Laudato Si’ Illuminated Manuscript

This is a piece currently on display at “The Green Show,” an annual color-themed exhibition hosted by DrewBoy Creative in Richland, Washington.

I thought up the idea for this piece while watching The Secret of Kells on New Years Eve. It’s a movie featuring the Book of Kells, a very famous illuminated manuscript, and I figured it’d be fun to make a page in the same style. The text comes from Pope Francis’s recent encyclical on climate change and environmental stewardship, Laudato Si’.
