Madrone Sargeantcy Scroll

A scroll conveying Sargeantcy status from fall 2014.   Ink and gouache on Bristol.  Based on motifs from the scribal modelbook of Gregorius Bock, ca 1510-1517, Swabia, Germany. Hand is gothic textura.

The tree. I extended it to fit the design. 

The main inspiration for the B. 

An example of the fine lines in red. 

 The words on the small scrolls are chivalrous virtues, and the shield is the heraldry of the granting Barony.
