WOTAN coffee table book is required!

Okay, so I did some mock-ups for a WOTAN coffee table book as well... 

You can't have too many Dr WHO coffee table books for Christmas in The Works!

Selected Pages From The New Dr WHO Hardback - Chumbley

There's a new Doctor Who coffee table book on the way to bookshelves shortly. It's called DALEK and is about Daleks. It costs £35.*

I've seen some of the pages from it and have come to the conclusion that I want some of that so here's my attempt at a similar tome dedicated to everyone's 44th favourite Dr WHO monster/robot - the Chumbleys

I've called it "CHUMBLEY"

* If the price is too steep, do bear in mind that last year's similarly lavish coffee table book - The Whoniverse - is currently on the bargain table in WHSmiths for seven quid.

Vintage Season Box Sets For The First Dr WHO

The William Hartnell box set cover seemed to go down well so I've completed the set. I don't think the style will suit Patrick Troughton's Dr WHO though. 

Might need a re-think...

(The first Hartnell box set is here.)




Christmas with the TV's Survivors

It's nearly Christmas again and the shops are full of festive merchandise and cheer. Well they are round my patch...

You may recall the LP "A Very Survivors Christmas" from a few years back based on the Terry Nation series of the 70s. (Not that remake thing with Julie Graham).

Well here's more from that particular selection box.. 




BBC DVD Box Art Re-done

After a particularly heavy week, I felt the need to do something a bit more serious so I did something I'd been meaning to do for some time. That was to clean up and re-do the DVD box art I'd created for myself many years ago for the Quatermass Trilogy. I (like so many others) don't particularly like the artwork that the BBC used on the original release. It looked more Evil Dead then classic BBC drama! 

I had based the design on the classic Penguin Books style and it seemed to work. Folks on Twitter have always shown their appreciation on the look. But it was one of the first mock covers I'd attempted in Photoshop and I certainly no longer had the original layered file on any of my current drives. 

So this new version has been created from scratch and includes a back cover more in tune with BBC DVD releases. It even includes the actual bar code from the commerical version! 

I've also done ones for A For Andromeda and a speculative (but vintage) one for the first season of Doctor Who.
