Artist Patrick Ballesteros has long been one of our favorite artists, and a mainstay for several years now at both San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon in Artists Alley. He’s best known for turning your favorite pop culture characters into kid-ified versions of themselves, offering a fresh take filled with plenty of childhood wonder in series like his popular 25 Cent Wonders or his “Can You Hear Me Now” series (where you can mix and match characters speaking long-distance to each other the old fashioned way: through a tin can!).
And even though it’s not May, Ballesteros already has your first print to get hyped for at San Diego Comic-Con: “Winter Fare-well”, a tribute to eight seasons of Game of Thrones.
“This print was not planned at all,” Ballesteros told us, “however, like everyone else that has been watching Game of Thrones since season 1, these are all character that I hold dear to my heart. It’s hard to see any of them go so this piece is my own love letter (artwork) to the remaining characters and a thank you to everyone who made 8 season possible.”
The print will be making its big debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, though there will be a one day resale for the print, with the date announced sometime in May. Ballesteros is still in the testing phase with the print, but you can expect either a 9×12 or a 11×14 print somewhere in the $25 price range.
