Niffler Bestiary Page
Made because I have weird brainspace, this is inspired by medieval bestiaries. It's ink, gouache, and FineTec/Coliro gold on a 5"x7" pergamenata (vegetable vellum).
Submitted for an SCA publication, this is gouache and watercolour on Bristol board.  I had this 14th century falconer in my head, and I'm pleased as punch she ended up the way I saw her.  The peregrine is bird known within Europe within this time period, and I took a bit of liberties on the feathers in her bycocket hat (turns out the Lady Amherst's pheasant wasn't known in Europe until the 1800s - oops).

9"x12" Bristol
W&N, Holbein, and Royal Talens gouache
Gansai Tambi and Daniel Smith Watercolour
FineTec/Coliro gold palette
  • Listening to: Nickel Creek
  • Eating: breakfast
It's been a big year of travel.

On a whim, I was asked if I wanted to go visit the Middle East.

I got it cleared through work, and aside from travel woes (which may be a separate entry.  Haven't decided), it was a decent trip.  I got to see Himself and his mother.

I also got some pretty sweet photos, which have now been uploaded and are now prints.  I also got to go to the I. M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art, and I'm inspired to create some SCA-period pieces inspired by the pieces I saw.

What's new in your world?
