St. Peter Claver coloring page

Today is the feast of St. Peter Claver. For his page, I wanted to get down to it and show him in the hold of a slave ship, though I'm sure I didn't draw it as awful as it really would have been.

As I've been doing this coloring book project, themes seem to develop for each month. They come from a combination of what the feasts are, what scenes I choose to show, and my interpretation and experience thereof. This work is kind of becoming my prayer life, (because I'm not very good at maintaining a regular one ^^; ) so it's quite personal. May's theme was emotion, June's action; July's a 'haunting' nature. So for September, with this, Our Lady of Sorrows, the Korean Martyrs, Padre Pio, Januarius, Lorenzo Ruiz who was martyred via tsurushi, etc., the theme to me was suffering.
