Ace & 7th Doctor

7th Doctor_AceJust in time for Pensacon, the 7th Doctor print now with Ace!


That’s a lot of Doctor’s (and companions)

Titan_Tshirt_CompanionsHere’s the t-shirt artwork I did for Titan Merchandising and first sold at SDCC. All the Doctor’s and almost all the companions! Whew, it was A LOT to reference! I might have to find time to add in those missing companions though. Have a great weekend!

3rd Doctor Cover

Here’s my cover for the 3rd Doctor mini-series from Titan Comics!

Of course, being able to include Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant and his faithful car, Bessie made working on this piece all that more fun. Cheers!

2nd Doctor & TARDIS

2th Doctor_kellyyatesThe 2nd Doctor and his TARDIS! I was inspired to put them in a tunnel after watching The Web of Fear. Although, I’ll probably go back and add Jamie McCrimmon to a version since Frazier Hines thought (threated me) that it might be a wonderful idea.




I know a lot of my energy is going towards Thought Bubble, but there’s no way I can forget about Dragon Con where I’ll be spending my Labor Day weekend.

Drop by the new home of the Comic & Pop Artist Alley on the 3rd floor of the Americasmart, I’ll be at table 30H.

I’ll also be on 2 panels this year along with the wonderful Alan Siler. Hope to see you there!

Panel 1 – Doctor Who Classics (Time: Fri 05:30 pm Location: Athens – Sheraton)
Panel 2 – Doctor Who Spinoffs (Time: Sat 08:30 pm Location: Athens – Sheraton)
