Picacio Does Melisandre

John Picacio has posted another sneak peek from his 2012 Ice & Fire calendar. This time it's a detail of the red woman, Melisandre of Asshai.

http://picacio.blogspot.com/2011/06/2012-asoiaf-calendar-melisandre-preview.html

The calendar will debut at the San Diego Comicon. John and I will both be on hand, signing copies. See you there!!!

She reminds me of Pat Benetar, except with red eyes and red hair! LOL

Picacio Does Melisandre
Thx, Spitphyre!

Alex & Andrea -- Funny comments. :) Lucy Lawless would be an interesting choice in the HBO show. But no, actually when I was doing this Melisandre art, she never entered my mind. Ditto PBenatar. :) The art I did for the calendar is based on the way I saw the characters while immersed in the ASoIaF books. So my Melisandre art is definitely based on that, and when I was drawing her, she was based on personal memories and imaginings, referenced from two ex-girlfriends and my wife. A dangerous combination, now that I think of it.... :) LOL

I'm very much looking forward to getting our copy of the calendar. We have ASOIAF art and Picacio art in the apartment already, so this will bridge the two collections nicely.

Wow I think I liked the stuff he did for Del Rey's Elric well enough but the stuff for this calendar blows me away. Great work.

Heart-Shaped Face
I totally see the book's description in her face. That's one thing I'm loving about this calendar so far; it's closer to the books than any TV show could ever be. The wife and I can't wait to get ours, though unfortunately not at any events with signatures.

Nice! Though when I first glanced at the post title I thought it said 'Picasso Does Melisandre' :P

will you be signing books as well at comic con? i know there's a san diego booksigning, but they are selling tickets in person only and i'm sure they'll be sold out by the time i'm in san diego.

I will be signing a lot at Comicon. Almost every day, in fact, at many different venues, for several different publishers.

But please note: I will be signing specific things at specific times. When I sign at Avatar, I will be signing only the FEVRE DREAM graphic novel. When I sign at IDW, I will be signing only DOORWAYS. At Tor, only Wild Cards books.

Those are booth signings. In the general signings, the ones in the con's official autograph areas, I will be signing the Ice & Fire books (mostly) and everything else.

If we have long lines, as I expect, I will ONLY be signing. That is to say, I will not be doing inscriptions or personalizations. When there's a lot of people waiting for my illegible scrawl, and a limited amount of time, it's more equitable to sign five hundred books than to sign and inscribe two hundred.

Uhm.. Isn't she supposed to have bright red eyes, not carmine-brown?
