Artist/illustrator/graphic designer Mike Wrobel has debuted the second part of his “Game of Thrones 80s/90s” series. Mike’s description for the collection is as follows: “What “Game of Thrones” would have looked like if the action had been set in a contemporary period such as the 80s and 90s? What if swords, bows, spears and armors had been replaced with some NES guns, bats and tracksuits? This is a fun project I’ve been recently starting, imagining all the characters fighting for the throne in a 80/90s grunge/gangsta/hip-hop era.” For Mike’s store head on over here. The first part of the series can be viewed here.
