Winter is coming. We don't need the characters in Game of Thrones to tell us that (even though they frequently do): Unlike them, we have predictable seasons. And now we can enjoy our invariable forecast on a Game of Thrones calendar. Which, now that we think about it, is kind of like rubbing salt in someone's wounds.

Schadenfreude aside, artist John Picacio brought 12 characters from George R.R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire to life in this calendar, released yesterday. If you've only seen the television show Game of Thrones, some of these characters will be unfamiliar to you until the next season.

We're anticipating season two as much as we're looking forward to flipping the next page on this awesome calendar.

Check out the stylings of Picacio below.
