A little over a year ago, Vic and I were sitting around outside Trouble Coffee on a lazy Sunday when I misread a T-shirt that I thought said “Slynt,” which got us talking about all of the Game of Thrones proper nouns that would make excellent heavy metal band names. I thought about how much fun I’d have custom-lettering a full set of band logos and started sketching immediately. Unfortunately, they quickly ended up on the back burner the way all personal projects do.
A couple months ago, I wrote and designed this piece and it did really well, so when my editors asked if I wanted to do another Game of Thrones piece for the finale, I remembered the metal band logos and pitched them the idea. Good thing they went for it, because I probably never would have finished these otherwise!
See the full piece here, which includes dumb little blurbs that I cobbled together from my fairly limited knowledge on the subject. Get excited for Sunday.
