Game of Thrones Characters, Autocorrected

Artist James Chapman depicted Game of Thrones characters as the autocorrected versions of their fantastical names, and the results are funny and delightful.

Chapman, a physics Phd student and the author of Soundimals: An Illustrated Guide to Animal Sounds in Other Languages, found that his phone’s autocorrect kept interfering when he messaged friends about GoT. He told us the suggestions varied almost every time, so he started writing them down and soon compiled an “insane” list.

“It wasn’t a shining endorsement for the phone, but it certainly gave me something fun to draw,” Chapman said. His favorite character to portray was Hodor, because it’s a pleasure to draw anyone looking so happy—especially considering this cast of characters and season 5’s relentlessly dark tone.

The autocorrect struggle is real, but in this case resulted in a wonderful collection of variant Game of Thrones scenes. Chapman’s art makes light of autocorrect inanity and whimsically uses puns and word-play to render the characters as we’ve never seen them before:

Luigi: I suppose you are going to throw that shell at me if I pass you.

Varys: A wise assumption, but suppose this shell is meant for another?

Luigi: A possibility. Considering there are many other karts on the track. Though none closer to yours than mine.

Varys nods.

Varys: That would preclude that your proximity to me mean you pose the greatest threat.

Luigi: Or that I pose the greatest opportunity... I suppose it depends on one’s intent.

Varys: And what is your intent, Luigi?

Luigi grins.
