I was commissioned by Big Chief Studios to do some more Doctor Who artwork for official BBC licensing! This is a portrait of the Tenth Doctor called “The Turn of the Universe,” it goes with my Eleventh portrait “The Roar of Our Stars.” (Ninth Doctor is also coming shortly in this series!)

Will be available to buy online as an official print from Big Chief Studios & BBC in the near future!!

When you go outside tomorrow, just take a look at a little piece of your world, a corner of your garden or a park or even the grass that’s growing in a crack in the pavement, because there will be life there, and it will be unique. There will be nowhere like that anywhere else in the universe. And that’s makes our tree from the sturdiest branch to the most fragile twig indescribably valuable.

i love how you got every kind of science fiction and fantasy here like youve got werewolves, an angel and two men hunting demons, an alien thats over 1200 years old flying around in a phone booth, a sorcerer in camelot in the black centuries and a boy that discovers he is a magic kid and there are tons more of magic and fantasy shit here and then youve got

no fantasy

no unrealistic things

no science fiction

no romance

just a crime show and it has a huge fandom

The Boiling Rock

The Boiling Rock was inspired by the prison island of Alcatraz (see Art Book p. 157).

But what I find really cool is that there’s a real place in the Philippines, the Taal Volcano, which is a boiling lake in a caldera in a lake with an island inside it. Pretty cool flaming, isn’t it :D

If you want to know more about that volcano go watch BBC’s Wonder of Life. I really enjoyed that series.

It must be innately human, the desire to understand how our home came to be the way that it is. And seen from lunar orbit against the blackness of space, the Earth is a fragile world, but seen by science, it’s a world that’s been crafted and shaped by life over almost four billion years. So we’re on our way to understanding how we came to be here, but as the Apollo astronauts discovered, the journey of discovery has already delivered much more than just the facts, because it’s given us a powerful perspective on the intricacy and beauty of our home.
