Welcome to Blood Magic!

Hello! First post.
This blog was made for the Song of Ice and Fire ART ZINE called BLOOD MAGIC created by Maritsa, Kris, and Hunter.

We put this little book together in honor of the debut of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS which goes on sale TOMORROW!!! We will be at George R. R. Martin's NYC signing in Union Square's Barnes and Noble on THURSDAY to give a copy to the man himself and handing out these babies to fans if you would like a copy.

First off, thanks to everyone who submitted artwork to be printed! We had so many amazing pieces to sort through- we wish we could have included everything but we could not anticipate the amount of people who wanted to be a part of this.

We printed and bound our first 100 copies today! Folding night round one!

That's Kris- drinking a well deserved COLD ONE. Kris did all the fancy printing, I did some layout and some fancy borders, and Hunter did this fancy cover:

The interiors are all black and white prints and our fancy covers are printed on a risograph in three colors.

Hunter and Kris and I and lots of other AMAZING illustrators have some great ASOIAF art tucked away inside that we can't wait to show you. Stay tuned, lords and ladies!


[...Also, I just wanted to clarify- we aren't looking to make profit or represent GRRM or the book or B&N. This is simply for fun- to commemorate one of our favorite authors. :)]
