Happy new year!
I just saw the movie Julie and Julia last night and it's inspired me to start blogging again. Things have gotten quite slow in the illustation business in the last year so there hasn't been much to write about. However, Liturgy Training Publication's 2011 Year of Grace giant poster/calendar that I illustrated so long ago has finally been published. Actually it's been out since the beginning of Advent, when the liturgical year begins. It's exciting to have contributed to a project that is so widely used and appreciated. One of LTP's past calendars that I keep hanging on my studio wall was illustrated by Tommy di Paolo, an artist whose faith and artistry have always inspired me. The image above is the center portion of my calendar. You can see the entire calendar (and order one) here. My favorite portion is the shepherd, sheep and truck located in the lower left of the calendar. A scan from the orginal art is shown below.
