I'm an Illustrator goddammit, not a Doctor!

Make a note in your diaries for Monday the 17th of November , BBC 1, 13.45pm......a piece of my artwork is going to be on 'Doctors'! I haven't seen the episode so I'm not sure how long it will feature, if it's anything like the last episode I did it'll be milli-seconds!! (I'll put that piece up later)

One of the characters is a comics nerd (all bow to him) and I believe my poster of a comic cover is going to be on his wall in his bedroom. As I said earlier, I did some work for the same character last year. I produced a mock up comic cover for the props department (and also a logo for the t-shirt he was wearing) he was carrying it around with him but this is where the programme researchers made a fatal flaw......he ROLLED IT UP AND RAMMED IT INTO HIS BACK POCKET!!! Any true comics nerd would never do this!! HAHA!

Anyway, I'm really pleased with this piece...I just hope they don't kill the nerd off.....of course they could bring him back in a shower scene where everything was a dream!!

That comes after Bargain hunt doesn't it? I usually turn it off then, but I might make an exception for this Great Occasion!
God, you are right, that is such a bad bit of characterisation - he'd never do that to a comic!

Fame at last!

Very cool image. Hope they show it for longer this time. Will try and watch it.

Brilliant image - hope it gets some decent air-time. I'll try and remember to watch it! (In his back pocket? Wouldn't happen!)

Well done Goth, thats fantastic having your work on TV!
The colours on that poster are so vibrant, I love the contrast of blues and greys with reds and oranges.

That is a great piece of work goth.

So great, that at first glance I thought someone else had done it, har, har!

I may even have to break a habit of a lifetime and watch that soap episode:¬)
