GoT fan art 01: Claire Barrow

The visual artist and designer sketches out Game of Thrones, Season 8, Episode 1.

Claire Bar­row comes well equipped to guide us through Game of Thrones, HBO’s sprawl­ing fan­ta­sy epic, cur­rent­ly enjoy­ing its eighth and final (!) sea­son on the telly.

Born in Yarm, North York­shire, the mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary artist has brain like Sansa and a voice like Ser Davos. Her work – a twist­ed, sur­re­al world of scary mon­sters and super creeps – would look as much at home in the lands of Wes­t­eros as the racks of high-end LA retail store H.Lorenzo. She can han­dle a nee­dle bet­ter than Arya. Sh– well, you get the point.

Fol­low­ing Mon­day night’s sur­pris­ing­ly fun­ny and death-free sea­son pre­miere – main take­away: Cer­sei Lan­nis­ter loves ele­phants – Claire sat down to respond in the only way you real­ly could. With some bonkers, ins­es­tu­ous fan art. Enjoy.

Hel­lo Claire! Could you defeat a White Walker?

Well, I don’t have any drag­on­glass or Valyr­i­an steel items handy so fire would be my only option. I would have to be pret­ty close to one to set them on fire and there’s a chance they wouldn’t die very fast.

Should Jon and Daen­erys be kissing?

Yer, I think they should.…

Are you House Stark or House Lannister?

Stark. I can relate to the Starks being from the North and hav­ing the same accent.

How are your drag­on rid­ing skills?

I’ve been on one of those rodeo bull ride things and I was okay. That’s all I have to com­pare to. Just cling on!

Who’s going to end up on the Iron Throne?

I think they will split the king­doms up once the throne room gets blown up by wild­fire. Alter­na­tive­ly, it would be cool to see the Night King sat on the Throne sur­round­ed by snow and main char­ac­ters resurrected.

What are you going to do when Game of Thrones ends?

Re-watch old episodes over and over again.
