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 […]

Order of the Silver Brooch

Yesterday I was honored to become a companion of the Order of the Silver Brooch for my efforts in Calligraphy and Illumination!  I was absolutely taken aback and was NOT expecting any recognition.  My wonderful friend Heather Rose did the scroll and made sure to track me down after court to congratulate me in person. […]

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 […]

Bergsveinn Hondbrotna - Order of the Silver Tyger

So this past Saturday was the 100 Minutes War in North New Jersey. I dropped off a scroll at East Kingdom Royal (EKR) and noticed the clerk looking worried. Come to find out that there may have been some miscommunication on a scroll assignment due that day. I let her know, if she needs any […]

Garith Greylever - Award of Arms

I had the pleasure to again work with Lorita.  The timing of the pieces worked out very nicely.  I had plenty of time to put a little more polish on my Insular Half-Uncial. Words:  Unto all who hear these words that We, Brion King and Anna Queen of the East, have found the many services […]

Katharine Slough - OSC

Another fine collaboration with Lady Lisabetta Medaglia.  This one went wonderfully!  After we accepted the assignment she was able to get me the dimensions for the calligraphy space.  While she started her layout I got to work on my first actual wordsmithing.  Thanks to the class I took at Pennsic, I felt much more comfortable in […]

Wynefryd Bredhers - Order of the Silver Wheel

Holy gold on a Silver Wheel!  By the time the pieces all came together, I had roughly 3 and a half days to get this done. Your nose was on time, but you were fifteen minutes late.  – Roxxane (movie) The assignment came in, the scroll came in, there was communication issues on the words, […]
