How Much Is Doctor Who’s TARDIS Worth?

6 Mar

If I had a dollar every time someone asked me what a TARDIS was… well you know the rest. But we know as proud Doctor Who fans, that it’s our duty to spread the good word of the doctor, his companions and travels. Doctor Who is sacred and priceless, but did you ever wonder how much an actual TARDIS would cost? The fine folks over at Movoto took a stab at its estimated price and it looks like I need to start saving up!

Etsy Crush of the Week: Tom Kurzanski’s Doctor Who Valentine’s Day Cards

14 Feb

doctor who valentines day cards tom kurzanski

I love my Doctor Who Valentine’s Day cards as much as Rose loves Ten! Okay… that may be a bit extreme, but I do like them a whole lot! The card stock is thick and they are printed in great quality. I like that Tom’s cards are a mix of some of the older characters like Daleks and Cybermen as well as new ones like Oswin and the Silence. These V-day cards are a great way to whisper sweet nothing’s to your favorite Doctor Who fan!

Interview with Tom Kurzanski:

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Tom KurzanskiI’m an illustrator and designer based out of Centennial, Colorado – a Navy brat whose time growing up was spent traveling along a dotted map line that Indiana Jones would be proud of. Now I’m content to doodle the days away creating comics, parody art, and t-shirts alongside my fiancé, Annie, and our pup, Lucy.

How long have you been illustrating?

Since I was three. My dad sent me a simple drawing of a Knight while he was away on a ship, and I took it upon myself to flip it over and do my own version. This led to creating my own comics and stories under the kitchen table. I attribute my creativity to my sister, who shoved a crayon up my nose on a long car trip, lodging it snugly against my brain.

How would you describe your artistic style?

Transformative and effervescent, with subtle earthy notes… or maybe fluid, cartoonish jokery.

Favorite artists?Doctor Who Valentines Day Cards by Tom Kurzanski

Tough question to answer, as there are so many artists I love the work of – many of them comic artists. Brian Hurtt, Les McClaine, Kazu Kibuishi, Darwyn Cooke, Roger Langridge, TaraMcPherson, Linda Medley, Mike Allred, Philip Bond, D’Israeli, Eduardo Risso, Tony Millionaire, John Currin… I could go on for ages.

Since you’re a fellow Doctor Who fan I’ve got to ask, who is your favorite doctor and favorite companion?

My favorite Doctor remains the seventh. While I love the Doctors who have come since, Sylvester McCoy introduced me to Doctor Who during my three-year stay in the UK. His dark clown with the trademark umbrella will always hold a special place in my heart. I had a crush on his sidekick, Ace, but as a companion Rory Williams cannot be beat.

Tom Baker/4 had the scarf and Matt Smith/11 has the bow tie. What would your signature item be if you were the Doctor?

A full, glorious beard. Out of which I would pull various objects, as needed.

What else are you a fanboy for?

Venture Brothers, Futurama, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Supernatural, Twin Peaks, the Parker books, Parks & Rec, Community, Nerdist, the Thrilling Adventure Hour, D&D, and Paul F. Tompkins.

Doctor Who Valentines Day Cards by Tom Kurzanski 2If you were on a deserted island what would video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?

Video game– Dark Souls (so I could finally get around to playing it)

Book– Saul Bass: A Life in Film and Design (I never get tired of drooling over his work)

Movie—Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure

TV Show—Secret Agent, a.k.a Danger Man (I love re-watching it when I can, and there are a million episodes)

Doctor Who Street Art

13 Aug

I’ve always had a love and appreciate for street art and artists whether its Banksy, Shepard Fairey or Space Invader. To me, street art is made specifically for the people. Not just art snobs or critics, but the every day person. Which, in my eyes, gives it more authenticity. Now of course I have a deep love for museums and all types of art whether they are high or low brow. But street art is one of my favorites because it can be made by anybody for everybody.

You all are probably aware that Doctor Who is my favorite thing in all of time and space. So it should come to no surprise how much I adore Doctor Who street art. One big difference between me and the show is if I saw “Bad Wolf” spray painted on the side of a building I’d be excited rather than terrified.

