"… She wasn’t supposed to be looking at the vortex manipulator - originally she was walking past the movie posters for the two Peter Cushing movies. In my head, in the Doctor’s universe those films exist and are a great source of embarrassment to him. Probably Ian and Barbara sold the film rights, after their attendance record got them sacked from Coal Hill School… Later U.N.I.T. bought all the prints of the films, and suppressed them. You see? The fan brain? I’m even trying to figure out the Cushing Doctor!

Sadly, though, we couldn’t afford the rights to the posters! You may now enjoy a moment of spinning rage at Doctor Who's budget and the fact that this show would have to pay for those posters at all - welcome to my life.”

Joe Colquhoun - Charley’s War Details

I’m currently putting together a portfolio of original art pages for French publisher Delirium as a promotional device to support their exhibition of Charley’s War art in Meaux later this year.

It’s the first time the pages will be reproduced outside of the standard black and white line art format used in the collected editions. The portfolio will be full-sized, on high-quality textured paper.

It’s amazing just how much detail from Joe’s originals is lost during the transfer to line art.

Above are some examples of his pencil and brush work from a single page, originally published in Battle Action in March 1980, and currently residing in the Cartoon Museum, London.

"This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven’t you heard? Rick is dead! The People’s Poet is dead!"
