Throughout Game of Thrones sixth season, Tel Aviv-based illustrator and animator Eran Mendel created one looping GIF a week – focussing on an iconic moment from each in a way that's bound to raise a smile (though perhaps a sad one for Episode 2).

He's repeating this for the new Season 7 – starting with this unsanitary GIF of poor Samwell Tarley's initial training at being a maester.

Later this week, we'll publish an interview with Eran about the project, plus his GIF for the second episode of this season. In the meantime, check out his other Game of Thrones GIFs on the following pages – and Eran's other work on Dribbble and Facebook.
