Interesting project designed by lovelessdevotions and Aesara-Dayne where you can read about the ASOIAF fan and official art and the fans and artists who create it. All interested are very welcome to read, but be wary of spoilers for G.R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" and HBO's "Game of Thrones".

Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak IIn this first edition, we talk with Mathia Arkoniel, a veteran illustrator that is amongst the first fan artists to grace the ASOIAF fandom back in the days when the pool was smaller and the variety in styles and interpretations more reduced. She is an artist whose paintings capture the dynamic and sensual world that George R. R. Martin has crafted in his fantasy series. Her pieces are distinguished by a bold use of colour and polished rendering, and each one reveals an expressive emotional quality that highlights not only Mathia’s talent but a perceptive grasp of the source material, which we hope will be enlightening for artists and readers alike.

Welcome to the first edition of Illustrating Westeros, Mathia. To begin, tell
Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak IIRichly detailed and darkly evocative, Bubug's ASOIAF artworks are not easily forgettable. Perhaps it is because of the humour and irony that permeates her pieces, easily making you laugh as they simultaneously captivate. Or the answer may lie in the many symbolic details that are weaved through the paintings: challenging our familiarity with these characters whilst deepening our appreciation. Whatever the reason, it is little wonder that Bubug's style and insight are cherished by so many in the fandom.

Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak IIIEva Maria Toker's passionate approach to the world of Westeros can readily be appreciated on first viewing of her paintings. In pieces full of detail and depth, she reveals the poignancy and bittersweet quality that have attracted so many to this series and its characters. Eva invites us to wander into these settings and to share the emotions, the mystery, and the drama with its inhabitants. 

Welcome to a new edition of Illustrating Westeros, Eva Maria. To begin, tell us how you became an artist, and the influences that have shaped your style.

Thank you so much for the chance to participate in Illustrating Westeros!
Illustrating Westeros: TWOIAF Special EditionIn this first Special Edition of Illustrating Westeros, we are delighted to feature an exclusive interview with Elio Garcia Jr. and Linda Antonsson, the co-authors, along with George R.R. Martin, of the recently published The World of Ice and Fire. The interview offers a detailed and engaging perspective on the artistic development of TWOIAF and the remarkable artists whose paintings so enriched our appreciation of the dynamic milieu of historical Westeros. If you've found yourself returning time and again to gaze at the fascinating landscapes and characters illustrated within the book, wondering about Martin's specific involvement in certain areas, and are looking forward even more anxiously to the release of his next book, The Winds of Winter, this interview is a must read.

Welcome to the special edition of Illustrating Westeros, Elio and Linda. Fans agree
