Artist Gary Gianni, who is bringing George R.R. Martin’s Ice & Fire world and characters to life in a 2014 calendar, has announced all 12 paintings will be unveiled in July at the San Diego Comic-Con.
When George R.R. Martin announced Gianni’s selection a year ago he said,
I’ve been a huge fan of Gianni’s ever since I first stumbled upon a copy of the Wandering Star limited edition of The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane (my favorite Robert E. Howard character, fwiw). Until I saw the Wandering Star book, the notion that any other artist could ever do a Solomon Kane to compare to Jeff Jones’s version would have struck me as rank heresy, but Gianni’s art blew me away.
Gianni has also been mentioned here in connection with his artwork for Bradbury’s The Nefertiti-Tut Express: A Story in Screenplay.
The 2014 calendar will be published by Random House and can be pre-ordered through Amazon.com.
