Illustration was actually the first media I used with Celtic art designing.  As long as I have been doing it I always tend to find that there is a lot more to learn.  It has a very strong route with calligraphy in the making of countless manuscripts, and there are many kinds of illustration that are considered "lost art" today.  Some of these things can be saved but maybe not to the full potential they once had.

The techniques that I have worked on the most are wax resist (which is basically a colored scratch board) and hand painting illustrations using, ink, casein, or egg tempera.  

The block prints are made with linoleum coated blocks that are carved and the images are printed from these.  I can do some other little things to the prints however if you want something more unique, like adding a different color or gold leaf for highlights.  There are many possibilities and I will try to show you some of them to give you ideas.
