Drawing based on this WWI Belgian Red Cross poster by Charles Bochel.  47ness sent me this picture several months ago and I really did want to draw something like it...so I finally got to it!

To be colored~

Yeah, it's hard not to want to make the (obvious) connection. When things calm down, Jane of course probably just giggles in embarrassment at this kind of analogy. ¦^D

I've seen various posters on this kind of theme, but this particular one really had a look I like!  And Jane and Horatio felt like a good/natural fit for it.  I was kind of laughing to myself as I drew it: "Oh, this sounds kind of like Horatio's fantasy, ha ha"
Oh, definitely!  I'm sure she does.

I suppose it's made slightly awkward since it's Belgian propaganda (of the more benign kind) plus  Jane fits the "ethnic profile" of the intended audience, but nonetheless serves on the side of the Dunns. ^^; H.C. doesn't mind of course. Mini pixel bunny head - Free to use 

It'd be funny if they happened on a poster that looked like the original plastered on some local village's wall...!

Well, it doesn't feel awkward to me :) - I feel like it adds more complexity to mix inspiration between the various real world sources, since the peoples/nations/etc in my stories aren't meant to be a total one-for-one match with real peoples/nations/etc.  That bordering region of Dunnland-L'Adienne where Jane is from and Belk-Arras is located is certainly the most Belgium-like part of the continent in my mind.

That would be so interesting/amusing/I never thought of that!!  I suppose I've put more of the propaganda talk on the Maurice & Persy side of the story thus far...

True~ truly...


That's what I'm here for, Suzume!! [ YURI ON ICE ] :Viktor Nikiforov 3: :D
Ahh, well that makes sense- there would be a lot of drumbeat on the homefront too.

::finally getting some free time to read through the last chapter you gave me, by the way::

Ha ha ha ha ha, oh my gosh with that Viktor icon at that end of that I'm kind of dying here XD;  In a good way.
There are just so many more places/media for spreading propaganda in the cities than at the front...maybe.

Oh, all right~

Ohyes. There's a LOT of Viktor icons floating around. XD;
Yeah- though L'Adienne being overrun just means it's possible to run into messages from 'the other side', maybe.

[ YURI ON ICE ] Poke. :XD:
