DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
I drew St. Peter the Apostle on an approximately 4 1/2" × 6 1/4" piece of Egyptian papyrus, using black, red, blue and green calligraphers’ inks applied with metal-tipped dip penss.
My inspiration here was 15th century Italian art. The border is similar to those of manuscripts illuminated in the white-vine style. The halo, like those in paintings by Gentile da Fabriano, resembles a gold platter from Mamluk Egypt, with false Arabic calligraphy (here spelling the words Amen and Alleluia repeatedly.
