Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Vashti Quiroz-Vega, for those of you visiting for the first time. I am a writer of Fantasy, Suspense and Thrillers. I do, however, have a tendency to mix a little Romance, horror or humor (among other genres) into my stories.
I love art, creativity and beauty, and I know these come in many forms. In my quest to build my author platform, I have met and befriended a group of incredibly talented individuals. Writers, poets, artists and even singers who are masterful at what they do. I feel blessed to have found them, and I would be selfish if I kept the beauty, artistry and creativeness of their craft all to myself.
So for the next few weeks I will be featuring their art, writings and music along with my own work on this blog. I guarantee you will enjoy every bit of it.
In today’s post I will feature a talented artist name Erin Coldrick. I came across one of Erin Coldrick’s illustrations on Google+, and I was mesmerized. Those of you who know me are aware that I love the HBO series “Game of Thrones” (okay, I’m obsessed with it). I asked Erin if I might see more of her work, and it turns out that she loves the series as much as I do (we’re kindred nerds). Her drawings are marvelous to say the least, so I was compelled to show them off here on my blog. Even if you’re not a geeky fan of the show (like I am), you can still enjoy the skill and creativeness that went into these beautiful pencil drawings.
I added a few quotes and other elements from the show for dramatic reasons (further establishing my geekiness).
Erin Coldrick has been an artist for over twenty years. She loves working with pencil, but has also experimented with color painting. She lives in rural Nova Scotia, Canada, with her handsome husband of nine years and their beautiful eight-year-old daughter. Erin has been a tattoo artist for the last thirteen years. She works out of her own shop.

I hope you enjoy Erin Coldrick’s stunning portrayals of characters from the fantasy series “Game of Thrones.”
WINTER IS COMING. The North remembers. There is no shelter from the storm. Fear cuts deeper than swords. …and not a soul to hear. Can a man still be brave when he is afraid? That is the only time a man can be brave. ~Game of Thrones

Lord Commander Jeor Mormont
He gave up his lands to serve the Night’s Watch.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death.
I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children.
I shall wear no crowns and win no glory.
I SHALL LIVE AND DIE AT MY POST.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the fire that burns against the cold.
The light that brings the dawn.
The horn that wakes the sleepers.
The shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch.
For this night and for all nights to come.
