Lorita de Siena

James Hawk Galloway - Order of the Burdened Tyger

I was pretty jazzed when I was approached for this one.  James “Hawk”, has been a good friend of the family for a while.  I was a little surprised that Hawk didn’t already have this award. Reaching out to the point of contact for additional information was a blast.  He spun a great tale of […]

Francisco de Braga - AoA

Words: Greetings unto the populace of the East.  Pay heed all who hear these words that Ivan and Matilde, Tsar and Tsaritsa of the East have heard great tales of the service of Francisco de Braga.  At Novice Schola, long hours did he spend in their Majesties’ kitchen, making ready the pots and pans for […]

Allaster del Blair - AoA

Another collaborative scroll with Lorita de Siena.  The second where we’d changed up the order of operations.  Words and calligraphy were put down on paper and then handed off to Lorita. It took a load of stress off, but I didn’t get to see the final piece.  I had a bit of fun with this […]

Siona Dunleavy - AoA

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 […]

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.
