http://zootopia.u2.com/user/581196-illinoisu2/ created this work which incorporates so much of the advocacy of U2.

 

I like this message.

This one is clever.

 

I like the handmade paper entry and wondered how it was done. http://zootopia.u2.com/topic/27960-zoo-vinyl-competition-25-copies-of-ordinary-love-to-giveaway/?p=880895

 

And thanks Spicy for the comments. Check out the other entry I just added.

I don't know how to post big pictures like you, it's so complicated, I like Febottini's entry and Irma2U's Entry for a starter but I don't know why, I JUST like 'em !!!

I like the 'ONE' one too, it's the simplicity of it, a clever idea.

 

Also like this one, I envy people who can illustrate, it's such a natural talent, and this one's kinda surreal (in a nice way) and just different and individual.

 like this concept by member margl  http://zootopia.u2.com/user/322524-margl/

 

Margl said:

 

 

"The words 'but time leaves us polished stones' reminds me of my visit to the 9/11 Memorial.  Reading the names of the victims with the noise of the water cascading over the polished black marble of the reflecting pools served as a poignant reminder of the fragility and sanctity of life."

"The sea wants to kiss the golden shore, the sunlight warms your skin. #U2Ordinarylove

 

The painting is mine, and a friend (also U2 fan) said those lines totally reminded him of my painting."

chris,

 

click on the image and it will enlarge.

 

on the bottom of the image, on the right side, click on the save button.

 

then copy the jpeg link that will appear in the dialog box at the top of the screen.

 

paste that code in the box that opens when you click on the icon of the tree above.

 

the image will then appear.

 

the tree icon means picture, so you post that url link there.

Both pictures makes me want to discover the story that can be behind it. I tend to do that a lot these days, feeling the need to know the story or making one up in my mind. Every picture has his own story waiting for to be told...

I like this wood burning so much.

 

very nice use of a different canvas/material to work with.

 

no one else has done this or the mandela either.

 

love the originality and well done artist work ....

Spicy, I'm proud of this wood burning and I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was my first time wood burning ever. This was after I tried carving, but this wasn't the right wood needed for carving. Today, I bought another slice of wood to try another wood burn for a Christmas gift.

Taking part in this entry on my own, with no doubt I would say my position would be the best :)

 

But in general, I have thought that the contest is about personalisation, it was said, take a line or section of the lyrics from Ordinary Love and personalise it - so at most, I liked the entries showing the personal world of the author or at least trying to tend. I dislike entries made in Photoshop, or just some pictures taken much before the song is released and collaged with some stuff over - I can't see anything personal in them. My voting goes to those entries implying handmade work, as they are fitting the contest rules at most.

 

They are #s:

22, 24, 30, 36, 67, 72, 102

 

Specifically, those created with the help of cotton strings... very nice, original.

Nuff said.

I like this one the most. It just seems to be the most creative, and the artist must be very talented.

the entry you like is by artist http://zootopia.u2.com/user/581091-lareinaraygin/

 

I agree, its very good.

 

I love her watercolor on newsprint that makes the love between a man and a woman look "old and weathered"

 

LaReinaRaygin

 

She says:

 

"The sea wants to kiss the golden shore

The sunlight warms your skin..."

 

My twist on the lyrics portrays a literal expression of "Ordinary Love." The painting is water color on newspaper. I chose this medium because the newspaper begins to deteriorate and tear making this pleasing expression of love look old and weathered which leads into the next line in song.

 

"All the beauty that's been lost before"

Wants to find us again"

all entries were sent up to u2comteam for judging last week, and results should be posted soon (I expect they are on Xmas break for a few days, but may have already begun to notify winners - so hang tight)
