Back in 2000, I was asked by Big Finish to paint a cover for the first Bernice Summerfield publication - a selection of short stories. Three more covers followed after that, then the format was changed and Adrian Salmon took over as cover artist for both the book and audio CD covers.
As a result, I have a little mention in Big Finish's new hardback book of Bernice Summerfield: The Inside Story. :)
Written by Simon Guerrier, the book has 320 illustrated pages and more than 300,000 words. It chronicles the creation of former Doctor Who companion Bernice Summerfield, by Paul Cornell (Benny made her first appeared in the Doctor Who New Adventures release Love and War), and her ongoing development through a vast range of books and audios(in which she is played by Lisa Bowerman).
Didn't manage to get much drawing done while I was away. Tried to relax instead, which is hard to do when you're used to being busy, busy, busy all the time!
Was nice being by the sea and soaking up the sun for a bit, and getting away from Monsoon Manchester! :) Luckily there are a few coastal areas in this country, which don't have rain all through the summer!
The above sketch was done at Runswick Bay on the north east coast, north of Whitby.
