So, I’m a lifetime Doctor Who fan. And, well … I’ve kinda’ gotten Grace and Cate into it. The recent resurgeance of Doctor Who and the new series are great, but I will always love the classic series more.
When the boys over at www.ComicTWART.com picked my favorite Timelord as their subject of this week, I told Grace. She was excited … and off we draw. She chose to draw the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee. I was afraid the first Doctor, William Hartnell, wouldn’t get any love, so he was my pick. And, seeing 1 and 3 together, well … I had to add another 5- (ahem … 10-) minute sketch of Patrick Troughton.
As further evidence of my childhood passion for Who, here’s a photo taken as I leave to “graduate” from 8th grade. It looks like I’m just standing there beaming, but … yes … I’m imitating William Harnell’s famous lapel stroke.
As any guest to this site can see, we are big fans of Evan “Doc” Shaner here at 5 Minute Marvels. The dude is a rising star with a great style and a wild imagination. His latest creation is Red Clay, whose adventures are chronicled in strip form at www.RedClayComics.com
While only a few strips in, I must confess to loving the 70s heavies Evan has created to foil our hero — Mop Top and Turtleneck. So, I was compelled to draw.
Don’t fall out of your chair or anything, but while Grace was away at Girl Scouts, Cate wanted to bust of the DC Encyclopedia and draw. She chose Black Canary and set to work. “This is the best I can do!” she exclaimed with a sonic scream of her own. I love the pigtails on Dinah.
