Halloween postage stamp

Happy Halloween!  Creepy art on this little Hungarian stamp, eh?

Actually, it's not Halloween-themed at all, but I really like this stamp. The word in gray at the top, környezetvédelem, means "Environment".

Medieval lure and illuminated manuscript art

Have you noticed the interest in the Medieval Period?  Everything from knights to Tudors to queens and kings, even mystical wizardry and old maps.  Below is my attempt at an illuminated manuscript illumination.  I added some gold gilding, but it doesn't show in the scan.  The Getty Center in west Los Angeles has a running exhibit of manuscript pages, changing the manuscripts and pages displayed every three months or so.  Just don't think about taking a photograph -- I made that mistake and  the guard wasn't just peeved, he acted personally insulted!  What did I know?
