Matteo Draws Again
Here's another from Matteo Bocci, who writes from Italy to say:
"... I was working on a new illustration inspired by your Song of Ice and Fire, involving Robb Stark (yes, Robb Stark again)... when I came back home one afternoon, after a particularly hard day at work, and I saw Eddard Stark!
Well, this is the effect work (and your beautiful saga) can have on some mental disturbed people like me, I must admit it, but I look my brother Andrea and I thought: 'Wow, fifteen years in the future my brother could look like I imagine Eddard' so I painted a portrait of my brother, drawing him older and with longer beard and hairs, with a bizarre silhouette of Winterfell on the background. I imagined this picture like one of the last moments of quiet of Eddard in Winterfell, or maybe like the moment of his leaving for the South of Westeros, with a bit of melancholy in his eyes.
I hope you'll enjoy it, even if I don't think you imagine Eddard like my brother--and of course I hope my brother could take his head on for a long time and that I will not be sent to the Wall. I usually dress in black, I like cold temperatures, but I don't like chastity and undead people that much "
