Even though I wasn't able to go to Lilies War this year for varying reasons, I still had scrolls that made it to Lilies. The first scroll was assigned from Calontir Battle Scribes. Calontir Battle Scribes allows people to ask for scrolls for prizes at events, allowing people to attempt original pieces with regard to … Continue reading Post-Lilies War Scroll Roundup
No rest for the wicked, really. No sooner had I completed John's scroll, I got contacted by the Royal Scribe again on if I could get another scroll done. Now, this one had a challenge of time, with it being given out two weeks after I had gotten the assignment. Thankfully, for this scroll, I'm … Continue reading Calon Cross for Gawin Käppler
Now that things are starting to kick back into gear, courts are happening again, and life is slowly starting to return to a new sense of "normal," it also means that my scribal slate is starting to fill with activities and assignments again. Back around the very end of last year, I got asked "hey, … Continue reading Silver Hammer for John Bowyer and other good news
Hi all. I know, it's been a bit since I last blogged. With the global shutdown, and with my modern job heavily tied to taking care of contingencies just like this, I didn't have much time to devote to the Society. . .until I could then devote some time to my arts, for a bit. … Continue reading Creative Anachronism in the Time of Corona(virus)
Finally! I got another thing checked off my list of backlog projects! We had a fundraiser for tents for Heralds' Point and for arts and sciences for Lilies War, and I offered a heraldic achievement using gold leaf. Unfortunately, my life got a bit busy, and this got put on the back burner. I finally … Continue reading Thaddeus’ Achievement of Arms
Looking back at my SCA resolutions from last year, and I got none of them done. Sigh. Not. A. One. Now, to be fair, my modern work life was in a crap-ton of flux, but I'm hoping for much smoother sailing this year. Goals #1 (actually finish a project before taking on another one) and #5 … Continue reading 2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Yesterday was the baronial arts and sciences championship, which I entered on a lark. The only caveat to the competition is that I could not have entered a competition with it before. You may remember the carved Pelican medallion I made a few entries ago. After buying a jeweler's saw and blades, I cut the … Continue reading Barony of Forgotten Sea Arts and Sciences Championship
It's been a while. So much for keeping up with my New Year's plans. At any point, gratuitous project pic! Tagua nut is also known as vegetable ivory, and is carved using a lot of the same methods, and has the benefit of being vegan and sustainable. This piece isn't necessarily a period piece, but … Continue reading Ask Me Anything!
My house, lately, has been the medallion factory. Commissioned by my Pelican, I made these two pieces. I'll also be showing the bits that I'm not proud of (because it keeps me humble), so there's going to be things that just aren't pretty. Welcome to the suck parts of being an artist: project fail. Anyway. … Continue reading Medallions
I mentioned in Teaser! that I had a lot of secret projects. And most of them came to fruition yesterday. So, this post will be all about those secret projects. My house has been the Pelican medallion factory as of late. One of those was presented last week at Master Mathurin's ceremony. It's small, about … Continue reading Secret Project Roundup
