Some recent work, Enjoy!:

A Synaxis of Archangels

A Synaxis of Archangels, a contemporary take based on a traditional icon. This was painted for the Feast of Archangels.

I was commissioned to do an update on my “Angel with the Thurible.” The client wanted a more masculine take. The original pen and ink was sent to the client and I digitally painted a copy for prints.

City on a Hill

This last is a 5″X5″ pen and ink exercise, I don’t do these as often as I should but it’s great practice.


Opportunity for Illustrators


I received an email from a gentleman looking for an illustrator for a story that he wrote for his children. With his permission I am posting his request to the group.

“The story is my attempt to introduce my kids to (what I view as) concepts foundational to our Catholic Christian faith – specifically the distinct miracles of: creation, physical order, life, and human life; our call to sacrifice for others, and the concept of redemptive suffering.
I’m wondering if you might know of a few illustrators that would be open to discussing the project with me – and could point me to their website and/or contact info.
Thank you.”

The Christian Comic-Con


The Catholic News Agency has a great story about Doxacon, a Christian Sci-Fi Fantasy Convention that just had its 5th annual event in Washington D.C.. I had not heard of it and I was wondering if any  other members had? They had about 100 people attending and the panels sound very intriguing. They definitely seem to need help getting the word out.

There’s a nice write up about Ben over at Catholic Register.

My favorite takeaway:

“The rights to his first graphic novel, Zita the Spacegirl, was picked up recently by Fox for a movie and there is hope that one day Hatke’s brave characters will make it to the big screen”

I know it’s still a long shot but how cool would a Zita Spacegirl movie be?

Kudos Ben!
