Magic Bishop

Here's some more vintage artwork from my "Deryni Portfolio." I did a whole collection of black and white character and scene drawings from the works of Katherine Kurtz, way back in the Middle Ages. This character is a Bishop who is secretly one of the magically endowed Deryni. I know it's "InkTober" month encouraging artists to make ink drawings one a day but I am overwhelmed with photo processing and when I get to the studio it's on the Cintiq which allows me to do "digital" inking which looks just like the real thing except for the mess and the blots and the sticky points. But it's not real ink, it's magic.

"Bishop Arilan" is real black ink on illustration board, 2" x 4 1/2", 1981.
