Master Azir felt confident that it would mean the most coming from me, and insisted that I be the one to do the scroll despite the time frame problems. I agreed to do a promissory note, and then to do a fully illuminated piece later.
Due to the rush I was in, I'm sad to say this is far from my best calligraphy. It's done on a half sheet of pergamenata with Higgins Eternal ink. Also, even though I treated the page with pounce prior to inking, there were quite a few places the ink refused to lay down. I'm going to have to be more cautious about laying my arm on the page when wearing short sleeves. I was wearing gloves, but forgot to put down a paper towel like I usually do.
I'm excited about doing her full manuscript page as she is as crazy about dragonflies as I am, so I can litter the piece with bugs. This probably means I'll do a Flemish style page... We shall see!
Would you be interested in following said scroll in a project diary of sorts, seeing progress shots and the like?
