Dorothy Day

Today I completed this portrait of Dorothy Day, drawing it with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop. It's very unusual for me to create something completely digital from start to finish. In general I prefer to work manually, but using the computer seemed the best way to deal with the complexity of this illustration. (Image copyright 2009 by Julie Lonneman)

    I really like your portrait of Dorothy!

  2. Hi Julie!

    I was doing a little research for a piece that I painted of Dorothy Day and came across your work. Very nice! I studied her life while a student at Marquette years ago. Here is the piece that I did:

James and Evelyn Whitehead received a notecard from a friend, and noticed my illustration on it. They thought the image would be perfect for the cover of their new book that was to be published by The Crossroad Publishing Company. I received my copy today.
