Left-handed Project (part 1)

,

So this post had me thinking a lot about my friends who are left-handed. Several of which have lamented not being able to do calligraphy. Tonight was the first night I sat down and did a full quote in Foundational script with my left hand. In hindsight, it would have been easier to start with […]

Roy de Basillion - OSR

Do you know what makes me feel awesome? Having someone reach out to me and ask me to work on a scroll for or with them. This was one of those assignments. Basically, everything was put into motion and the Signet notified right before the assignment hit the queue. Anne and I started collaboration immediately […]

Kenneric Aubrey - OSB

And this is how you end up with multiple assignments, knowing people. A Facebook group chat was formed and I found myself in the middle of happy exclamations that this was, in fact, going to be a thing! I”d written Kenneric in for a Silver Brooch, but it didn”t get much traction. This time, however, […]

Alastar Tucker - OSB

I”ll admit, I was a little giddy when the Signet reached out to me about this assignment. I already had two others on my plate for the end of the month, but they were calligraphy only. I”m quite happy that through some careful planning I was able to wiggle this into the space between the […]

Fujimoto Dorthy- OTE

And there I was, sitting in the Sanctuary, practicing some calligraphy when I hear “Faolán! Drop what you”re doing and grab your kit!” another Event Expedient Scroll was about to become a thing. Our Queen had struck again, this time with three new companions to the Order of the Tyger”s Eye, given to the teens […]

Lady Hilde Perdue - OSB

This was a fun one. Originally we had not planned to go to the Barony Beyond the Mountain / Bergental Yule. A friend was getting elevated to the Order of the Pelican, but we didn”t think we could swing the logistics of it. Our friend, Jen, offered up her family to dog-sit Ivy, in exchange […]

Muirenn Ingen Broein Meic Riain - AoA

This scroll was a trial. It just didn”t” want to be. The first attempt was going really well. The paper and ink were getting along pretty well. It was a recycled paper that I”d inherited and I used Noodler”s Bulletproof Black, which is a pretty well-behaved ink. There were some spots that had not been […]

Kyra - AoA

Short quick Award of arms. Her Highness Margarita of the East was listed as the point of contact. She was able to provide some information that I could use for the words. Words: Let it be known to all that We, Luis Rei and Margarita Reina of the East have found the many good works […]

Matthias von Wurzburg - OSC

Another scroll for a member of the Webministry (sysadmins and web administrators). I was doubly surprised when I was sapped for this as not only was it for someone in the East Kindom (EK) Webministry, but it was also submitted by a good friend of mine, Joel (Lord) Messerer. Joel provided a wonderfully rich write-up […]

Wedding Invite: Lindy and Ernst

I had the honor of being requested to create the master copy for a Wedding invite for two really good friends. Lindy chose the script and formatting and Ernst provided the words. Uncial Script DeAtramentus Document Black Ink (nice and dark for copying) Archers hot press paper.
