SCA Kingdom Device Artwork

Artwork of the SCA Kingdom Devices in vector formats for printing & web.

Back in July of 2004 a friend of mine, one of the loveliest ladies in the SCA Lady Duva of Trimaris, was in need of help with the Pennsic Gift Baskets from the Kingdom of Trimaris to the other Kingdoms many good gentles made great efforts to create gifts for the other Kingdom Crowns and they wanted to place these gifts in a canvas bag with the kingdom device on each bag. Graphics being my profession I knew I could create what they needed fairly quickly and happened to have a bunch of ink jet iron on sheets from another project. All were created with Adobe Illustrator 10 and InkScape for some of the tracing.

I have made available for download an original Adobe Illustrator Native (.ai) file an Encapsulated Postscript (.eps) file with a windows preview and a Scalable Vector Graphic (.svg) file, an open format with several free open source applications available. I searched for references and drew the vectors mostly by hand occasionally I used inkscape to assist with tracing but I rarely like what tracing does and invariably modify it but it does help when you have a deadline. The actual art I used for my reference I could not say who did it but I did locate one kingdom device already vectorized. For the east kingdom vector artwork I had previously posted a link to the graphics on their web site but they have changed the site and it is no longer available while i have the art i will not post it here without the artists permission. At some later date in keeping with my Icon Project elsewhere on this site i will create icons for all of these. You will find some of the Kingdom Icons completed.

Wine Bottle for SketchUp

Posted on February 27th, 2010 by Michael

My wine bottles for SketchUp. I have been working on display design a lot, using Google SketchUp, and I found the wine bottles in the Google 3d Warehouse not meeting my needs so I made this one. I wrap my client's bottle image around it and place as a component. It works form me and I wanted to share with the SketchUp community.

Shaston PS Font

I created this printer version of the bitmap font Shaston from Matt Chisholm which is based on the Apple IIgs font of the same name. In one of the news groups

I periodically read the Usenet group and an Alex Lee had a query about a particular font based on an Apple IIgs font. When I have an opportunity I try to give help in the groups so i looked for the font in question and found only a bitmap version so I fired up an old font program and decided to make the Font. This was a fierce attempt to procrastinate about some other project I was working on but at least it was constructive.

This was hand drawn using Matt’s bitmap font as the basis all the characters in the bitmap are present in this printer version. If there are any problem characters or suggestions feel free to contact me.

I created this with my older version of Fontographer and used FontForge to open and export the font to the OpenType version.

I make no guarantees as to it’s stability and effect on your computer. Use at your own risk.

Below you will find the Mac TrueType version, the Windows TrueType version and the cross platform OpenType version. The Mac version is archived in a disk image to retain the resource fork.
