Curse of the Daleks by fresian-cat
Curse of the Daleks
Again for Fannual, the editor asked me for an adaptation of the 1965 stage play Curse of the Daleks which, as no photos of the production are known to exist, used reference from the Dr Who and the Daleks film, and actor photos from the casting directory Spotlight. These were all provided by the editor, who also gave me a very detailed layout to work from. The upshot of that was that even though he had asked for a black and white strip, I had the time to paint it in colour for him.
Fannual02 by fresian-cat
For these pieces, I was asked to stand in for another artist who had to pull out due to other art commitments, so I tried my best to paint in his style, so it didn't stand out. Thankfully, he was very nice about them. Phew! The yellow car is actually wrong - I know nothing about cars, and ended up drawing the wrong year - it was made after the Fannual was 'set'. Thankfully, the editors worked around my incompetance!
Dr. Who Fannual by fresian-cat
Dr. Who Fannual
I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to the Dr. Who Fannual, based around the Peter Cushing films.

As it was a pastiche of the World Distributors Annuals, I attempted to draw these in the style of the '60s annual. Those roses that Dr. Who is carrying are based on the actual strain of rose that was named after Cushing's wife. Seemed a nice touch - even if no-one would have noticed. And, yes, the cafe is the one from Remembrance of the Daleks
Nick Briggs Tribute by fresian-cat
Nick Briggs Tribute
Nick Briggs has been the voice of the aliens in the New Series of Doctor Who, and likewise in the Big Finish universe. Just a little tribute to him, in the style of the old Target covers
UNIT by fresian-cat
A drawing of UNIT from their glory days of the 1970s (or was it the '80s??)

I've tried to do it in a 70s style, such as you might have seen in the World Distributors' Annuals.

A bit of colour might help that along...
Hi there,

I've dipped my toe into the world of blogging.
The blog is based around the artwork I have in my collection. There will be a lot of Doctor Who artwork appearing on there over time, but there will be other pieces, too. These will include comic art, advertising art, comic art.

Feel free to pop over and tell me how to improve! I'm a complete novice, and have yet to find 'my voice', so any pointers are welcome...

I used to study art as a youngster, but a wrongly-judged choice of uni took me down a different path. I've not painted for many years, but when I dug some of my old work out of the depths of the loft, it's reignited the urge to try. I only hope I've not forgotten how to paint!
If anyone remembers Ploppy, say Hi :)

Thank you so much for the Watch :bow: BTW I love your work, it reminds me of when I wanted to draw comics for a living. Keep it up :boing::)

Wow! That's a very kind thing to say. I'm quite flabbergasted, to be honest.

As for the Watch, my pleasure, your work is stunning.
