GOOD NEWS: Game of Thrones is returning in less than a week.
And we need a Game of Thrones themed post to ride the hype train. And luckily, I just found just the graphic designer to feature.
Russian illustrator Ivan Belikov was previously featured here with his Social Networks illustrations and now he’s back with his Game of Thrones sigils for the great houses of Westeros, Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen and Lannister.
Belikov is a freelance illustrator from Chelyabinsk, Russia. As a child, he dreamed of being an animator and started spending his free time illustrating. Now, he creates t-shirt designs, posters and cover designs for albums. He has been published in London’s VRS Magazine and CREATIV magazine.
Beasts and feathers have a special place in his art, a perfect fit for the Game of Thrones numerous houses and heraldry.
In this wonderful combination of graphic design and typography, Belikov’s set Game of Thrones aims to depict house sigils mixed with the fates of its characters.
“I found putting the fates of the characters and the specific heraldric features together harder than I thought it would be,” Belikov says.

By the way, R + L = J *wink*
