Scrolls

Joel Messerer - Writ

To say I was blown away when Amanda (Aife) reached out to me for this writ was an understatement.  Then our Baroness of Concordia of the Snows reached out to me as well, I was floored.  It was another week or so before the official writ was requested through the Tiger Signet, which I all […]

Christine of Serpentius - AoA

Two weeks before the due date, I woke up to a request from Dutchess Etheldreda asking me if I was able to take on this scroll. Without a second though, I said yes. Viking persona, AoA for learning to sew and taking on thrown weapons. Not much to work with, but the challenge was accepted. […]

Nuala MacKensie - AoA

After cranking out a few Baronial awards based off of the Vespasian Psalter, I wanted to change it up a bit.  That style is nice and relatively simple. For this scroll, I wanted to change it up a bit, so I grabbed inspiration from the Book of Kells.  The overall layout is still from the […]

Allaster del Blair - AoA

Another collaborative scroll with Lorita de Siena.  The second where we’d changed up the order of operations.  Words and calligraphy were put down on paper and then handed off to Lorita. It took a load of stress off, but I didn’t get to see the final piece.  I had a bit of fun with this […]

Lord Padraig O'Riein - Baronial Sapphire

Most recipants I get to know after they’ve received their scrolls.  This is one of the few, where not only did I know him before he got the scroll, but got to do the whole thing myself.  If I could change anything it would be to do it larger and find a better way to […]

Meadbhb Hawtin - Order of the Silver Rams Horn

  The second scroll that I’ve done completely on my own.  There were some lessons learned, but it was a fun project.  For my skills at the time, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Materials:  Archers Hot-pressed paper, Guache, Iron Gall ink, Dragonsblood ink, Windsor & Newton Silver ink, and Pelikan Gold paint. […]

Eyvindr Bjarnylr - Order of the Ram’s Horn

Didn’t know much about this recipient.  There wasn’t much of a write-up, but I was able to get in touch with Skarp, and get his side of the story.  I wish I had a little more room to add some more detail. I used a larger brush for the dots, though the bristles weren’t even, […]

Siona Dunleavy - AoA

Another collaboration with Lorita and I gotta say, this one turned out really well.  We changed things up a bit due to the amount of lead time we had.  I had the opportunity to come up with words, the paper, and finish the calligraphy before having the Illumination done.  I have to say, it made […]

Therion Sean Storie - OGR

This was an interesting one on the back end.  I received word from my wife that our Baron had decided I was going to do the calligraphy for this one.  About a week later he messages me on Facebook asking if I had time to get it done.  Lady Emma Makilmone of Bergental was already […]
