Kay Leigh Mac Whyte - Order of the Sagittarius

This was a fun one. Kay Leigh is another EK Scribe that I’ve known from the start of my scribal adventures in the SCA. The reply to the assignment was nothing less than “HELLS YES!” Reading through the write-up, I found myself slightly stuck. Her husband, Ryan Mac Whyte, had done the submission and had […]

Gerhardt von Hohensee - OGR

I was finally able to get myself together enough to take on another assignment. This time an OGR for another German fencer! Thus I turned to my favorite Fraktur resources. I love doing Fraktur scrolls from this source. The bits of flashy gold, minimal colors, red lines, and red ink sketches. It’s a bit of […]

Remy Delemontagne da Gascogne - Silver Crecent

Of no fault of Remy, this was a very challenging scroll to work on. When I got the assignment, I was ready and willing to make it happen and give it my all. Then, I have no idea what happened, but the scroll surely didn’t happen. The scroll was assigned in February, due in April […]

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 […]
