HEY - YOU WANT TO DISCUSS WHICH DOCTOR IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER - DO THAT ON A DOCTOR WHO FORUM AND NOT MY DAMN ART THREAD. SERIOUSLY. Read more about why I'm ranting here --> [link]
"DOCTOR WHO? IT'S A GREAT DAY FOR TIME AND SPACE, EVERYBODY", February 2011. Digital drawing in Photoshop.If you have any questions about this piece, please read these Artist's Comments before you ask. Thanks.
Please keep in mind, yes, while I did work on the official Doctor Who comic book from IDW Publishing THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL COMIC BOOK COVER. It is simply fan art. See below for more info.
Well, a few days before leaving, the Gallifrey One
staff announced that The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (on CBS)
would be sending Chris Hardwick (aka Nerdist)
to Gallifrey One as a correspondent. Craig is an admitted Doctor Who fan, and Chris is a geek/nerd about a lot of geeky/nerdy things – Doctor Who being no exepction.
So in the middle of prepping for the trip, I put in about 4 or 5 hours into a quick Craig Ferguson as the Doctor. In retrospect, Geoff Peterson
should’ve been some sort of Cyberman-amalgam companion, but the monkey puppet had a fez, so…
Anyway, when it was complete, I sent a sneak-peak to internet bud Kyle Anderson
, who blogs on Nerdist.com
at times. In fact, he was the one that ran my image of “Days of Future Past” (my Doctor Who/X-men Cover montage)
Kyle loved it, passed it on to Chris, who also got a kick out of it, and then it found its way onto Nerdist.com
, and from there the internets in general. In fact, above is the first time it's appeared on a website controlled by myself.
But I didn’t know this; that was Wednesday, and I was in the air. I gave Kyle permission to post it, yeah, but I had no idea how far it was spreading.
It got attention though. Boy, did it.
