I’ve tried to draw; I’ve tried to write; I’ve tried to try to draw and write, but I’ve not been coming up with much.
I can give you a picture of St. Patrick though, with details inspired by wanderings through George Bain’s book Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction.
Here are a couple of neat links – you can check out cartoons made by Flannery O’Connor here; and you can see some Art Deco style drawings by William Faulkner here.
A generous friend recently gave me the book To Bless the Space Between Us by John O’Donahue.
I was grateful for her thoughtfulness, and started reading it right away. I was taken aback, and wrote a critique, intending to post it here. I decided instead that a two-line summary would be sufficient, so here it is: John O’Donahue, I earnestly pray that God rests your soul and that we merrily meet in heaven. Your book though, is largely rubbish.
Here is a picture inspired by the designs of George Bain. Incidentally, drawing + Celtic design + chickens = happiness.
