This is the first artwork I've done in six months that didn't make me sick when I looked at it. I did it last night when I couldn't sleep. It's 100% Adobe Illustrator and I modeled St. Ignatius from a fellow Jesuit named Joe Laramie SJ. I was going for a contemplative and meditative expression, but I didn't want to close his eyes (I think I remember Chesterton explaining why Catholic saints are always depicted with opened eyes - anyone know where?). Hopefully the swirley doo-dads and stars/moon help get the mystical feel across without looking too fruity.
Hope y'all like it!
Jesuit John (Brown, S.J.)
PS, Any techniques for getting over artists block?
