The Wacom tablet adds texture, shading and colour to the illustrations

There have been some incredible design tributes to Game of Thrones (opens in new tab)over the years, with artists a-plenty lending their skills to their favourite TV show. Here, Marc Simonetti (opens in new tab) created illustrations of the Throne itself for new book – 'The World of Ice and Fire (opens in new tab)' – using hand-drawn sketches and his trusty Wacom tablet (opens in new tab).

The book is a lavishly illustrated volume that charts the comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones.

The black and white sketches are hand drawn and then corrected and shaded with the Wacom, making all the difference in terms of texture and overall execution. This is a must for any Game of Thrones fan – we can't quite get enough of the detail in the offerings.
