How are you?
I'm writing this new journal to let you know about a very interesting and beautiful project that Aesara-Dayne and lovelessdevotions are working on!
The project consists of interviewing the outstanding ASOIAF/GOT fan artists and some official artists!
The idea was inspired by a similar project dedicated to Tolkien's fan artworks, but this time they wanted to give us, ASOIAF/GOT fans, the possibility to show our art and appreciation for Martin's world.
They already have 4 more interviews in the works to be posted soon, while the first one features the amazing Mathia Arkoniel, and you can find it here: fav.me/d82va1f
The project is aimed to promote art appreciation and encourage artists as well as satisfy fans' thirst for knowledge about their favorite fan artists, so... what are you waiting for? Check their page and feel free to share you opinion on which artists should be featured, or get to know better your favorite artists!! Don't miss this chance to discover new amazing talents you'd never heard of before and share your appreciation!
The project is going to feature big names, so all of you could appreciate the chance to hear from them, as some of them are official artists that did artworks for calendars and the books themselves!
You can find the first two interviews here!! Check them out and promote this great project!
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.
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.
Welcome to Illustrating Westeros, Bubug. To begin, tell us how you
Thanks and have a lovely say!
(and don't forget... Winter is Coming! ;D)
