Bono Draws Peter and the Wolf
"Peter & The Wolf" by Gavin Friday and the Friday-Seezer Ensemble is a modern take on Prokofiev's classic children's tale. The story is presented as an enhanced CD with a 64-page cloth-bound book illustrated by U2 lead man Bono, with help from his two daughters. The original paintings and studies by Bono and his two daughters Jordan and Eve, were auctioned at Christie’s Rockefeller Center on November 21, 2003, raising $368,000 for the Irish Hospice Foundation.
A limited edition lithograph of one of the Peter and the Wolf paintings signed by Bono is currently up for auction at CharityFolks.com. The proceeds from this auction will benefit the Bob Woodruff Family Fund. The auction closes November 30, 2007.
Limited Edition Giclée Prints of Bono’s illustrations, the book and CD box set, and other items are available at the Irish Hospice Foundation's Peter and the Wolf website.
