Dimensions: approx 12"x13" pencil on artists board.
I was asked to produce a piece of artwork which combined elements of the Doctor Who story 'Castrovalva' with the artwork which inspired it.
Architecture isn't my strong point, nevertheless, I enjoyed the challenge this piece presented, not least trying to avoid smudging the pencil!
I've always loved getting lost in Escher's artwork. He enjoyed playing around with mathematics and the norm in what we perceive as the physical world. He liked to "deliberately confuse two and three dimensions, the plane and the space, or to poke fun at gravity", with often beautiful, eye catching results.
'Castrovalva' was Peter Davison's first story as The Doctor. It was broadcast on BBC1, 1982.
