Scrolls

Matija Potocnik - AoA

It’s funny the way somethings fall together.  After being tapped for https://scrawlings.wtfwasithinking.org/2018/07/astridr-musi-order-of-the-maunche/ I was asked to the calligraphy for this scroll. I didn’t think too much of it initially as I hadn’t read the write-up for the other scroll.  While waiting on words for this scroll, I started the draft for the other and ran […]

Ástríðr Musi - Order of the Maunche

So another friend was tagged for a thing, a BIG thing, and I was asked to do not only the calligraphy, but the illumination too! I talked with my Laural and found a layout that would work for a 10th Century Scottish Viking.  The example I found didn’t offer everything I needed, but it was […]

Harvey Wynegode - Baronial Diamond

This was a fun scroll to take on.  Harvey Wynegode’s persona is of a 14c English Wine Merchant.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have a scroll blank fitting to the time or area, but I had plenty of time to come up with something.  I started by pawing through one of the books my Laurel loaned me, […]

Jean-Paul Ducasse - Writ for Laural

To say I was giddy when Lylie reached out to me for this would be an understatement.  Didn’t have to worry about the words, Alys was working on those.  The script was easy, Littera Bastarda because it’s really close to Batârde.  The execution though, that was the thing for me to noddle.  The big factor […]

Symon of Barnsdale - Order of the Silver Wheel

This was a fun scroll to dive into.  The more I learned about Symon, the more I wanted to nerd out on it.  He’s the Webminister to Carolingia, who just overhauled their web site.  A task similar to what I did when I took the Webminister spot for Concordia.  Not only has he been supporting […]

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 […]

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 […]
