Saints Alive!

I'm working on a big series of saint illustrations this month. I probably shouldn't post the full pictures yet, but here are a few snippets:



The saints pictured above are (left to right and top to bottom):
-Margaret of Scotland
-Rose of Lima
-St. Joseph and the christ Child
-Saint Paul
-Catherine of Siena
-Augustine
-Vincent de Paul

I'll try to post some full-sized images one of these days soon!

Margaret of Scotland AND Catherine of Siena. Awesome.

And, mad props for a strong looking St. Joseph. I always hate how effeminate people make St. Joseph sometimes. Bravo!

Are these going to be available for purchase, possibly in a book? I have a 1-year-old and another due in February and would love to have the pics for the kids.

As far as i know, these will be made into 5X7 trading card-style prints. Probably with the saints story printed on the back. I'll... post more information about these when I know it -so keep checking back!

Ooooh - trading cards. I like it. My KIDS will definitely like it!

Looking good, Ben. I'd encourage you to vary their expressions a bit if possible.

St. Rose of Lima should be wearing a white robe, since she was Dominican. I like her face, though.
