50th anniversary is coming, ants start to crawl under my skin whenever I think of it and to settle them for at least a bit, here's a miniature book inspired by "Doctor Who"
1.8 cm tall (0' 7" inch) and 1.4 cm wide (0' 55" inch), this books is a mix of perfect bound and hardcovers and is inspired by River Song's diary. Pages are tea dyed and some appear dirty or falling off. It's all on purpose and for the sake of authentic look.
Both drawings and binding are done from scratch, by me (of course). Book is filled with random hand drawn pages with few different enemies from the series, TARDIS and sonic screwdriver. There's some writings and part of it is printed out of free stock and my own and even my grandfather's handwriting out of old letters. Some of it is hand written and all small drawings (like arrows and similar stuff) are hand drawn. Also, most importantly, book includes the portraits of every Doctor so far, hand drawn with graphite pencil, mechanical pencil and gel pen.
Portraits are actually done partially, over few years...they weren't meant to be in the book, as at first I've done miniature portraits of first three Doctor, in almost caricature style, for a friend, who collected them. Then, few years back, again for a friend, I've done 4th and 6th Doctor, which discouraged me completely (easy to see why, I believe). I left it all in the drawer and forgot about it. Last year, a friend and a fan of Paul McGann (8th for those who aren't familiar) asked me to try and make his portrait. I did and liked how it looked like, so made another one for my "collection", determined to make the whole "set" when I find time. Well, finding the time was not so easy, so across few months, I did 5th and 7th and then had to pause for a while. Finally, at the beginning of this year, I finished 9th and two months back, 10th and 11th. Phew.
Heh, a long work for such a tiny book. Hope you like it, especially my fellow fans
