Ladies of the Knight is a collection of works by illustrator @fionacreates featuring the valiant and noble beknighted ladies of a quasi historical League of Knights.

While the men of the league are trying to prove their toughness and valour in Jousting and other Knightly sports, the Ladies… well they’re trying to do the same thing really. A knight is a knight!

The illustrations, sketches and short comics will mostly follow the Knight Serafina, her overenthusiastic squire, Georgiana, and her patroness and long term partner, the Lady Minerva.

The Lady Minerva, patroness and long term partner of Serafina.

Lady Minerva is a strong willed businesswoman who runs her own import/export business raking in the gold. She’s shrewd and clever and if she wants something she makes it happen. 20 years ago she saw a gangly teenage Serafina when passing the training grounds and decided to follow her career, it wasn’t a pining crush she swears. She later became Serafina’s patron and Serafina has proudly displayed Minerva’s owl crest ever since. It’s good PR. Or so she tells her accounting department.

I’m going to an event this week (a bit last minute) where I needed business cards, but the ones I ordered with all my new work on them won’t arrive until after the event. The local print shops failed me so I had to figure something out with my inkjet. So after a little messing about and taping back together to figure out the perfect window size this is the new limited edition design.. WOO!

Foldy design with a little window, so that the information and picture can be printed easily on the same side of the paper, I’ll then hand write my initials “FM” on the front by the little triangle window. Woo go me. I now think these are better than the boring old regular ones I have on order…

Just to buy some decent paper tomorrow and then it’s cut out hell til I get maybe 20-30 or these babies.. XD

The best design decisions come from working with restrictions, not open doors. No matter what little things you have access to, if you really want to make something, you can make it work.
