This scroll is mainly based off the Hours of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy (c. 1454-55). The Hours contain grisaille miniatures that fill about half of each page, underneath which the customary texts for a book of hours are written in bastarda, following a large puzzlework illuminated letter.

The miniature I chose to use for the scroll is based off of a full-page color miniature from the Hours of Mary of Burgundy (c. 1477), in which a lady is sitting at an open window looking into the interior of a gothic church. Instead of depicting the church, I used a landscape from the background of the Hours of the Cross in the Très Riches Heures of John, Duke of Berry (completed c. 1485- 90).

I used ground pigments bound with glair on vellum - my first time with all period materials! WOO.

Full doumentation is in the journal entries. ^_^

Completed in January 2011.

He was the first one I painted, and I think he's still my favorite.

Based on a "Biblia pauperum" - Bible of the poor - from the northern Netherlands c. 1405. King's MS 5, f.20, to be specific.

This is made for a superspecialawesome member of my SCA household, Wenllyan. She got her AoA several years ago, but she only ever got a weird promissory sort of situation going on. I hadn't gotten a chance to make her a scroll yet, so I offered to do this one.

The first panel represents her starting off in the SCA in the Barony of Black Diamond, when she was a college student at VT (second tiny Burruss Hall castle I have painted... hmmm trend). The second is of her serving by sewing Viking apron dresses for several members of the barony. It also has a banner on the wall behind her depicting the badges of the offices she has held within the barony. The third panel shows her waterbearing, which she often does at events. The heavy fighter is supposed to be her husband, Philp, and behind them is the "Tudor trailer" that they camp in.

The four folks around the scrolly bits in the middle are the other four "grown up" members of our household. Aneira and Grettir- the heads of the household - are up top, and Cerball and Talia on the bottom. None of them look like who they are. :(

Yay colorful calligraphy! Yay picture book! Boo tiny faces that don't look like the people they are supposed to be portraits of!

Walnut Ink, Watercolor, Copper Leaf

A commissioned Illuminated Manuscript for a client featuring a poem he wrote for his wife. I've been working on this for about a month. I attempted to incorporate traditional medieval symbolism that pertained to the subject matter of the poem, some of these symbols are:

Owl-revelation/wisdom from the Holy Spirit
Cardinal- blood of Christ
Ivy- Eternal Life
Red and Pink Carnations- Married Love
Lilies- Purity of heart
Bees- Eloquence
Pomegranates- Unity
Ladybugs- Trust
Oak Leaves- Endurance/Strength of Faith

Colors:
Orange- Courage
Brown- Humility
Green- Abundance

Because of its size, it has been difficult for me to get a good photo. I will also upload some closeups of the details.

Based on Vitae virorum illustrium, by Plutarchus;
printed in Venice by Nicolaus Jenson & illuminated by Girolamo da Cremona c. 1478.

Done on bristol with watercolors.

(I later filled in the four little round frames in the illuminated letter and the one on the middle right side.... with kiwi birds and a mushroom.)

(Note the cthulhu in the top right corner)
