Dr. Who image 7 "The Time Meddler"
This image is adapted from one of the last Who series that William Hartnell played in. The time frame is 1066 AD, just before the Battle of Hastings and the Norman Conquest. A rogue Time Lord, disguised as a monk, is causing trouble on Earth, interfering with the time stream and introducing non-period technology like the light bulb he holds at the top left corner.
I experimented with pen strokes on this drawing, using them a bit more loosely like some of the early 20th century pulp or society illustrators. Hartnell is at center.
Black ink on illustration board, 5 1/2" x 6", Summer 1981.
