Other honorary addresses include scrolls for Chancellor Helmut Kohl and for the Queen of Denmark when they were given Honorary Freedom of the City of London, and Aldermasonic scrolls for the Lord Mayor of London, Exeter City Council, City of Plymouth, and several Worshipful Companies within the City of London.
Other clients include Glastonbury Abbey and Neil has also been the “hand extra” seen writing the works of Samuel T. Coleridge in the film Pandemonium, released in 2001. He was responsible for all of the hand-written work, which was an essential element throughout the film.
Neil helped produce many of the line drawings entered into Burkes Peerage, and continues to to be involved with Burkes Peerage.
He attended the 2006 International Heraldic Congress at St. Andrews, and Neil has been very busy producing examples of Arms, and Honorary Scrolls for companies such as Fattorini Ltd.
His largest commission to date is the production of an Italian Nobility Genealogy. Neil worked on a vast Heraldic Tree consisting of over 100 coats of arms, a medieval scene and gilded acorns and leaves throughout. The design was hand drawn and produced on four pages of vellum stretched over a board 5ft x 4ft. It was a process that took over 2000 hrs and over a period of 5 years.
Recent commissions have included a range of six Royal Scrolls each presented by individual members of the Royal Household. These were all on vellum and incorporated a very detailed example of the Royal Arms.
More recently Neil has had the opportunity to create artwork to commemorate the Prince of Wales 65th Birthday and this was displayed on the most beautiful of porcelain and sold through Highgrove.
Neil has also completed a commission to produce a 3 meter Roll of Arms which required five vellum skins.
In more recent months he has been working on a variety of heraldic art, along side designing coins for the Westminster Collection and has been commissioned to design a coin for the 800th celebration of Magna Carta and most recently six new coins to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday.
Neil is also embarking on a vast reproduction project of the Winchester Bible in which all illuminations will be hand painted and gilded for print.
