Personal project - illustration of St. Francis and an altar to place him in.
making progress on the illustration - almost ready for color then building them into the altars I built.
Built two of these over the past couple weekends to house the patron saint illustrations I’m working on - great challenge to work with wood and try and create something authentic looking.
Actually wrote a blog instead of just showing illustrations…
Logo sketch that ended up dying. Fun though.
New series getting started - had visited a museum at the University of Arizona with my wife and daughter and saw some great renaissance paintings of saints. The visual framing of them in small niches was really cool as was the very vertical feel to them - so I decided to apply that look to a series of illustrations featuring the patron saints of my kids. I’m a huge fan of iconography in religion so these will be great to do and add in some subtle elements.
Thanks for the note - as for your question - resolution is always confusing, but the simplest way to approach it is to set a target size - pedal craft (I think) is 24in x 36in, then set the resolution - minimum of 300 dpi for print is best - I sometimes go to 450 just to have some extra pixels for resizing. It makes for massive files, but they look better printed. If you work in Illustrator, it’s vector art and the pixel resolution won’t matter since vectors scale through math vs. pixels. Hope that helps - cheers!
