Keep Britannia Clean - Send the Gargoyles Back! by Vlarg Keep Britannia Clean - Send the Gargoyles Back! by Vlarg
This is from scrolls found in Ultima VII: The Black Gate. I've wanted to make this poster for pretty much a decade now. The idea first occurred to my in printmaking when I was at Ball State. I wanted to hang these all over campus. Nearly a decade later, I finally made the damn thing.

The subtext was Richard Garriott addressing racism in the world that he created, Britannia. I always thought the race issue in Ultima VII was very powerful.

Original gargoyle artwork by Denis Loubet from the Ultima IX instruction manual. I modified it a bit to make them look more evil.

The font is Free Press. Parchment paper is here: [link]

Cool! I've always been a fan of ~dloubet — and this is reminiscent of the posters on the loading screens in the recent Fable games.

doublepost!
lol, this is a good ref x3 I still have the collection of games xD The gargoyles have yet to have a story of their own. Origin and Richard Garriot could have made a back story for their race or given them their own game I think with the time they had before the EMPIRE OF EA took over.
