Paintings: Cersei Lannister

One of the Redditors notes "That dress has a similar colour scheme to Sheogorath's clothes from Shivering Isles. Fitting. Mad God, mad Queen."  Another remarks that, "It's a true mark of artisan quality when a painting of a fake queen from a fictional tv show makes you want to smack the shit out of the painting."  I have to agree with the last.  Cersei is far and away my favorite television character to root against... at least now that Joffrey is dead.
"You could be the king, but watch the queen conquer 👑 👑 👑 It only took me a year and a half but I finally finished a Queen Cersei painting?? Also someone come hang out with me please because I need something to do now that this is done"

Crafts: Stark Sigil

Yeah, pulling apart an animal to make a sigil feels more like a Bolton thing than a Stark thing, but who knows, maybe these butterflies failed to kill all the wolves. Still, this piece reminds me of that story about Orson Lanister, and I can't help but imagine the artist making "Kuh, Kuh, Kuh" sounds as she made it.

I love how universally adored this show is, but how much does it have to suck to dodge spoilers for an entire day until the show airs locally? Ugh.

Wow, great mural.  Who gets to park in there?
No one.

The British Library has digitized Leonardo da Vinci's Notebook ('The Codex Arundel') and made 570 digitized images available online: The notebook of Leonardo da Vinci ('The Codex Arundel') is a collection of papers written in Italian by Leonardo da Vinci (b. 1452, d. 1519), in his characteristic left-handed mirror-writing (reading from right to left), including diagrams, drawings and brief texts, covering a broad range of topics in science and art, as well as personal notes. The core of the notebook is a collection of materials that Leonardo describes as 'a collection without order, drawn from many papers, which I have copied here, hoping to arrange them later each in its place according to the subjects of which they treat' (f. 1r), a collection he began in the house of Piero di Braccio Martelli in Florence, in 1508. To this notebook has subsequently been added a number of other loose papers containing writing and diagrams produced by Leonardo throughout his career. Decoration: Numerous diagrams. More on Leonardo's notebooks from The Guardian's Jonathan Jones. [Via]

Paintings: Because It Felt Good

Prints available for purchase from inPRNT. US$15/20/40

I don't think there's ever been a character more fun to hate than Cersei Lannister.  You root for her to get her comeuppance, then you root for her to get her revenge.  In this portrait Vjuzhanina catches everyone's favorite villainess in a moment of quite introspection, looking every inch the evil queen.

As I was scrolling through the Game of Thrones SubReddit, I initially thought that the thumbnail of this painting was a photo. Turns out it's a digital painting by portrait artist Mandy Jurgens who does some incredible work. If you like this one, you have to check out her Wonder Woman and Armor study.  Make sure you follow the source link and give her a much-deserved upvote for her effort.
