I updated the page for scrolls with the latest one I finished that was given out.

I took a commission for October Crown Tourney, a Lindquistringe (Drachenwald service award) and because I like it went with my favourite original MS Digby 36 at the Bodleian for the style.

However, I looked a little more closely at the original after I had inked the borders and realized that I have done some personalizations with the style, adding much more curves, and changing the ratio of different leaf shapes in the borders. I’m using the same colours, and so on, but there is definitely a change from the original. I don’t mind it, as I like the way it turns out, but I might try something in the future closer to the source. Unless, as the last couple of things I’ve taken on are showing, I will go with entirely different styles of scrolls for a bit.

I’m currently working on a pair of scrolls in landscape orientation, more document-style than illuminated page.

Anyway, check out the updated scrolls page!

Also, at Crown Tourney, where this Lindquistringe scroll was handed out, their Majesties also called me up to receive the Lindquistringe! I was entirely surprised and so honoured. A new scroll (by Mistress Bridget – squee!) to frame for me. Hurray.
