Doctor Who - Four to Doomsday.

Background plate for BBC Audio's audiobook CD and download. Extensively remastered from an original on-spec painting (1985). The new repeating pattern was delivered to BBC Audio, who combined it with a new scan of Alister Pearson's artwork for the reprint of this title (Virgin Publishing / Target Books 1991). The deep red colour-cast is a nod to the red background for the novelisation's first edition (WH Allen & Co / Target Books 1983).

Doctor Who - Target Books Exhibition (unofficial poster iconic).

A special illustration commissioned by Alister Pearson to tie in with an exhibition of Target book cover illustrations, hosted at the Cartoon Museum in London in spring 2016. The illustration brings together the first and seventh Doctors featured in the Target Books series of novelisations (1973-94), taken from Alister's covers for The Target Book (Telos Publishing 2007) and Doctor Who - Survival (Virgin Publishing / Target Books 1990), one of the last novelisations. Although the artwork was commissioned as an unofficial poster for the exhibition, it also features on the dedication page of the 2016 hardback edition of The Target Book and accompanies an article about the exhibition in Doctor Who Magazine issue 499.

Exclusive print for Fantom Films signing event. Extensively remastered from the VHS artwork (BBC Video 1993), first edition novelisation artwork for Doctor Who - The Ultimate Foe (WH Allen & Co / Target Books 1988) and Doctor Who - Mindwarp (BBC Audiobooks 2013, based on updated artwork for the 1989 novelisation) with processed creative commons photography from the Hubble Telescope.

Doctor Who - The Key to Time.

Exclusive print for Fantom Films signing event. Remastered from two archive prints of an unused cover illustration for a proposed reprint of a non-fiction book by Peter Haining. The illustration was subsequently updated with the seventh and eighth Doctors and auctioned for charity. The challenge with this job was to add the extra Doctors from the lower quality print to the higher quality version, and add extra detail to the top and sides so it could be formatted to A4.

Doctor Who - Evolution.

Exclusive, one-off signed print for raffling at an event in May 2017. Remastered from the first edition artwork for Evolution (Doctor Who - The Missing Adventures, Virgin Publishing 1994). This was a simple job to remove the artist's initials and some unwanted detail from the right hand side, apply some digital polish to remove dust and scratches and extend the clean burgundy background on either side. Not strictly an Old Fusion project as we didn't add anything new to it, but it was a nice remastering gig and a pleasure to work on such a gorgeous portrait of my childhood heroes.
