Now that it is given I can post pictures of the latest scroll I did for the SCA. A long time friend and founding Baron of my home group was awarded his Pelican. For those who do not know what a Pelican is in the SCA, You know what a Knight is ,well a Pelican is a Knight for service instead of fighting. It is a Peerage, one of 4 Great Awards that are SCA wide and are the best you can get. Here is his scroll, I did the illumination (the art) and a friends Baroness Daniela did the Calligraphy, it is in German because that is Heinrich's persona. This is Acrylic, Egg Tempera and Micron pen on Parchment (animal skin). Picture 21.

OK only part horse, Finally get another one done. I have tried a few times to do a Japanese Centaur and never have gotten it to a point I was happy with. This one I think I like. There is a lot of very subtle shades in this that the scan did not capture, but it is what it is as they say. "Samurai Centaur", 6 x 14, Acryic, Watercolor colored pencil, ProWhite and Micron pen on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 16.
