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, […]

Olivia Baker - Order of the Sapphire

For this years War of the Roses (Go York!) I had the pleasure of working with Lady Elisabeth Greenleaf.  Elisabeth did a “woodcut” style from 16th Century England.  I chose to accompany it with Littera Bastarda (Bastard Secretary), 13th Century and onward.  Elisabeth was able to get words to me with measurements of my working area […]

Sorcha Inghean Duinn - AoA

This was an interesting scroll to work on.  Baroness Lillian atte Valeye did an awesome job on the Illumination.  The only spot that wasn’t done was the arms.  When the request first came though there was an error in the name, so there was not arms associated.  That wasn’t fixed until after I’d received the […]

Geoffrey de Tosni - SC

It was nice to have a scroll to do that wasn’t at a break-neck pace.  I picked up the scroll blank for this at the 2016 Marketplace at Birka when it just so happened that there was an Order of the Silver Crescent on the backlog list.  I had fun taking a little liberty with […]

Quick Sign for Marias Birthday party

Mostly freehand work.  Needed to do a quick sign to let people know the parking situation for our party.  I used baselines and eyeballed the rest based on the nib width of the pen.  It’s “sloppy work” but I’m pretty happy with my uprights and most of the letter forms/heights given the amount of room […]
