COLORING SHEETS

I firmly believe that children desire and deserve to see detailed, intelligent artwork. I am the father of four small children; my wife has begun homeschooling the older two. I like to give them coloring sheets to aid their artistic and religious education. Sadly, many of the coloring sheets available from religious publishers, or set out in the back of Catholic parishes, feature trite or undignified pictures. Many other parents have expressed their dissatisfaction with these to me. In the hope of providing a better option, I have formatted detail images from my own drawings as coloring sheets.

I hope that adults, too, will enjoy these. The popularity of adult coloring is, to me, an encouraging sign; too many adults have the idea that art is an activity for children, and that they are incapable of improving their own ability to draw. But drawing is an attainable skill; anyone who can write his name legibly can learn to do it. Coloring is a fine, unintimidating way to prompt artistic activity among people of all ages and all levels of current ability.

Please see also my published coloring books.

PATTERNS for SCRIBES and ARTISTS

Many medieval artists and scribes created sourcebooks: manuscripts filled with model ornamental borders, versals, alphabets and illustrations in which other artists and scribes would find inspiration, or that they would copy. Especially fine examples survive from the hands of Giovannino de'Grassi, Guido de Vicomercato and Gregorius Bock.

Here, I intend to offer something similar, based on my own artwork: letters, patterns and pictures that may be traced or imitated. You may also use them as coloring sheets, or as clip art (for nonprofit purposes only).

TYPOGRAPHIC BROADSIDES

I create my own typefaces. In my typography, as in my religious artwork, I want to make things that are both original and vigorously medieval. Please visit this page to read more about my typographic artwork.
