Artist's Description

This art work was created in collaboration with Bradley Nichol

We discovered that we are each U2 fans and decided to collaborate illustrating the songs from The Joshua Tree. This is the first work we have done together. The main image of the tree and stars is all Brad. I absolutely fell in love with the photograph and added the miners, lighting, and red.

The image of the miners is public domain.

Finally the song, “Red Hill Mining Town,” was written by Bono some say in response to the United Kingdom miner’s strike in 1984 when Maggie Thatcher closed “unprofitable” mines, placing already economically fragile families in peril.
