Artist Alley: Beautiful Death


It’s common knowledge that Game of Thrones is one the most death filled franchises of all time. Author, George R.R. Martin, is renowned for killing off some of his most beloved characters in his books, 54 people died in his first book alone. The image above shows just how many deaths there are – a post it note for each murder.

With the new season of Game of Thrones on its way, I’m looking forward to a whole new set of deaths, but in the meantime, check out these beautiful posters that depict some of the most poignant murders from each episode. HBO are creating a poster a day, counting down to the premiere of season four. Illustrator Robert Ball has done an amazing job with these. He has picked his favourite death from each episode and created an image that he feels represents it’s impact on the season.

Currently they have only released season one in full, and are working their way through season two. The posters for Season one are below. I think I recognise most of the deaths depicted, though I’m a little stuck on Episode three – Dark Wings, Dark Words..
