So, I found out the hard way that I didn’t have a current snapshot of the server this site is hosted on after we had a power outage.  I lost about 3 months of various posts.   I’ll be re-posting the scrolls, but other posts are lost.  So please bare with me as I try […]

Ástríðr Musi - Order of the Maunche

So a good friend reached out to me and asked if I’d like to do a Maunche for her Apprentice.  I think I said yes before I realized what she was asking.  Once the decision was official, the research began.  I messaged Ástríðr’s husband for ideas, found out more about her persona, and it all […]

Symon of Barnsdale - Order of the Silver Wheel

This was a fun one!  As I started digging to see what I could do for Illumination and style, I found out that Symon is a fellow member of the Webministry, on the Kingdom level.  Because the idea was a little… “out there” I ran the idea by the submitter, who ran it by Symon’s […]

Jean-Paul du Casse - Write for Laurel

Baroness Lylie of Penhyll reached out to me for her Barons write!  I was beside myself with glee.  As writs are supposed to be kept simple, I really couldn’t add any illumination.  I’d have to rely on the text and while Textura Quadrata is flourishing, I could not help but add my own touch of […]

James Hawk Galloway - Order of the Burdened Tyger

I was pretty jazzed when I was approached for this one.  James “Hawk”, has been a good friend of the family for a while.  I was a little surprised that Hawk didn’t already have this award. Reaching out to the point of contact for additional information was a blast.  He spun a great tale of […]

Francisco de Braga - AoA

Words: Greetings unto the populace of the East.  Pay heed all who hear these words that Ivan and Matilde, Tsar and Tsaritsa of the East have heard great tales of the service of Francisco de Braga.  At Novice Schola, long hours did he spend in their Majesties’ kitchen, making ready the pots and pans for […]

Cailleach Dhe ingen Chiarain - Silver Wheel

Another beautiful collaboration with Lisa Cotton!  She’d posted on the EK Scribe site in a panic, looking for a scribe to do calligraphy.  Because I’ll also be going to the event it’s to be delivered to, I offered to help. The fact that the source was written in Textura Quadrata gave me confidence that I […]

Italian Scroll Blank

A while back I’d picked up a copy of The Prayer Book of Michelino Da Besozzo.  It’s got a lot of nice examples from the original prayer book to include illumination and calligraphy.   I’d planned on using one of the plates for a scroll at some point.  The last time I went to visit […]

Terry Pratchett Quote

Originally this had been done as a fun quote piece in my practice book.  It turned out REALLY well, and I shared it on various social media.  Katie fell in love with it.  Neither of us could convince me to cut it from my book, so she requested a framable recreation. The original was done […]

Birth Announcement

My friend Keziah requested a custom berth announcement scroll for some friends of hers.  Turnes out they’re huge Lord of the Rings fans.  As I’m steadfast against teaching myself Tengwar (the official elvish script of LotR) I decided to go with Insular Miniscule and Insular Half-Uncial.  the Miniscule is close to Tengwar, and the Half-Uncial I […]
