"Come Along Pond"
16 X 20 in.
Gouache, Marker, and Mixed Media on Arches Watercolor Board
a.k.a. The Life and Times of Amy Pond
The commission I've spent the last 5 months working on. Months 1-3: Drawing. Month 4: Inking. Month 5: Painting.
The guy asks for a commission with The Doctor, Amy, this quote, and the TARDIS. I need to work on telling my brain to stop being so goddamned ambitious. But, I had the idea, and I wanted to run with it. The idea sprang from the quote, and I really wanted to capture all the good and bad things that came with being a companion for Amy.
My client is wheelchair bound, and as far as I know, has been his entire life. When I delivered his finished commission to his this morning, he was so happy. He told me that this quote meant so much to him, and that when he was watching Doctor Who, he felt he too could run with The Doctor.
I think we all feel like that. This show has the power to make us all feel that.
I also want to give credit where credit is due and say that I used this image: fav.me/d2ogk15
