DR WHO Radio Times by BrianAW DR WHO Radio Times by BrianAW
This was one of those jobs that just made my inner fanboy go "sqweeee!" I've always loved Frank Bellamy's work on GARTH and, especially, the Dr Who stuff he did for Radio Times way back when. The smaller image is an original Radio Times cover from 1972 and the larger is one I did for Dr Who Magazine to illustrate an article about a nearly made (but not quite) Daleks TV series that Terry Nation tried to get off the ground in the late 60's.
I'm an illustrator, not a graphic designer (dammit, Jim!) but this was one of those occasions where the editorial team took my idea of faking up a cover as it would have looked in the day and ran with it. I know it's not a patch on a real Bellamy, but it was a blast to do - one of those jobs that was good for the soul!

Fantastic! I would have loved to see the Dalek TV show pilot. I don't know if it would have worked as a full series, but it would have made a fantastic miniseries.

As for the art itself, absolutely terrific! The colors are wonderful, the Daleks look as menacing as anytime they've appeared on the show. You should be drawing the Doctor Who comics.

Thank's, man - maybe not technically my best stuff, but I think it's one of my favourites just for the chance to do a tip of the hat to a master.:)

I wonder what Terry Nation's Dalek series would have been like...
