Happy birthday, media pioneer Clare Boothe Luce! Celebrate with her magnificent letter to her 18-year-old daughter.
But of course I needed to make it super difficult for myself so I decided to mix things up a bit by:
- Redraw all the characters so that everyone is uniform and front on
- Include the Doctors from all of the series
- Make the game more accessible as a Guess Who game for non-Whovians (i.e. make sure there’s more than two of each of the following: male, female, hat, tie, glasses, and other typical Guess Who questions)
- Try to make the cards look as close to the original cards as possible
- Do all of this by said friend’s birthday
Spoiler: I didn’t finish this by my friend’s birthday. Or by Christmas. It was more of an early Valentines/late birthday/Christmas gift in the end, but it was all worth it.
I might post some better photos of the finished product later, but for now these camera phone shots will suffice. Happy late Birthday/Christmas/early Valentines, Ness!
This is amazing! You’re a great illustrator :)
Hey Doctor, do you want to build a snowman?
I want it!

How I spent the last few days of 2013 & early hours of 2014. Epic.
I have been considering my new year’s resolutions this week.
2013 has been an odd duck of a year. After being in something of a limbo work-wise, it has now begun to move into a new direction with new challenges which will hopefully help me to grow my career productively.
I love goal setting and last year I didn’t have clear ones so I am committing this year’s resolutions to blog to help me remember them and track their progress.
1. Blog more.
I get a lot of joy from writing and taking time to reflect on the creative things I’ve done has always been a good way of focussing my energy.
2. Spill less.
At the request of a friend who has been on the receiving end of a couple of glasses of red wine.
3. Dress as if I will be pinning my outfit.
I am moving house for the 4th time in 3 years. It’s time to upgrade the wardrobe, dress for success and find some pieces that reflect my personality. I’ve always veered between conservative at work and kooky in private and I want to consolidate my look for greater confidence.
4. Watch more films
I can never watch too many films.
5. Spend more time with my sisters.
6. See more of the UK.
I love travel, and I need to make more of an effort to appreciate the places that aren’t so far away.
7. Use my bike
Two things I have loved doing in the past but not actually done extensively for far too long.
Here’s hoping 2014 will be epic!
