Companion sketch #88: Three blondes from the Tenth Doctor’s era who weren’t Rose… Heather McCrimmon (from the Doctor Who Adventures comics), Jenny and Jackie Tyler. 
By the way, the identity of yesterday’s “mystery companions” were Catherine Broome (from the 7th Doctor novella “Companion Piece”) and the Graak (from 90s video game “Destiny of the Doctors”).  Congrats to Dave Twohey, the only person who correctly guessed both. :)

Companion sketch #87: This time it’s… MYSTERY COMPANIONS!  
Seriously, if you can I.D. both of these without the internet, give yourself a bag of invisible jelly babies- you’ve earned it. ;)

Companion sketch #83: Compassion- 8th Doctor companion, “stroppy redhead” and human TARDIS.
The only thing approaching official art for her is a tiny illustration in one of the Faction Paradox spinoff books, but I did my best to match that and some sparse bits of desciption from the EDAs: http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120611111318/factionparadox/images/5/57/Compassion_bookofwar.jpg
 I notice some people online have “cast” her as Ruth Wilson, so that influenced the drawing a bit too (still think she’d make an amazing Doctor).
That’s the EDA companions wrapped (and all the 8th Doctor companions, come to think of it).  Though I haven’t posted everything I’ve finished yet, this project’s damned near finished (I’ve only got four left to draw at the moment).

Sorry to be all hard-sellin’ and self-promotional here, but….

ART SALE ALERT- Money’s tight lately, so I’ve marked down all my original art till December- including published pieces from GODZILLA, CHEW, BUCKAROO BANZAI, CHAMPION MAGAZINE and IRIS WILDTHYME, plus a lot of my most famous Doctor Who fan pieces.

Also, while this sale lasts, I’ll be throwing in a bonus surprise piece of full-blown 11x17 artwork (of related subject matter when possible) with each order. AND you get two free color prints of your choice from some old portfolio samples I have (including most of my better-known pieces- ask for availability, but I only have a few of most). I don’t usually offer prints of my work, so here’s a rare chance to score some.  To top it all off, multiple purchases get a 20% discount.

Art and prices available here: http://www.comicartfans.com/galleryroom.asp?gsub=157657

Okay, we now rejoin the free art posts where I don’t try to guilt ya into buying stuff.  Enjoy. ;)

What's your opinion on there being "fake" and "real" fans/nerds?

neil-gaiman:

Until I meet any obviously fake human beings — and I think they’d have to be held together with glue, or have the eyes painted on, or really be dolls or slugs or something — I think all people, not to mention fans, nerds, geeks and suchlike are real.

Some people haven’t read/seen/done as much as others. Some people haven’t been around as long. Some people wear T-shirts without knowing everything about what the T-shirt represents. But they are still real, and (and this is the important bit) everybody starts somewhere

People at my signings sometimes tell me, apologetically, that they aren’t real fans, they’ve only read one book or a single comic, not like the people who know every obscure reference I make and win quizzes on my life and times that I would probably fail. And I tell them I’m glad they read the book. And I am.

So very true- especially the “everybody starts somewhere” bit.
