The Best “Game Of Thrones” Fan Art

The Game of Thrones series is superlative in many ways, from its status as the all-time most pirated TV show to its creator’s uncanny ability to kill off all the characters we hold dear.

We would like to take a moment to add another item to the list of things at which the George R.R. Martin saga excels: inspiring fans to produce some truly stunning–and totally geeky–art.

As we await our latest Thrones fix (and of course, the return of Jon Snow), have a look at the series’ best artistic depictions below:

Life Inside A Tiny Parisian Apartment

What would you be willing to put up with in order to live in Paris? Maybe several flights of stairs and a living space about the size of a large closet? If that’s the case, then this diminutive domicile is just for you. With an area of only 86 square feet, this is without a doubt one of the tiniest homes in Paris. And yet, it’s entirely functional.
