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, […]

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 […]

Ban of Wintermoor - AoA

My first collaboration with Aislinn at her request.  The night before the event she called me because she was unable to complete the scroll herself.  The morning of the event I used Walnut ink and Bastard Secretary (a nice fast script to write) to crank it out in about two hours.  Thank goodness she used […]

Marjorie Parmentar - AoA

My second work with Lorita.  This one done in Bastard Secretary.  Admittedly it’s a little late period and english, but I didn’t have the time to learn Bâtarde, which would have been more appropriate.  I had some issues with my inks on the paper.  The read feathered slightly, but the red feathered a LOT.  Disappointingly […]

Temyl zwie Breuken - AoA

This was my first of two collaborative scrolls with Lorita.  For this one I picked up Fraktur script to help with the presentation of the scroll as Temyl’s persona is German.  The words were also translated to german. Calligraphy:  Lord Faolán an Sccreccain Illumination:  Lorita de Siena Words:  Lorita de Siena      

Maegwyn att Gearboerg - AoA

This was my first collaboration work.  I had the pleasure of working with Fiona O’Maille, a Laurel who’m I’m apprenticed too.  She did a great job on the layout and illumination. I feel as though I did an okay job on the calligraphy.  I wish I was more familiar with proper wording layout.  I did a […]
