illustration and calligraphy

So, someone asked to see some of the illustration (and calligraphy) I do. Mainly I do these for some monks in Missouri (Conception Abbey/The Printery House). The samples shown are a recent St. Paddy's Day card I did (potato print) and the bottom sample is from a 2014 wall calendar to come out next year (so don't tell anyone I'm showing it here, uh oh). I just got the entire job of illustrating and calligraphing the 2015 calendar, so I'll be busy for a couple of months and not painting (other than these fun type illustrations). The monks send me the texts and I go from there. Nice to work with them.
