Maria Erika von Ossenheim - Writ for Pelican

This was an adventure to work on. For those not in the know, Maria is my wife. She knew I was working on something but wasn’t sure what. She suspected something was up. It’s rare that I work on a scroll and not say anything about it, and I wasn’t saying anything. The turnaround on […]

Simon Talbot - Augmentation of Arms

And with that, another Webminister has received a scroll made by me, this time Simon Talbot. Simon was honored along with the rest of the Webministry for the services provided during the “Weyrd Tymes” of 2020. I took this opportunity to go back to Cadels. For as stressful as they are to try and map, […]

Isabel del Okes - Order of the Maunche

Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures on my work on this scroll. It’s one of the most unique I’ve done yet. I was asked by my Laurel to do the calligraphy on my Apprentice Sibling’s Maunch scroll. Because Isable specializes in book making, we made her scroll in the shape of a book. Navigating the […]

Today I was awarded the Consorts Award of Esteem from Consul Alberic von Rostock. At the start of his reign, he asked for assistance in coming up with a signature for scroll signing. I was more than happy to provide several examples of possible signatures for both his personal persona and that of the Reign, […]

Douglass Doan - OSC

I was so happy to be asked for this assignment! And then all the life happened. Lots of outside family events started to take up all my time and energy. Wording became hard, calligraphy was difficult, and the Cadel took a long time to learn. On the upside, I was able to teach myself to […]

Lady Ellynor Redpath - OSW

2020 has been a trying year. The stress of all that”s been going on though the year has taken its toll on my drive to art. The few assignments I”ve received have helped considerably. This one was a rough one. My brain kept flipping between complex and simple. In the end, a simple take on […]

This was one of those scrolls that just kind of fell into my lap. Audry”s student, Octavia had worked on the illumination and Audrye ran short on time to do the calligraphy, so she asked me to help out. The words were zen scrolled during the recording of court. Zen Scroll: scroll text that is […]

Astryda Borowska - Order of the Silver Crecent

Took on this assignment and was at a loss for what to do for illumination. I”d did some searching through the EK Wiki and browsed through her husband”s blog but had a really hard time coming up with ideas. So I set upon creating the words to see if that would give me some inspiration, […]

Tyger Scribes in Trying Times

At the beginning of the 2020 lockdowns in the Eastkingdom, our Signet and a few others came up with an idea for an auction to help fund the making of masks. The Scribes of the east, Tyger Scribes as we would be dubbed, were light on projects and were in need of a pick-me-up and […]

Wine ink (part 1)

Back in September of 2019, while packing to move, I”d stumbled across two partial bottles of red wine. A sniff test told me that they were pretty much undrinkable. I”d be a shame to throw them out, besides, red wines have tannins, right? Also, I thought I”d read that wine was sometimes used as ink. […]
