Bono (U2) by AmBr0 Bono (U2) by AmBr0
Video timelapse: [link]

Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2. Bono was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, and attended Mount Temple Comprehensive School where he met his future wife, Alison Stewart, and the future members of U2. Bono writes almost all U2 lyrics, often using political, social, and religious themes. During their early years, Bono's lyrics contributed to U2's rebellious and spiritual tone. As the band matured, his lyrics became inspired more by personal experiences shared with members of U2.

Your work is the top gun of realism. I love when a project makes that crossover where realism is mistaken as an actual photograph! You've mastered everything! Applying this to football, since you won the superbowl what do you do next? Very, very, very, very awesome work!!!

Of all your portraits this one seems like the "most" perfect, if that's possible:D I'm simply amazed that a person can do this. I look at the low fade in the area behind his temple and above his ear, and wonder...how is this NOT photo? Geez...fantastic work
