I love television. Television is my favorite method of taking in stories. Over the past ten years, we’ve been blessed with the greatest epic fantasy series on television: Game of Thrones.
I am a huge fan of the series, it’s one of my top five TV shows of all time. I think it has amazing characters, amazing character development, fantastic female characters, fabulous world-building, and so much more.
Today I’m sharing the art journal that I created during Season 07 of the series. The purpose of this journal was so that I could keep my anxious hands busy while I watched the first run of each episode. I needed a project that could keep my hands moving while I kept my eyes on the screen.
This journal was created in a standard size travelers notebook. I adhered two sheets of paper back to back to give myself sturdier pages. I also made sure I had a page for each of the seven episodes.
Before each episode, I watercolored several sheets of book paper with the same few colors of watercolor paint. I made sure to watercolor way more sheets than I needed. The last thing I wanted was to run out of watercolored paper in the middle of the episode.
I decorated the cover with some stickers. White alphabets and white glitter icon stickers. Putting everything in the upper middle third of the page. I journaled a little *season 7* with black pen underneath the block.
Each episode got its own page and I did a little bit of pre-work for each episode.
While the episode was happening, I would just sit on the couch and cut letters in the episode title. If I finished up with all the letters in the title, I would just keep working on the letter I was least happy with (it was usually an S).
It was really awesome to make progress on
It was great to be able to keep my hands busy while I was watching the show and wind up with this cool fan-art. I also love that I was able to create something meaningful to document Game of Thrones time without spending any extra time during the week talking about what I think or feel (even though I thought and felt SO much). I could just leave it at these awesome episode pages and be content.
