I’ve been wondering how to describe the experience of the live stream this weekend. I don’t think I really can put into words the emotions I went through.
For those coming to this unsure what I’m referring to, I spent Saturday drawing for fourteen hours, drawing Doctor who characters live on Twitch to raise money for FareShare UK. Once it was over, I’ve complied a print that will be auctioned off to add to the final cost and so far, with a sale of smaller digital copies we’ve hit 1,697.78 dollars. (Don’t ask why it’s in dollars, it’s my balls up but it’s money, it still counts!)
I'll be drawing A-Z things you suggest for Doctor Who Alphabet on Sunday 25th @ 11am, with all your donations going to @FareShareUK with some special guests moderating the chatbox throughout the day.
You will get to vote on your suggestions for the alphabet in the stream so stay tuned in to make sure your favourite suggestions get chosen!
At the end the drawings will be included in a large print which will be auctioned off as a phyiscal print which I will get printed and sent to the highest bidder. A digital copy will be made available to purchase for a donation another time. The aim is to atleast hit $125 dollars which gives a total of 500 meals to hungry children in the UK.

Happy Audio Publishing day!
I’m already overwhelmed that people seem to like my story and I’m so so thankful to have the opportunity to be involved with TLV
Thank you so much to everyone who’s been involved with the production!
So to celebrate I fancied drawing Delgado from my short trip...and I promised Simon I would draw his cover too so I made these (they're not official.)

So I was finally able to announce this joyous news on Wednesday. I've written something for the Time Lord Victorious Project for Big Finish, and not just any old something...
Who knew a text would result in my writing for the first tv incarnation of the Master - as played by Roger Delgado!
My short story is in a set with the wonderful Simon Guerrier, as part of the new ambitious Big Finish Project Time Lord Victorious. Here's the blurb:
"The Master wants to plunder one of the most secure vaults in the universe, the Repository. He's got a plan, and a deadly new weapon to assist him. However, as the Master quicky discovers, getting in might be easy, but getting away with it might cost him everything."
I still can't quite believe I've been asked to write anything for this project, and I'm incredibly grateful for the support of the Big Finish crew for putting their faith in me.
Master Thief and Lesser Evils will be released in October 2020

I can't talk about much at the moment regards work as it's all very hush hush for the next few weeks. However, I can tell you that if you want to hear me babble about one of my favourite historicals, The Aztecs, you can find a podcast where I do so here:
It's been a very stressful time recently, for all of us. Friends and family I know are either putting themselves on the line to fight a virus we never thought would touch our daily lives - others jobless, fearful of their futures.
And the wonderful Emily Cook led a campaign of joy and positivity, gathering fans of Doctor Who around the world to rewatch episodes we love and adore. She's brought old showrunners, directors, writers, creatives, actors and all into the fray giving us new insight and new stories about a world we love to escape too.
Today, I can now reveal my hand in it in this magic.
I was given the honour to work on a small intimate project: a new short story by Steven Moffat. Illustrations were needed and of anyone she could have picked Emily asked me. Deadlines be damned, how could I possibly say no?
Below is my work for the Raggedy Doctor, turned around in less than 24 hours and I had the opportunity to work with people I never dreamt I would. Somebody pinch me!
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed working on it. The link to the video is here:
I've been invited very recently on a few podcasts about the current Doctor Who series which has been pretty exciting. I share ideas on different stories, and in the case of Who & Company share my love of my other favourite TV show - The Librarians.
It was wonderful to be invited on and if you fancy a listen, the links are down below!
