In four days short a fortnight be the feast of St. Crispin. That it lands in the month of macabre is rightly so, for once a grave horror befell la francophonie. To be tasset deep in muck and scum whilst a hail of English arrows blot out the sun, those poor armored chevaliers, more trapped than guarded, suffered woe and vicious routing by a meager band of brothers. For it if was not for the bloody slaying of these twins in Gaul, a feast there would be not, and if not for a bard, this condemned holiday would long ago have faded. That the bloody battle of Agincourt landed on this day for slain martyrs keeps both memories steadfast.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Agincourt.

All art work is due on Thursday, 10.23.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 10.24.14
