I began with the Mark 7:16 project back in 2011

All these years later, I finally picked up an inspirational book of images from the Book of Kells by the Keeper of Manuscripts at Trinity College Library in Dublin, Bernard Meehan. The nice thing about this book is that it provides larger than life details of illustrations in the book.

I also picked up a copy of The Gospels and Acts  an excerpt from St. John’s Bible from illuminator Donald Jackson at St. John’s University in MN, USA.

Now I have what I need to decide how to proceed with the Mark 7:16 project and related works. This project was originally inspired by the Book of Kells and my years of practice and work in calligraphy.

Here is my original concept art:
