A quick note on shipping: Please add $5 to all orders placed outside of the United States. Thank you.
As a lover of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, I have spent the last 10 years experiencing and envisioning the rich world he has crafted. As a Graphic Designer I am constantly inspired by the story and depth of these novels.
Taking my love for these books (and recent HBO television series), I set out to harness this inspiration and produce artwork in my preferred medium. My goal was to produce tasteful and minimalistic pieces that conveyed the emotions of their respective settings without sacrificing the spirit of the series. I also wanted to create something I could display in the house without my wife hiding it every time friends came over (she’s not too in to fantasy art).
And I’d like to share these with you – the Kickstarter community. When you pledge, you’ll be part of the premiere printing of these digital paintings. To make these unique originals, each piece will be numbered and hand signed.
I’ve set the project goal to meet minimum printing costs for a 500 print run, and cover continental US shipping costs. The prints are high quality, ready for framing, hanging, and displaying your Ice and Fire love.
So, what are you getting? I’ve created four digital paintings, each featuring a different castle: Stoic Winterfell, majestic King’s Landing, the vertigo-inducing Eyrie, and one in-progress piece. The last one is a surprise, but it will be a piece that burns against the cold*.
If funding is successful, all prints will be mailed within one week of the project closing. All artwork should be received late November, and well before the December holidays.
You can find out more about the castles and me at my blog http://breakingframe.blogspot.com/. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to working with the community to bring this artistic endeavor to life!
*Cheesier Hint: You'll be taken ablack when you see it.
