    Fr. Silouan, Just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed and learned from your last two articles! You write as well as you write icons!

    Fr. Silouan, great article. I have to go back and read it again since I just sped through it at work ^_^.

    That being said, this issue has been on my mind lately given that my painting process is half traditional half digital. It actually started with the article featuring the interview with Stephane Rene, where he expressed his dislike for digital artists pretending to be iconographers.

    While I clearly see the line and difference between an icon and digital illustrations of saints, it makes me wonder if this work I’m doing is of any value. Putting the goal of the service aside (which is to engage today’s youth on social media using these timely quick-to-produce illustrations to help them live the church calendar throughout the week), it feels like I am better off taking the time to learn iconography and paint proper icons.

    I’m still not at peace with this idea, but this article is helping me sort it out in my head, there is still hope! There might yet be spirit in illustrations. 😀
