DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
This is an ink drawing on a 5" × 7" piece of Bristol board. I drew it using technical pens and calligraphers’ inks applied with dip pens and brushes.
The original was created on private commission, to commemorate the ordination of a priest.
The central image shows a priest celebrating Mass, using the ordinand's chalice and chasuble. The Hand of God the Father reaches through the heavens to bless the sacrifice.
I drew saints especially dear to the patron in the borders; Our Lady of Walsingham, St. Athanasius, St. John Chrysostom, St. John Fisher and John Henry Cardinal Newman. Below Athanasius, the words Quicumque Vult appear in a stylized interlocking form; the honeycomb below John Chrysostom is a traditional symbol of a great orator.
