So I’m more than enjoying the new series of Doctor Who. There’s been a couple of dud moments but nothing like the rollercoaster of quality that the past four series were and, so far, it feels like a story being told by someone (to mix the metaphors) with very safe hands.
So, in the back of my mind are the two Dr Who stories that I’ve always wanted to write and, since I’ve got to set myself a project on the iPad to keep my brain ticking over, I feel I may pick one of those and illustrate it… Maybe. I’ve been asked a couple of times what the next project will be and that, I think, is it. To begin with I’ve started to draw out some doodles and for the lunchtime just gone, I thought I’d have a bash at a Doctor doodle.
And, for the first time it’s a picture that’s done what I wanted on the bigger version of my favourite art app. Brushes on the iPod touch I felt as if I’d, if not mastered, then had a high level of confidence in. Brushes on the iPad pretty much tore me down to the beginning, or at least the foundation stones. This is the first picture, number 64 my untitled library tells me, that I can point to and say it didn’t fight me throughout. Hurrah.
More to come, I think, although I’ve got a fair amount of other stuff to sort through as well.
