In the fall of 2010, the pastor at Grace Episcopal Church in Anderson, SC asked me if I could design a banner for the church. Since the church is so much more than the building in which it is contained, he did not want the banner to contain an image of the church building itself. Instead, he wanted to focus on the four gospels. In the Book of Kells and other Medieval manuscripts, the four gospel writers (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) were symbolized as a winged man/angel, a winged lion, a winged ox, and an eagle.
Future posts will offer a sneak peak into the story and illustrations for the upcoming book!
