Ditmar Nom!

Dalek postcards

I’m really pleased that my Dalek postcards, drawn and printed for the 2007 Asif! Donation Drive, have been nominated for a Australian Ditmar Award, in the Fan Art Category.

Now, given there’s only one other nomination in the category, I doubt that this was the most competitive of categories. Indeed, I suspect it’s the least competitive! However, it’s still really nice to know that other people have liked the Dalek enough to nominate him. He says: “Thanks!” 🙂

The Ditmars will be awarded in just over a months time at Swancon, WA’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. Interestingly, I’d actually planned to have the Dalek debut *at* this Swancon – as one of my entries in the Art Show. But then girliejones began running the Donation Drive, I thought ‘Dalek!!’, and the rest is history. However, the Dalek wasn’t the only Doctor Who inspired art I was planning for Swancon 2008. In fact, it seemed only appropriate to concentrate on a Doctor Who theme, given that Rob Shearman (a Doctor Who scriptwriter) will be a guest, and that a special photographic retrospective of 70 years of science fiction at the BBC will be exhibited (I’m really looking forward to this). So I guess anyone who is interested in viewing or, indeed, owning the Dalek or other Doctor Who related art, should definitely swing by the Swancon Art Show and see what I’ve come up with!

And Swancon 2009? Well that’s another story entirely.

(I’ll keep you posted on that one :-))

    They look great in fan like that. The more Daleks the merrier!

    Cool! 🙂 And much coolness about the SpecFic Snapshot nomination as well. You guys did so much work on that, in such a short span of time. You should be nominated for something! Crossing fingers that you’ll win.

    Yeah – I was very proud of what we achieved with the snapshot. So many interviews!
