The Last Unicorn (11x14)

This is a 14x11, also marked down as 11x14, design influenced by The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. The quote with in the poster is derived straight out of the IDW comic The Last Unicorn. The Comic adaptation is by Peter B. Gillis and art by Renae De Liz. Please note that DragonroseWorks does not claim any rights to the quote, but only the art work on the poster.

The Unicorn is the main character with in the story. She sets off on a quest to find out why she is the last unicorn on earth. She comes across two traveling companions, Molly Grue and Schemdrick the Magician. The quote, "The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. She was very old, though she did not know it, and she was no longer the careless color of sea foam, but rather the color of snow falling on a moonlit night. But her eyes were still clear and unwearied, and she still moved like a shadow on the sea. Unicorns are immortal, and it is their nature to live alone in one place-usually a forest with a clear pool that will tell them that they are the most beautiful creatures in all the world-and magic, too. They are a little vain, because all of that is true. She wandered all day among the great beech trees, keeping watch over the animals that lived in the ground and under bushes-in nests and caves, earths and treetops. They hunted and loved and had children and died, and as the unicorn did none of these things, she never grew tired of watching them." is a powerful quote that sets the story at the very beginning. It captures the Unicorn's nature and beauty, but also captures her as a character with a set personality of innocence and purity. While the quote is a mouthful, it also shows that the unicorn is comfortable with in her home and even enjoys her duty to protecting the forest. She is a blanket of security as well as the forest is for her.
