This is a thank-you card that I made to give to my supervisor upon the (hopefully) successful defense of my Ph.D., since he's been a tremendous supervisor these last four years. This was my third attempt at penwork initials; the first was a practice "T" I did before Raglan, the second was the "T" I do for Alaric's ID company of merit in arts & sciences scroll, which was done by memory of the one I'd done for practice, and then I did this one. So the "T" was copied from an actual exemplar (though different from the one I'd used for the other two), but the "Y" was completely made up. You just don't find that many capital "Y"s in medieval manuscripts.
