Sapphire and Steel have been assigned to your grocery order... again!

When times are bored I usually turn to Sapphire and Steel. And creating a few more products to add to my shopping list. 

Soon I hope to have accrued enough to create one of those tabloid size advertising 'leaflets' Iceland pop through your letterbox once a week...




 

Some more bits of Doctor Who art stuff...

Posted some of these on the Twitter but since they weren't jokey, they did get many 'likes'. 

I'm a serious artist, gadammit!!!

Dr WHO LPs for Record Store Day

It's nice that 'City of Death' and 'Tomb of the Cybermen' have been released on vinyl for Record Store Day. However, they're not really the Dr Who records of our youth. They're actually just double album releases of the CDs from a few years ago. Unedited. Back in 1979, BBC Records and Tapes released a heavily edited (but still coherent) adaptation of 'Genesis of the Daleks' narrated by Tom Baker with a cover that featured Sex Pistols-style artwork juxtaposed with a glam rock coloured version of the diamond DW logo. (Oh, for the days of fluid branding!)

Here's a selection of period style sleeves in homage of that first LP.

The Doctor Who Woman Book - Fixed and Re-done...

I don't usually go back and redo things.

Oh alright I do. I lost many of the original Photoshop files of my early work when my old PC went down the creek a few years ago so I had to redo a number of them from scratch when I came to create postcards and populate my RedBubble shop with stuff folk can actually buy. Or not, looking at the sales figures.

However, I made a huge mistake (even by my standards) on my Doctor Who Woman Book last year by using totally the wrong version of Futura on it. I didn't notice at the time. There's a point where you make a mistake so often it starts to look right and it also affected some of my later Target Book covers. I was grateful to the lovely (and always helpful) Clayton Hickman for pointing it out but not so happy that I'd missed such a glarring error.

Anyhow, here's a revamped version of The Target Doctor Who Woman Book. The gags are the same rather desperate ones that were in the original, just the fonts have been changed to protect the dignity of the design hack behind them.

Three More Gerry Anderson TV Shows Get Their TVTimes Covers

This is a bit of mopping up from a previous post. When I do a "selection" of TV shows, there's always someone who says, "But why haven't you done such-and-such a show?" So these are a few more TVTimes covers for Gerry Anderson shows not included in the last but two post. 

And for anyone who says that ITV didn't broadcast Space Precinct, don't forget that by the time that show made it to the screen, TVTimes was covering not just the BBC channels but also satellite as well.
