Bono by jackieocean Bono by jackieocean
This is a picture of Bono that was based off of a photograph in the CD liner notes for All That You Can't Leave Behind. This was drawn with pen and ink in 2001, and while I was on an airplane!...although that would probably mean nothing to you unless you knew that the video for their song Beautiful Day from that album was filmed in an airport.

P.S. I am a mega U2 fan. Just to warn you in advance ;-)

I'm not that big of a U2 fan, but I love this picture. Kind of reminds me of 'Reservoir Dogs' in a way with the silhouette look to it.

You know, know that you've pointed it out, it does remind me of the promo material for Resevoir Dogs.

"So she woke up... woke up from where she was... lying still... said "I... got to do something...about where we're going.....step on steam train...step out of the driving rain maybe...run from the darkness in the night..." I'm listening to "Running to Stand Still" now... you're not the only mega U2 fan! Great Bono portrait!

I love how striking this is. You captured all of his most prominent features perfectly, albeit simply. The black-and-white simplicity of this picture takes immense talent to master, and you have! I love it.

So flattering - thank you very much! Luckily, Bono has features that are easier to draw, in comparison to other people at least. Once you get the nose, chin, and sunglasses you're over halfway there!
