Noa Liberman-Plashkes is an Israeli-based illustrator/web designer currently re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire (aka, the Game of Thrones books). And while that's a feat in itself, what's even cooler is that she's also ILLUSTRATING each chapter as she goes!
And the artwork is a really great trip down memory lane for fans of both the show and books:
A Game of Thrones — "Bran II"
A Game of Thrones — "Jon III"
A Game of Thrones — "Sansa II"
"The illustrations shouldn’t take longer than what I took to read the chapters — so every one took around 15–20 minutes," she said.
A Game of Thrones — "Daenerys V"
A Game of Thrones — "Bran VI"
A Game Of Thrones — "Daenerys X"
And there's a cool detail about the color palettes in each drawing, too. Noa explained:
"You might notice that every house gets a color palette, as the books are based on point of views. All the Starks — Sansa, Bran, Arya, Ned, Catelyn — are gray-blue like their northern, Stark demeanor. Daenerys got a yellow palette based on the Targaryen colors and on the eastern exotic cityscapes. Jon got a gray palette with red highlights because it looks great against the Night's Watch uniform and the snowy landscapes (they’re my favorite to draw because I just love adding snow textures). The Greyjoys got seafoam green, Lannisters got red, and so on."
A Clash of Kings — "Arya II"
A Clash of Kings — "Tyrion V"
A Clash of Kings — "Theon III"
Noa is currently on the third book, A Storm of Swords, and plans on finishing all five books that have come out so far.
"I hope this will encourage fans of the show to read the books, and entertain book fans while we’re waiting for the sixth book."
