Brian Taylor — Game of Thrones Academia

Here is a one-day turnaround illustration for, the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s website.
The article was about a Ph.D. candidate and her “epic, dismal battle in quest of a tenture-track job.”
The article specifically references George R.R. Martin’s popular books. Check out more of my IlloCon posts here.


Thanks as always to Scott.
