than Bono's nose.  ;D But anyway, if more 'inspiration' much like Edge's birthday spark again I'll see if I can find somewhere appropriate to post another doodle/comic (where would that be....  ???) Thanks again and another 3 cheers for the fantastic, amazing, Mr. the Edge.  :)

I think they are impossible.  :D I've only gotten them okay to being close, and I believe that was luck that I happened to make the right line at the correct spot.  :D ;) I love drawing though his awesome action shot live poses. They're so epic.  ;D
