For anyone who has ever produced quality reproduction art they will know that Padre Art's work is of an exceedingly high standard. Reproduction art is very time consuming and requires a lot of love and ability on the part of the artist to faithfully reproduce art which has gone before us and bring it up to a standard worthy of a high quality print. Having done reproduction art myself, I know the intricacies that are involved, and despite the idea already having been created, often much data is missing, and it is that that requires a careful eye and sense of what once was.
Padre Art does just that!
