So funny story....this was a piece that I created about a year or so ago as an homage to two of my favorite things, Doctor Who, and Dr. Seuss. Specifically the episode "The Empty Child" written by current show runner Steven Moffat.
Earlier this summer, at the North American Discworld Convention Art Show, writer Neil Gaimen, surprised everyone by showing up and signing artwork and prizes to be auctioned for charity later that night. (Incidentally he wrote my favorite episode of the Matt Smith's current run on the show called "The Doctor's Wife". Yes I am a GEEK. What of it?
Now I am a bit fuzzy on details from this point on...but as I understand it, somehow he saw a small thumbnail of this image and openly professed his love for it to the coordinator of the art show. Apparently it's his favorite episode too. He wanted very much to sign the print and have it auctioned as part of the lot of work that was going up that night. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances I had been unable to get my work to the show, and the actual print was not there.
Erin Prindiville the show coordinator however promised him a copy, called me, and I mailed her two ASAP. One for Neil, and one for her, as a thank you for not only getting a copy of this to Neil through his entourage, but also for giving me the coolest 6 Degrees of Doctor Who story ever.
Just thought I would share. :)
I hope all is well with you guys, and will be updating the upcoming show calendar this week. Have a great night!
