1. Where the Streets Have No Name
I kick off the new year of the art blog with yet another illustrated U2 album, 'The Joshua Tree' from 1987. I did the whole pictorial in a space of just two days in a mad creative rush! Such an effect U2's music has on me. It's always fun to restrict the color palette you work with, and though it might sound odd, it can give you more creative freedom. For the illustration of 'Bullet the Blue Sky' I recycled a drawing I used in 'Rattle & Hum illustrated' back in June last year. I had several ideas for a new take on it, but in the end decided I didn't want to diminish my original intepretation of it.
