Well, this started a project. For fun, I began to draw portraits of each of the Doctors in my sketchbook (accompanied this time by little fob-watches in the corners counting down their numbering.) I hadn't planned at the time to do finished versions of the sketches, but... sadly, my dad had suddenly died and I was home from work and needed something else with which to occupy my mind. So I started painting the Tenth Doctor (because he was my friend Sandra Franklin's favorite and she would be flying in to visit from England the following week) and I barely left the drawing table that week.
I finished Ten in two days-- a record time for me. (The other 14 pictures to follow weren't done in such a similarly sad fervor.)
Then I thought: "Well, let's keep going..."
So I did.
Titan Comics has been producing a fantastic line of Doctor Who comics for several years now and for fun, I took some of my own Doctor illustrations and made little mock-up covers using their sketch-variant blank cover templates. (I showed you some of these a few months ago here on Patreon.)
I was contacted just recently by Titan Comics, (who saw them on Twitter). I was asked if I wanted to contribute to doing some variant covers for their ongoing series featuring the Ninth through the Twelfth Doctor.
I think you know how I answered that question.
As well as, "Which Doctor would you like to start with...?"
Well, see above.
