I am, by day, a professional artist. Although I am a graphic designer I also provide photography, illustration and cartoons as required on projects. I’m also very lucky that I enjoy what I do for a living.
Which is why I do stuff in my free time which is very similar to what I do for work, for fun!
I am, also, a huge Doctor Who fan, so I have just had great fun drawing up the three strips of Tales of the Sly Ditt Inn which made up my 50th Anniversary tribute. I didn’t go the whole hog and write a timey-wimey arc, or put in lots of in jokes and fan-fest ideas. I just wanted to use a little of my free time to draw one of my heroes (and a couple of his foes). So I did and it was great fun.
I know that these strips can be found in the webcomics section of the site but I just wanted to share them with you right here, right now. Fun right?
I am of course happier with some elements than others. Poor Chris Ecclestone has been hard done by for example and Colin and Jon appear to have swapped noses. Also, the revelation regarding the ‘new’ Ninth Doctor (the fabulous John ‘The Storyteller’ Hurt) came a little to late for me to get him in strip one of three. I also like the idea of Ice Warriors drinking sherry.
Hope you like ’em all too and found it all a little fun.
