Thank you ladies for the awesome shout-out about my booth! I still talk about you guys! Now off to buy some of your t-shirts!
NYCC GoT/ASOIAF Goodies!
There were a lot of GoT/ASOIAF-related items at NYCC, so this is just a little post with some shout-outs to artists that we loved…and Dark Horse.
The cute Jon, Sansa (w/ Lady!), and Renly/Loras sketches were done by Michael “Loonduck” Duron (http://www.locoduck.com/). He has only seen through season 1, so we couldn’t go with one of our original commission ideas (…Ramsay…), but we love how the others turned out! Little factoid: Expert Frey had to search for a non-spoilery picture of Loras and Renly for Michael and ended up showing him a picture of Loras and Renly knit dolls.
The Jon and Arya is done by Steve Howard (http://kumajin1.deviantart.com/), a fan of the books and show. He was actually listening to the ADWD audio book while doing the sketch. Optimus Frey was on a mission to get a happy-ish Jon Snow after seeing the other Jon Snow art in Artist Alley (it was beautiful art, but so much sadness!). Steve was very accommodating, and, although, Optimus Frey didn’t mention Needle in her conversation with Steve, she is thrilled that the final sketch includes Needle (and Arya!) since it will be perfect next to her Needle replica.
The pins (including pins from the Red Wedding!!) and North Remembers bag/sticker were at the Westeros booth mentioned in our other posts. She also had beautiful jewelry and jewelry boxes. And she also appreciated our crazy outfits, so she gets extra points! Here is her Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Westeros.
The Ygritte print is by Corey Breen (http://coreybreenonlinestore.bigcartel.com/) and is a perfect complement to his Jon Snow print that some of us purchased last year (http://coreybreenonlinestore.bigcartel.com/product/game-of-thrones-jon-snow-ghost).
The weirwood snow globe and map marker set will be available from Dark Horse next April. We want them! But lower the prices by about 90% and include a Bolton marker in the map set…Dark Horse, there is still time!
