Kardak Perks!


As some of you already know. I am supporting a documentary on Conlanging, made by producer Britton Watkins. Here is a link to the indiegogo campaign . I was asked to contribute a piece to the campaign to be offered as a perk. I, honestly, had nothing. I had just finished a 12 hour shift at work and was dozing off at red lights when I got the message. I got a huge rush of creative energy, stopped at the cornerstone for a large can of Monster Energy, then raided the hobby lobby like a crackhead looking for a fix. Four days later and right on time for deadline, I sent photos of this scroll, which I call the affirmation scroll.

scroll

I felt lined a beautiful dark brown sheet of leather, sewed the ends with a wax-coated sinew chord, died and tipped the hanger rods, and then created the scroll which is hand-drawn, hand-painted with acrylic paints, and gilded to add that special glow. The kardak script reads ” siikar odrindire uve gossen dit vajh dwadiras” or “remember to breathe and know this too shall pass.” I’m quite happy with the result. I hope it brings in a boatload of cash for the film. Doanaj, esh sithir,ii thalovn…-Kiiron

English:

hello family(non blood) how are you? Today is a beautiful day, neither hot nor cold. Today I am resting and making art. Yesterday…yesterday was extensive. I worked for 14 hours. I was extremely, extremely exhausted. Today, I’m not working. It’s very good to live and to breathe. Oh! Passing thought, to you, I need to say, I am grateful for you all and for your love of my art and language. Family, it’s time for me to go. Good day. Until we meet again. I love you all.
