Drawing an initial sketch on my tablet. Painting icons of contemporary saints is difficult as people are familiar with their photos. The tricky part is maintaining their form in the byzantine style so that they are recognizable without simply painting a naturalistic portrait in a "byzantine manner".

I have often been asked by people all over the world if I teach iconography workshops. To try and fulfill this need I started making iconography video tutorials on YouTube. These require a great deal of time, effort and expense and like all artists I still need to pay my rent and bills. That is where Patreon comes in. If you enjoy and benefit from these video tutorials you now have the opportunity to support this work and keep it going by coming a Patron. This will help cover the costs of materials and equipment and will allow me to make more videos. It will also allow me to do more creative work besides commissions.
Besides the video tutorials, my patrons will also have exclusive access to other projects including my New Ecclesiastical Year's resolution to , God willing, make a daily sketch of one of the Saints of the day.
Any support is greatly appreciated and will benefit not only myself, but those who want to learn iconography. Thank you.
