“i’m the doctor.”

beginning to fill in the doctor’s background pattern with icons from 50 years of bbc telly…

here’s the final background pattern– with the (tenth) doctor’s feet.

my right hand seen here painting in the blue background with beautiful gouache around each and every icon shape…
doctor 4
background done… with the exception of those feet!
doctor 5
and final gouache painting– sneakers included.

“i’m the doctor.”

so perhaps not a traditional faerie tale, but fifty years of british television, film, radio, and numerous published short stories has made this time traveller worthy of an iconic faerie tale feet rendering.

seen here, of course, are the eleventh doctor’s sneakers and pinstripe pants. but background icons that cross many of the doctors’ incarnations and timelines make their appearances. bowties are cool, for example. as well as the weeping angels, the beauteous tardis, the cybermen, rose (not my personal fave companion; but probably just jealous over here), the daleks, the sonic screwdriver… you see.
