Textura Quadratta

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 […]

Amia Turner - OSC

I was very happy to get a message from Fiona, letting me know that my apprentice sibling Amia was getting her Silver Crescent. I fired off a quick e-mail to the Tiger Signet (keeper of the scroll assignments) to put my name on the list for it, once the assignment was created. The words were […]

Symon of Barnsdale - Order of the Silver Wheel

This was a fun one!  As I started digging to see what I could do for Illumination and style, I found out that Symon is a fellow member of the Webministry, on the Kingdom level.  Because the idea was a little… “out there” I ran the idea by the submitter, who ran it by Symon’s […]

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 […]

Cailleach Dhe ingen Chiarain - Silver Wheel

Another beautiful collaboration with Lisa Cotton!  She’d posted on the EK Scribe site in a panic, looking for a scribe to do calligraphy.  Because I’ll also be going to the event it’s to be delivered to, I offered to help. The fact that the source was written in Textura Quadrata gave me confidence that I […]

Harvey Wynegode - Baronial Diamond

This was a fun scroll to take on.  Harvey Wynegode’s persona is of a 14c English Wine Merchant.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have a scroll blank fitting to the time or area, but I had plenty of time to come up with something.  I started by pawing through one of the books my Laurel loaned me, […]

Therion Sean Storie - OGR

This was an interesting one on the back end.  I received word from my wife that our Baron had decided I was going to do the calligraphy for this one.  About a week later he messages me on Facebook asking if I had time to get it done.  Lady Emma Makilmone of Bergental was already […]

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 […]
