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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
