Good god is Churchill typically represented as a warthog dragon cthulu? I'm glad he has a label. But seriously this is ridiculously amazing

This is incredible! Did you base this off of an original poster or was this your own interpretation of a propaganda poster?

It's definitely influenced a lot by the well known "Destroy this Mad Brute" poster.

i love propaganda, the imagination and intelligence that goes into them and the fact that it can indoctrinate an entire nation (especially the nazi propaganda)

I'm kind of dissapointed that you didn't use Fraktur, given that it was the main typefaced used during the Kaiserreich. But then again, Antiqua is a lot more legible than Fraktur.

Yeah, I explored Fraktur, and other similar period typefaces, but went for a (hopefully more immersive) mix of readability and verisimilitude. It's a mix of languages as well if you notice (all the place names are in English.)

Objectively speaking, it's good propaganda--it portrays the Darwinists as horrible, scary monsters and makes it appear as though Churchill LIKES monsters.

I loved these books. They were awesome; I only regret that I do not speak German.
