Calligraphy Piece #3: BoS Blessing (giveaway!)

Postby Xiao Rong » Tue Apr 01, 2014 4:42 pm

Hey everyone,

This is another piece I've done recently that I'm quite proud of. It's a Book of Shadows blessing and I'd love to give it away to find it a nice witchy home!

Image

9" x 6", multimedia paper, using Mitchell dip pen & Higgins Eternal Ink, in Batarde script. This is my first attempt at a cadel capital (the fancy letter H).

I believe the poem was originally written by Silver Ravenwolf, although sources vary online. I also edited a few of the lines because the original had some weird grammatical quirks that I didn't care for.

* * * * *

Do you want this piece for free? I love doing the calligraphy, and I thought it'd be fun to give this away to someone on EUTM. I would be honored for someone to have this in their Book of Shadows!

If you are interested in this piece, post a number between 1 and 100. I'll pick the winning number, let's say, next Tuesday, April 8. If you win, PM me your address and I will mail it to you!

OH - and if you have suggestions or requests for my next calligraphy piece, let me know!


Note on reading the script: I used a lot of long S's (look like a lowercase F without the crossbar) and rotunda R's (lowercase R's that look like the numeral 2), if that helps explain why some of the words look spelled wrong!

And the winning number is ... 48! Alura, you get the BoS Blessing : ) PM me your mailing address; I'll try to send it by the weekend so I think you can expect it next week.

As for everyone else, stay tuned for more giveaways ... I just finished up a copy of the Norwegian Rune Poem, which I'll be uploading soon!

Hmm, I hadn't thought of doing commissions before. I wouldn't mind doing more smaller works (like a half page or 1 page), although I wouldn't be able to do much more calligraphy until at least next week. Did you have something in mind?

Xiao, I just want to metion how beautiful your work is.

I love calligraphy and very interested in the art of penmanship. I have taken some classes and did it as a hobby for sometime until life got busy and I have no time to spare.
