Inspired by 13th century illuminated scripture, this notebook cover is embellished with scrolling vines, hand painted details, and a map of the four kingdoms that the owner travels within. Created for BaneIronclaw over on FA as a commission from TFF2020, they wanted a physical piece that one of their D&D characters, Ash Lightbrush would carry on their adventures, detailing the flora, fauna, and sights that they find along the way.
For this piece, I had to do a bit of delving into the styles and techniques that scribes used for their designs and lettering....let me tell ya, these people were insanely talented to do what they did way back then. Having to figure out by eye how they drew out letters was tough! Serious props to them, it really gives one much more respect for their art.
