Every year, we get a new calendar full of illustrations inspired by George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, famously adapted by HBO as the TV show Game of Thrones. The calendars have taken us to some faraway places we never actually visit in the books or show. That tradition will continue with the 2025 Song of Ice and Fire calendar, which will feature artwork from Eddie Mendoza.

Mendoza has a prolific career; in addition to working as a senior concept artist at Apple, he contributed images to The Rise of the Dragon, a book about Targaryen history that came out in 2022. Check out his picture of the Iron Islands he put together: shared an image of what looks like the cover of the 2025 calendar. They identify the castle in his picture as Starfall, the ancestral seat of House Dayne, a Dornish family who didn't feature on Game of Thrones at all:

"Artist Eddie Mendoza brings us the landscapes and castles of Westeros as never seen before, with thirteen stunning illustrations, including a bonus fold-out poster," reads the product description for the calendar on Amazon. "Journey across Westeros and Essos with artist Eddie Mendoza, who brings us both new takes on some of the classic series locations as well as never-before-seen locales. From Skagos to Qarth, the Water Gardens to the Nightfort, here is the width and breadth of the Seven Kingdoms and Essos as you have never experienced it before, full of majesty and sweeping vistas."

The Song of Ice and Fire calendars have been coming out since 2009. The 2025 edition will be available to order on July 24. Now all that's left to be done is for Martin to finish writing The Winds of Winter so the artists will have some new source material to inspire them.

Next. Silmarillions. Let's dreamcast a live-action adaptation of The Silmarillion. dark
