Computer Angel

I designed this image for a communications-themed card for a prayer group I belong to. Most of my fellows in this group are tech professionals of one sort or another. So I created a computer angel. Gabriel, one of the Four Archangels, is the patron of communications, so I depicted him/her as working with a computer, with small pen and stylus tools in his/her pocket. I imitated an old-fashioned woodcut style to illustrate what was the state of the art back in the 1990s. They didn't have flat screens or tablets or smartphones then. 

Original drawing is ink on illustration board, 5" x 7", November 1996.
