Customer snaphot with St Monica Happy Saint Shirt!

My friend, John, whom I knew from 4marks, has sent me this beautiful snapshot of himself in a St. Monica Happy Saint t-shirt. My initial reaction was the fantastic quality of the photo taken, and John is not even a professional! 






Here're some photography tips from him: "Here is a photo of St. Monica from Happy Saints two hours before sunrise in downtown Spring Lake, NJ. I took the photo with a Nikon D5000 D-SLR with a Nikon SB-900 Speedlight using F5.6 and 1.6-second exposure and slow-sync."


As for the artwork on the t-shirt, of course I am thrilled. John is also quite happy with the quality of the material, "The quality is excellent. I bought two long sleeve polyester "athletic style" shirts and they are wonderful."

Mother Teresa merchandise finally up!

I am pleased to announce that my Mother Teresa artwork merchandise is finally approved by Zazzle and the following are now available at my store: t-shirts, mugs, tote bags and button badges. They were previously rejected because apparently the Missionaries of Charity own the copyright to Mother Teresa's name, images and quotes. After a few weeks of correspondence with the good sisters at Mother Teresa Center, they have finally granted permission to me to use her image! Please visit my Happy Saints store to see the complete range!

Welcome to the Happy Saints gallery!

Hi, this gallery showcases my artwork of the beloved Saints of God, whom I call 'Happy Saints'. This title is inspired by St. Alphosus Liguori's quote that 'those who love God are always happy'. I created these cute and happy saints cartoon in the hope to generate more interest in the saints, especially among today's young and young-at-heart, who are immersed in a world of rock stars, pop idols and sports celebrities. May the Saints of God guide us all back to true happiness in Christ!


God bless you and I love to hear your comment!
