I had a lot of fun drawing Matt Smith in a fez with Grace this week … so I decided to draw some of my other favorite Timelords and their haberdashery — William Hartnell in his original fur cap from the very first eppy of Doctor Who, Patrick Troughton’s toboggan from Fury from the Deep (I LOVE that episode) and Tom Baker’s off again, on again cowboy hat/fedora. I know I should draw Sylvester McCoy in his bowler … but I just don’t like that era of Who. Sorry, Sly lovers.
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.
Enjoy! And, if you love Doctor Who art, head over to www.ComicTWART.com and Ancient and Forever from our friend, Jason Garrattley.
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.
