Here's a small selection from a couple of recent weddings I've been working at.....
As always, thanks to Niall O'Loughlin!

Here's a couple more U2 pieces that I'm currently striving to get finished.
At the beginning of 1990, after 10 years of gradual world domination, Bono declared that U2 would be 'going away to dream it all up again'. Quite how they were planning to do this was unclear but when they returned at the tail end of 1991 with the beast that is 'Achtung Baby' (in my opinion, their best album and one of the best albums of all time), it was evident that he really meant what he said almost two years earlier.
The transformation the band went through was immeasurable and what followed was without doubt, the most exciting period of U2's career to date.
On the release of the first single 'The Fly', Bono's suggestion that it was 'the sound of four men chopping down the Joshua Tree' couldn't have been more accurate.
Not sure which of these two I prefer most.

I've been working on this for a couple of weeks but in total, I reckon I've spent only a couple of hours actually drawing it. The drawing of The Edge was done a few months back and I wasn't really happy with this drawing of Bono I had done from a while back so I decided to redo it along with Larry and Adam. My only concern is that some members of the band look more caricatured than others which is something I'm trying to remedy.
I have some other U2 related ideas floating around that I'd like to try out so I'll try to post what I can......

Here's a caricature I did a couple of months ago but due to impending fatherhood, completely forgot to post.
When doing illustrations for these guestbooks, I usually insert some sort of background like a church or have the couple in a wedding car or something like that but the couple just wanted to keep it simple and I think it looks pretty good....even if I do say so myself!
