The Grand Symbol of the Largocracy

Winter 33rd, 573

Though the Largocracy is now officially the most powerful political party in Puddleby, it is lacking sorely in one regard - flashy emblems. To try and remedy this dire situation, I recently asked a few artist friends of mine to design a Largocratic coat of arms. One that featured, ideally, two crossed swords beneath a an illustration of my roaring head.

My good and talented friend Kisa (who has a marked history of painting wonderful images that glorify the Largocratic way) was kind enough to provide the sketch that you see here.

Though not exactly what I had in mind, this image will officially represent the Largocracy until an emblem is created that does not feature stabbing me in the face as a major point of design.

In other art related news, I have been informed that the portrait that Hoggle painted to commemorate my election is not, as I had previously noted, inaccurate in its coloring. Instead, the white hair in the illustration is a powdered wig. Though I do not own such a wig, I would almost certainly wear it if I did. Perhaps I will look into purchasing one. Many kudos to Hoggle for his excellent speculative work.
