I have been getting some interesting commissions during this Year of Mercy. This image, "The Least of These", was one of 16 illustrations I created for Blessed Are the Merciful: Stations to Celebrate God's Way of Mercy by David Haas. Check it out on Clear Faith Publishing's website.
What do you think of this new style? Different for me to be working in this softer manner with many more values to play with.
I'm a fine artist and freelance illustrator currently dividing my time between Bellingham, Washington, and Cincinnati, Ohio. My work has regularly appeared on book covers and in magazines and newsletters in North America, Europe and Australia. In 2007 I completed an art library of over 260 lectionary-based images for Augsburg Fortress Press, and in 2008 did the illustrations for the Lutheran Study Bible. As a recipient of a Individual Artist Grant from the City of Cincinnati in 2009, I created a series of ten relief prints based on the streetscapes near my studio in Northside. My illustrations were featured on the 2011 Year of Grace calendar published by Liturgy Training Publications. I recently illustrated a three year cycle of Sunday readings for Living Liturgy, published by Liturgical Press.
