doctor who show at meltdown


Here's my piece for the Doctor Who show at Meltdown Comics. I've been wanting to work on a Doctor Who illustration for a long time now, and I'm so thrilled to be a part of this exhibit!

The inspiration behind this piece came from my love of vintage travel posters. I'm planning on doing a series of these with different Doctors and companions. This one is from "The Rings of Akhaten" episode. While in the Tardis, the Doctor asks Clara what she would like to see, and she responds with "I'd like to see...something awesome!"

Prints of this will be available in my shop

carried away

( gouache on paper)

The conversation that led to this painting:

Husband (9:50pm): "Honey, can you do a small painting for an art fundraiser?"
Me: "Sure, when is the art due?"
Husband: "Tomorrow."
Me: "... ... Sure."

Had to work on paper I'm not used to, but it was a nice little challenge. Didn't have time to scan the painting so please excuse the quality of the image. Doing this quick painting made me decide to do more of these small paintings as an exercise to get better with gouache. :)
