Game of Thrones Deaths Posterized in Artsy Countdown

got deaths 2

Artist Robert M. Ball is illustrating a Game of Thrones death every day until season four's April 6th premiere.

Be wary! The following images contain Game of Thrones spoilers!

Game of Thrones' season four premiere is only a few weeks away and, in turn, its many fans around the world are preparing in their own way. Some, for instance, are re-watching the previous seasons or reading the books. Others meanwhile are likely setting up post-season therapy sessions to help themselves deal with the trauma of what's likely to come. Artist Robert M. Ball, meanwhile, is illustrating every major death in the show.

Ball, who was set to the task by HBO, has been recreating a death a day as a sort of artistic countdown to the show's return. The images, which currently number 19, have been designed in such a way that they're largely abstract. Even so, people just getting into the show or just catching up on it may want to avoid these Ball's Thrones-centric art pieces until after they're up to speed on all the terrible horrible things that happen in the first three seasons.

In the mean time, fans that enjoy Ball's work are being encouraged to submit their own art based on their favorite death from the show. I personally won't being doing that (stick figures are more my speed), but I do very much look forward to seeing the rest of Ball's illustrations as the countdown continues. Take a look at the currently available offerings and let us know which ones you like best.

Maybe we wouldn't have to be so wary of spoilers for so long if they wouldn't take forever and a day to release another season.

Haha,
You know nothing, Jon Snow.

Try and be a fan of the book series and than we can talk about waiting for another release, ok?

The last one is still the best quote of the show to date: "Those are brave men knocking at our door....let's go kill them!" Stay classy, Little Imp.

Captcha: Tacky!

Damn is that some nice art. I wish I had money so that I wish I could buy them.

I dare Robert to illustrate the royal BBQ party.

Lol! Yeah, the new season will come out soon enough. I just read through all the books last year, so I've not had to wait as long as most of the fans, but it's still killing me. I'm jealous that I didn't know about the series sooner, but I'm so, so thankful I got to read through 1-5 without all the years in between. What hell those fans have gone through.

I would have been so pissed if I had been a fan when AFFC was released. "Hey guys, this is the end of the book, but don't worry, next one is coming in like a year MAX!!!! Promise!"

I believe the next one was released 6 years later.
