Ripley & Hicks Exterminators

Ripley and Hicks, for when its not just another bug hunt.
If Ripley and Hicks had survived the journey home from LV426 I like to think they would have set up in business. After all they both had extensive experience of dealing with unwanted visitors. Hicks had certainly been on a few bug hunts before. And despite every paycheck being a fortune in the corps, I'm sure he would have preferred to work for himself after his latest experience of someone else being in command. Besides they always have the ultimate backup plan. Take off and nuke the whole site from orbit. Its the only way to be sure.

I wanted to make this one into a bit of an old fashioned logo. I'm beginning to think I have a bit of a thing for victorian style logo design, so it got out the pencil and started working on a nice chunky type treatment and it sort of struck me that the texture and pattern would be the thing to make this work properly. So a bit of H.R. Giger research later, I came up with some ideas of how to give it that extra-terrestrial edge that it needed.

This one is (surprisingly) available on Redbubble and Society6 right now with all the details available on the Doodle Dojo Store. Don't forget to stop by my Facebook page to keep up with my latest designs and sketches.

Anti-Grav Olympics 2074

Anti-grav Olympics
Now that Doctor Who is on a break until November I thought I'd better post up some more Who designs. This one is right back to episode one, 'The Bells of St. John'. Quite often the Doctor mentions things that don't make it into the show and this one just leapt out at me and said make me into a logo. So I did. He may have come last but it was probably because he had to take a detour to save the world or something. You know how it is.

As always this one is available at Redbubble and Society6. Check out the Doodle Dojo Store for more info.

Doodle Dojo Etsy Shop

Doctor Who Villains. Available in the Doodle Dojo Etsy Store.
I've been doing a lot of actual proper sketches lately (on paper and everything!). So rather than cluttering up my house, which already contains lots of my drawings, I thought I would offer them to you. So I've opened the Doodle Dojo Etsy store. This is my opening selection, as you can see I'm in a bit of a Doctor Who mood right now. I did have a Boba Fett picture up there too but its already sold so I won't bother to show that to you guys.

All these sketches are on nice thick A5 cartridge paper and hand drawn by me with a rather nice India Ink brush marker. I will be adding more as I get time to do them and of course if people show an interest in owning them!
