Iconography

Various Icons on wood panels.  I started buying wood plaques for Free Art Fridays, since they tend to fare better in the outdoors (There was a tendency to rain after I put art out).  I started out with small 3 inch panels, and slowly moved up.  Some were done with a wood burning tools and paint markers, while the larger ones are acrylic and ink.

I recently picked some USPS labels and decided among other things to draw up some new dinosaurs.  It’s been a while since I’ve drawn some terrible lizards, and along with the state of the Postal Service right now, it seemed more fitting than ever.

Gouache and graphite on 9×12 watercolor paper. Available for sale, prints to be available soon.

Revisiting old themes with new ideas.  I’m really enjoying these and expect to do quite a few more.  I’m getting the hang of using gouache paint (and wishing I had started earlier!), and had been missing working in pencil.  Making this illustration made me wonder about what a dinosaur based theology would be like.  The idea of combining dinosaurs and religious symbolism seems like an interesting idea.   Don’t be surprised by some Byzantine/Orthodox style dinosaur saint illustrating this absurd idea appearing soon!
