Poster Sketch: Angels, Demons and Deities

No matter how long or how fiercely a civilization worships their deities, once that culture has been forgotten, the gods and goddesses enter the realm of mythology. When Jupiter and the rest of the Roman pantheon was replaced by Christianity, it was the start of a great many changes to come. Although some of the traditions that would follow were often influenced by local legend, the far reaching influence of the Roman Empire would eventually bring an end to the pagan way of life.

While the age of technology has changed many things, art continues to be largely influenced by faith, new and old. This week’s Poster Sketch is dedicated to some of the more magical and legendary themes of earlier times, as well as the pagan themes that still thrive beneath the surface.
