The Year Of Drawing Adventurously – Week 27: Robotic

Following the chart to 52 drawings this year.

As a big science fiction fan, I could have chosen any number of favorite robots (or androids) but I chose to draw a Dalek from Doctor Who. When I was a kid, I watched Tom Baker’s Doctor face off against these evil creatures – a living being controls the mechanical body – and was absolutely terrified by them. For those of you unfamiliar with Doctor Who, I realize how silly that must seem. What’s so scary about a canister vacuum with a couple of plungers attached, right? Despite their rather ridiculous appearance,  only the Daleks threaten the very existence of the universe! Here is my mine:

T is for TARDIS #atozchallenge

In the TARDIS, I will hide
And hope The Doctor lets me ride
Through space and time
The ship sublime
That I know is bigger on the inside

Ok, ok, I know I said my dream job was to be a Bryan Ferry back-up singer… I did tell you guys that right? Well, forget it. My dream job is to be The Doctor’s companion! Seriously, how could anyone resist? The entire universe at your fingertips, all the moments of history available to visit. Which one would you pick? You wouldn’t have to! You could visit them all. I do have one stipulation for this adventure… I’m going with the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)!  There he is with his sonic screwdriver, looking all adorable.Unknown



Also, don’t tell me this isn’t the best TV theme song EVER!
