I just completed my 140th piece of illumination since I started the A&S50
challenge in March of 2011. I have not only learned how to do proper
illumination, but I started doing calligraphy and have done 21 pieces so
far. It was suggested to me, in 2011, that I could take on the Challenge and
do something that I was already good at: such as 50 batches of mead. Or 50
articles or research papers. But I chose to try something that I wasn't good
at: illumination. I started by doing random scroll blanks and handing them
off to my Baronial signet, then to Kingdom. Then to royal gift baskets.
Along the way, I picked up good pigment and paper and took many classes on
how to be better. I have now reached the point where when one of my scrolls
is held up in court, it gets an "ooooh" or an "aaaaah". I am continually
working towards making scrolls good enough that they will get a
"dammmnnnnnnn" in court.
