When a text layout isn't straightforward
I've been pushing myself lately, not because I was told to but because I felt it was time. So with this AoA for a Middle Eastern persona I decided to get into the two sized texts that the Ottomans loved so much. And I found an excellent piece for it. This i...

Comedy/Tragedy in a Borre style
I was sent an assignment, and I haven't gotten one yet that I've turned down. I knew I would be able to accept this, and it only got better when I read who it was for- someone I know who is deeply deserving of the honor of the Order of Troubadour. I also kn...

Adding Arms and Blazon

Urnes style AoA
Or, Aaradyn goes Minimalist The SCA as a whole has a lot of Vikings. I think that's awesome, but it makes doing original scrolls tricky. See, the Vikings didn't illuminate the way other cultures did. This forces us scribes to think outside the box. Or page....

Goldwork for a Silver Wheel
Goldleaf is not my strong suit. I'm getting better, but yeah... it's definitely something I need to work on.  For this piece, the goal was even application and straight lines. I didn't quite achieve that, but I am happy with the piece nonetheless.  This is ...

French in the month of May
At Pennsic I was asked if I was interested in doing a page for the East Kingdom calendar 2018. Truth be told, I was overjoyed! I don't think I jumped up and down when Mistress Rhonwen asked me, but I might have... I love the French style of artwork, and so ...

An AoA in the style of a Carpet Page
Every now and again I get an assignment for someone I actually know - these, honestly, are the best and the hardest assignments. Pressure! But the good kind ;) When I received this assignment, I immediately reached out to get confirmation on some ideas I ha...

A new year, a new role
At Crown last year I spoke with the East Kingdom Clerk Signet and after much agreement and some reassurance on both sides I took on the role of Central Region Deputy to the Clerk Signet. I'm happy to have the chance to serve the Kingdom in a role I've serve...

A map in the style of Tolkien
I was asked to do a map for the Battle of 5 Armies and, of course, I said yes. Pass up a chance to paint Smaug on a map????? Never! So, a few weeks, a lot of acrylic, a portable backdrop stand, and a paint drop cloth later... here's the 5' high by 9.5' wide...

A Celt AoA with a monster
I love the monster at the end of this scroll. I painted it because I wanted to work more on having an element of the design holding the shield, not just a shield in free space. The three headed monster from this page was the inspiration for the whole piece....
