Bruckner’s latest project is a tribute to Game of Thrones. Bruckner tells BuzzFeed, “As it got close to summer my daughter (who has a knack for saying funny things) said, 'Dad, I really like the Hot Winter!' and I instantly had a vision of Jon Snow saying "Hot Winter is Coming.”
Since Game of Thrones returns on July 16th — smack dab in the middle of “Hot Winter,” lol — Bruckner thought it would be fun to take the show's characters and put them into funny summer-y situations.
He drew Daenerys and her Dragons making some s'mores.

And The Starks — OMG — taking a lovely day at the beach.
