So we are having a baby… That means that we have to make some major changes to living arrangements around here. So today was spent working on getting things cleaned up and prepped for a shuffling of rooms and what not. I imagine there is going to be a lot of that going on for us over the next few months as we start to get ready for the new member… of course it also means I did no drawing or anything today.
So today you get this, a blast from the past!
The Alphabet of Doctor Who Aliens and Enemies.
As a little Saturday morning bonus, and in light of the announcement tomorrow night I figured I would post the first Alphabet set that I drew.
The Doctor Who Alphabet (click to see full size version).
I have taken a lesson from some of the pro’s I follow and started to do a quick little warm up sketch before I get to work on my project.
Sometimes I can not think what to draw and let my daughters pick the subject…
This is the result of such a event. My oldest, Red, said I should Draw The Hulk as Doctor Who.
UPDATE: Turns out they were actually suits used by the RAF
A while back I was re-watching the Second Doctor Who (Patrick Troughton) serial Wheel in Space. During the episode two astronauts show up and I right away recognized the costumes from Star Wars: A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.
The Costumes worn by the astronauts would a decade later be pulled back off the costume shelf and reused as the costumes for Boshek (A New Hope) and Bossk (Empire). Made for a cool little geek moment seeing that.
What geeks desk could be complete without a Dalek sitting next to the computer. Of course the Desk would be even more complete if it had a Cyberman and Sontaran standing with the Dalek. Those will be added someday, when I have a job again or when I win the lottery.
The three of them (dalek,cyberman and sontaran) hold a special place for my geek heart. When I first found Dr. Who as a young geek it was watching the Tom Baker Episodes Genesis of the Daleks,Sontarran Experiment and Revenge of the Cybermen. As much as I love the current run of Dr. Who these episodes will always be the best in my mind. The Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan taking on the galaxies worst to save the day.
