Outraged Monks and Deryni Saint

Looking back into the 1980s again for me brings a flood of fan art. I drew a whole portfolio of Deryni fan art, some of them full page like this one. This illustration of a conclave of riled-up monks illustrates a moment in one of the "Camber" books when someone proposes the openly Deryni cleric for sainthood. Little do they know that the real live Camber is the tonsured priest at center right, in magical disguise. The other man with him is his son, the Deryni priest Joram.

Original drawing is ink on illustration board, 8 1/2" x 11", spring 1981. Click for a larger view.
