Theon at Moat Cailin: the Calendar

The official 2013 SONG OF ICE AND FIRE calendar is on sale at your favorite bookstore, br it brick & mortar or internet (if it's not, time to find a new favorite bookstore). Some gorgeous artwork by Marc Simonetti this year.

And courtesy of Marc, and Random House, we also have a YouTube video about the "making of" said calendar, so you can see how all this comes together.

Enjoy.

Spoiler!
So Theon's not dead. No book has shown him at Moat cailin and i'm on aFfC.

Not cool George. I forgive you though!

Re: Spoiler!
Well, in fact, you can tell that in the book, it is never said that theon is dead. It's something that happened to me, first i think he was, but then i've realized he could be alive (in some dark place in some ominous castle in the north)

Hi :)

Nice.
That is really cool. I LOVE the new calendar. It's really ominous and beautiful. Very unique. This month I have the Oberyn and The Mountain on my wall.

The imagery sends shivers down my spine.

Spoilers.
This part of Dance with Dragons was one of those small victories for Theon, but where he had no joy in conquering at all.
Somehow, even though I love his arc and character, I want Stannis to decapitate him. Not because I hate him, but because he's been through enough and continuing to live would only bring more pain and suffering to him. Then again, that same pain and suffering makes his chapters such a great read. That, and all that based Manderly.

Also, George, was there a Russian inspiration for the coming battle near Winterfell?

That was amazing!
That was truly amazing. The detail is incredible. I know a little bit about using PhotoShop an Illustrator, but I do not know what program this could be. I am in awe of the skill of this artist.

I think it is most likely Corel Painter 12. Its preferred by serious digital artists once they make the jump to a Wacom Cintiq.

Art inspiring art
Looking forward to picking it up and scanning right to May. A special month because my birthday falls on it, and the new Duncan and Egg story will be released. Which will make May everyone's special month.

I would love to see a video like that of you writing a chapter of Winds of winter. Adding bits, deleting things...
The calendar looks like a must have.

A beautiful piece of art. I'm pretty sure I could watch speed paintings all day.

Beautiful!
I bought this calendar as soon as it became available and it is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't figure out what this cover image was though, so now I know its Theon at Moat Cailin. I love all of the images, particularly the one of Dany in the pit in Mereen with her Drogon and Arya in the House of Black and White cellar with the faces. If anyone is a serious aSoIaF fan, they've gotta get this calendar.

Does Lady Stoneheart count? ;) She is featured very prominently in one of the pictures! Love this calendar... got it a few weeks ago! (Though there are some little details inconsistent with book descriptions that irk me a little... like Brienne looking much too small/feminine haha) But still, it's so so gorgeous and I can't wait to be able to use it next year!
