I've never met writer Tommy Donbavand , but we have one thing in common , we've both been treated for throat/neck cancer at the Rosemere Cancer Foundation , at Fullwood , Preston. We both went through 6 weeks of gruelling chemo and radiation therapy before being sent home to recuperate. I've walked in Tommy's shoes , so know exactly what he went through.But things took a different turn for him when it was found he now has lung cancer.

I can't imagine how bad that blow must feel.

So when Paul Ebbs asked Dr Who artist Martin Geraghty and playwright Elton Townsend Jones , plus myself to contribute to a 600 page ebook he was putting together to help Tommy , we jumped at the chance. If you're a fan of my work there are 5 new exclusive Dr Who illustrations in there , plus the cover as well as gorgeous art from Martin and brilliant photos from Elton and lots of words from Paul.Lots of  wonderful words.

My first published Dr Who art was for a story written by Andy Lane. I was commissioned by Gary Russell for the 1995 Yearbook. Gary didn't feel my style appropriate for the comic strip at the time but wanted to use me somewhere and the story 'It's only a Game' was gratefully received by me.I drew the b/w artwork on hot press watercolour paper before adding very simple colour washes of liquid watercolour.It was the precursor of the technique I was to use extensively on The Cybermen which I was offered not long after I delivered this art.

My latest Dr Who illustration was the cover for the Shada Animation Steel Book. It's still only a game.

Since the BBC has released the news that the missing parts of Shada have been newly animated I want to briefly explain my involvement for curious minds. I was hired late last year as head colourist on the production which meant I oversaw all colour aspects of the show specifically the characters and lighting options. In April I was additionally hired as lead storyboard artist and worked for 6 weeks with producer Charles Norton on all the big sequences before starting colour work. The rest of the boards were done by various hands including lead character designer Martin Geraghty. Finally I created the cover for the steelbook which you'll perhaps of seen in the announcement but if not it's below. There's also another back cover for the card sleeve that features the Doctor and Romana in a punt. I'm not going to answer any in-depth questions yet but hope that quells any initial questions. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers.
