The First Diurnalis Pages

Started a new project vaguely inspired by reading about the lives of medieval monks, illuminated manuscripts and the Voynich manuscript. I’m fascinated by the mystery of the undeciphered writing system of the Voynich manuscript, so I created my own writing system. Not quite sure where I’m going with this, but I’m enjoying it so far.

I named the project “Diurnalis”, which is Latin for “daily”, or something happening every day. I choose a Latin name because of the connection to medieval manuscripts, and the word daily because lately I’ve been doing one of these illustrations every day.
