Illumination - Algiz Rune by EjLizardbreath Illumination - Algiz Rune by EjLizardbreath
Done in the Celtic/English illuminated manuscript style, with some modern twists. For instance, gel pens. Anyway.

"Algiz" is the Futhark rune that traditionally means "the elk", and is a rune used for protection and strength, particularly strength of spirit.

Thus, this is the first page of a journal I plan to make in an entirely illuminated style. Imma get REALLY good at Celtic knots and zoomorphic interlacing by the end of it. Woohoo.
