This was my second commission for a personal design of Armorial Bearings from start to finish, featured here with Mr Cole Gallup’s kind permission.
The Shield: "Azure a Celtic Cross Vert/Sable fimbriated Or on a mound Vert between a Lion and Coyote both dormant Or all below seven stars the central having 10 points in an arch.
The Crest: "Within a Wreath of the colours a Chalice Or"
Mantling: " Vert doubled Or"
Motto: "Protege Mites : Puni Impios - Protect the weak : Punish the wicked"
I am happy to take on personal commissions for the design and/or traditional and/or digital paintings of new or existing Armorial Bearings. Please note me for further details.
However, please note that I will not produce artwork based on 'Bucketshop heraldry', that is heraldry based entirely on your surname bought online from certain 'Family Heraldry' companies . Even though this is a perfectly legitimate business, it deals in Arms granted to families whose male lines have since died out; morally speaking it is a form of theft that no reputable heraldic artist will touch!
