I have recently joined this group and wish to introduce myself. My name is David and I am a commercial graphic artist and 3D illustrator based in Australasia. I have been discerning a vocation or lay apostolate in icon writing and we are about to move to a new house (God willing) that will have the appropriate creative space where I can pursue this more purposefully. Up till now I have been painting icons using Photoshop and a Wacom Tablet and the above sample is a reproduction of Our Lady of Tenderness from the Solrunn Nes book that has been mentioned elsewhere. However in the process of painting icons this way I have come to realise that in order for the icon to be truly authentic it must be painted in traditional media. There are some very good theological reasons for this. Where we live there are no Schools of iconography so I'm pretty much going to have to teach myself along with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to contributing to this sketch blog and I look forward to seeing your work and posts. I have very much enjoyed what I have seen already.
