A Brit a Day [#1236]

Some days, I don’t need to say anything here on this blog–the pictures do all the talking.

Matt Smith still has some surprises in store for us with the doctor’s Christmas special.  See a fun gallery of behind-the-scenes shots here:

A Brit a Day [#1200]

Today is ABAD’s 1200th post, and more importantly, my elder child’s first day of college.  A couple of years ago, she cosplayed as Idris, the ‘Doctor’s Wife’, for Comic-con–she was the best Idris anyone had ever seen.  To commemorate, here’s some Doctor Who 50th anniversary art from this year’s Comic-con program.

The best and the worst thing about being a Doctor Who fan right now:  it hurts a bit.

I love this artist I just found on the Japanese artists’ site pixiv, Shimizu.  I love everything about their style right down to the patina on the sketchbook.  You’ll love it too, especially if you are a fan of Top Gear, Doctor Who, Sherlock…I saw at least one great sketch of Tom Hiddleston as well.  Check it out–Shimizu’s work can be found here–

I’m not sure how far you can get without creating an account.  I did, and it was worth it.

[The art is not mine.  I found it on Tumblr.]

Today is my daughter’s 18th birthday.  I remember what an influence the book ‘The Little Prince’ was for me around that age.  Plus, my daughter loves the history of Europe in the second world war, and the book is essentially a study of the heart of an exiled poet.  Says Wikipedia,

Saint-ExupĂ©ry, a laureate of several of France’s highest literary awards and a reserve military pilot at the start of the Second World War, wrote and illustrated the manuscript while exiled in the United States after the Fall of France. He had travelled there on a personal mission to persuade its government to quickly enter the war against Nazi Germany. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health he produced almost half of the writings he would be remembered for, including a tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love and loss, in the form of a young prince fallen to Earth.

I will make sure she reads it.  But for today’s post, what could be a more fitting piece of fan art than The Doctor as The Little Prince?

Oh, Matt. My heart is breaking a little bit each day, I’m going to miss him so much.  I’ve never wanted so much to stall the coming of Christmas.

I met the incredible Alicexz at Anime Expo last week!  I think this may be my favorite thing that she’s ever done, and it just happens to be of Matt Smith.

I bought a print of this beauty below directly from her, thereby circumnavigating the BBC who’ve licensed it! Let’s hear it for negating the middle man!

Not happy about My Doctor retiring, but I wish him all the best.
