Heraldry

Heraldry is a escutcheon-generating web-app and twitter bot, developed on a whim after an intense bout of burning curiosity surrounding the medieval art of heraldry.

I spent quite some time researching the composition, history and idiosyncrasies of the artform, and later another legth of time with the art of blazonry.

I've learnt a great deal and come to a profound appreciation for the poetic terseness of a well-bazoned coat of arms.

Find below two real examples of the bot at work

Argent, in a pale purpure, three tulips slipped and leaved proper
Quarterly, I argent, four cherry blossom argent, II gules, a laughing crying emoji proper, III gules, IV argent
