"I like cats; what can I say? This particular Siamese cat's head
had striking sapphire eyes, which I feel I captured pretty well in
the original scroll. This is a standard two-part composition, where
the layout is divided in half vertically. It didn't work too well here,
as there's nothing to pull the two isolated pictures on the right-hand
side together into a united whole. I had thought that using the colors
of the Arms in the diapering pattern behind the capital letter would do
it, but the blocks of color are far too small. A purple letter and a
barry-wavy pattern in red and yellow behind it would have worked better.
Also, making the Arms larger and using thicker mantling to help fill in
the white space would have helped. Wendolyn's nickname is 'Giggles' and
when the heralds told her about a certain town in England, she was tempted
to change her name to Susan of Giggleswicke, hence the motto." -- Tatiana