Etsy Crush of the Week & Giveaway- Beth Yates’ Adorable British Fandom Bookmarks

30 Apr

I’m a fan of many things, two of them being extremely cute things and print books. So it should come as no surprise that I am a big fan of Beth Yates’ bookmarks. She used her graphic design talents to bestow charming bookmarks upon the world in the form of our favorite British fandoms. I’m one of those people who does not want to buy an e-reader (yet), so there are plenty of books that I’m reading that will become a temporary home for the Doctor, Ron and Sherlock bookmarks. Although, carrying around some books will surely give me scoliosis (I’m looking at you A Dance with Dragons), I do it for the love of print. Now my only problem is, how will I get any reading done when I’ll be too busy staring at the bookmark?! Long live print and very cute bookmarks to put them in!

Girl Gone Geek Interview with Beth Yates (giveaway below)

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Beth: Well I’m a Graphic Design student, currently coming up to the end of my second year at university. I live just outside Leeds and I’ve always been a total geek. I love videogames, movies, anything to do with fantasy, superheroes and the like. I also love reading, hence the abundance of bookmarks.

How long have you been designing?

Beth: Well I’ve always been creative; I was always drawing and doodling through school. I really started to get into drawing and design around age 15 – inspired by other fandoms; I was particularly into Kingdom Hearts at the time. It’s only in the last couple of years though that I really started to get into serious design and its completely taken over my life (in the best possible way). I just get the most amazing buzz from designing and creating things, and I’m hopefully going to be able to turn this in to a fully-fledged career.

Why did you decide to make an Etsy shop?

Beth: I’ve always made things for myself and thought it would be cool to share the stuff I make with others, see what they thought. It’s been a great platform to get feedback on my designs, and its also helping to pay my way through university, which is brilliant!

So I think it’s safe to say that you’re pro-print books since your adorable bookmarks don’t work on Kindles, right? What are your feelings on these e-readers in general? Do you think they will eventually make print books obsolete? 

Beth: I don’t think print is ever going to be obsolete, there’s just something about the experience of picking up a book, the feel and smell of the pages, the whole experience is so much more than the printed words. I’m a total gadget nut, but there’s so much about our lives today that’s completely ephemeral; music, photos, even money – its all digital and so transient, there’s a physicality and realness to a book that for me you just cant beat.

Since you’re a fellow Whovian I have to ask, who is your favorite doctor and favorite companion?

Beth: Oh its so hard to pick, I just love the whole program. I think it’d probably have to be Tennant and Catherine Tate as Donna. I didn’t really get into Who till Tennant took over (now I’m completely obsessed) and Donna was just brilliant! The chemistry they had was so entertaining to watch. Saying that I really love the new series too! Fishfingers and custard all the way!

What Hogwarts house would the sorting hat put you in and why?

Beth: I got sorted on Pottermore into Gryffindor! Twice! (I wanted to see if it was a random generator or not) I actually squealed. I think it’s quite accurate really, although I’ve always been quite academic I’ve got a quite strong sense of justice. I see and read so many instances of people being wronged and it really makes me want to just go out and do something about it. There’s also nothing more important to me than my friends, I love spending every day surrounded by such fun and brilliant people.

What are your other favorite fandom’s?

Beth: I absolutely love Sherlock and Merlin. They’re the main two, but I’m also a big fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, so many different video game franchises (old and new), though I don’t really take part in the online fandoms, I tend to just geek out with my mates.

If you were on a deserted island what would video game, book, movie, TV show would you bring?

Beth: I would have to bring the whole Monkey island series, the whole Harry Potter series, Megamind and all the series of Merlin.

Where do you live on the Internet? 

Beth: You can find me on Etsy and tumblr :D feel free to drop me message anytime, any requests for new bookmark sets are most welcome!

Doctor Who Cosplay at NYCC

14 Nov

Even though New York Comic Con was weeks ago but it’s never too late to see some Doctor Who cosplay amirite?! This was actually my first time cosplaying ever! It was so much fun, I was a femme Eleven! I ended up stumbling across this massive Whovian cosplay photo op meetup. I asked to take a picture with an Amy and a girl told me that at 1pm we’d have all the Doctor Who cosplayers (they could find) meetup for a huge group picture. So of course until 1pm came along we still took dozens of pictures while we waited. Enjoy the pictures!

Here are a few of my favs!

My femme Matt Smith/Eleven cosplay!
