Brendan Monroe

Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.

Game of Thrones Drinking Game

It’s finally here! Game of Thrones returns to television tonight on HBO. No doubt there will be many viewing parties, like this one put together last year by Geeky Hostess, and what party is complete without games? The Savory has put together a drinking game for the season. From the looks of it, you won’t need to worry about any of your favorite characters dying because a few minutes in and you’ll probably be completely numb and on your way to forgetting the entire night.

Please drink responsibly.
