Illustrating "A CLASH OF KINGS"
In 2011 George R. R. Martin, creator of the bestselling “A Song of Ice and Fire” Series, approached artist Richard Hescox with the proposition of creating a huge set of illustrations for the upcoming Subterranean Press edition of his novel “A Clash of Kings”. Accepting the challenge and diving into what would become a year and a half project, Hescox was privileged to work closely with Martin who had to approve every image before it could be included in the two volume edition, assuring that every character and detail matched his vision.
Eventually completing 16 paintings and over 60 ink drawings for the book (due out in 2014), this volume is sure to become highly sought after and, because of the extremely limited size of the edition, a rare acquisition.
Here presented are some of the illustrations produced during the creation of the book.
