Born, raised and based out of Austin, Texas, Emily Blincoe is a creative and passionate photographer who brings unique interactions into the things she photographs. Emily’s approach to capturing her photographs is spontaneous, fun and amusing. On one day, Emily could find herself focusing on a subject with a serious and reflective tone, and on the next, she could be involving friends to pose for one of her playful ideas. “I love to have a little fun in the way I take portraits, and if I can translate a little bit of my sense humor into a photo, I certainly will. Most of my friends and family no longer question my requests or motives. They are usually pretty quick to comply these days. It’s not unusual to hear me say something like, ‘I saw some cool flowers at the grocery store. I will be over in 10 minutes to put them in your beard.’ or ‘Hey, can you put this on your head and go sit over there?” (source: VSCO Cam™)

After getting sucked into the Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” I became intrigued by author George R.R. Martin’s in-depth descriptions of each major character’s heraldry, and the ways in which their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for each of the story’s families.
I hadn’t seen a design take on the sigils that I was fond of, and so a personal mission to craft an icon for each of them began. Of course, there’s hundreds of crests, so some lesser houses didn’t quite make the cut. Sorry Manderlys of White Harbor.
