This is a drawing I did on my tablet from the fifth UNIT audio series from Big Finish, UNIT Encounters.
Osgood is at a New Science conference as a representative of UNIT, where she encounters her old mentor, Professor Torrence. Torrence invites her back to his lab and things go sour when Torrence shows her a Sontaran clone, not grown in a Sontaran pod. She is taken prisoner and forced to help Torrence build an army of Sontarans, but when UNIT come to investigate, she becomes a hostage.
This is from when Osgood becomes a hostage and Torrence says ‘Stand up Osgood, you’ve just been elevated to the status of hostage’
That is right, I have my books!
My latest from the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. This is the third book in the series, where Artemis tries to sell fairy technology to the ruthless and shady Business man Jon Spiro and it’s safe to say that hings don’t quite go according to plan.
So the first drawing is after Butler gets shot by Blunt. Artemis freezes Butler using cryogenic equipment from Ice Age Cryogenics, then makes a call using a mountain of buzz words to attract the attention of the LEP. The LEP send Captain Holly Short who finds a distressed Artemis in the back of a van in Harley Street.
The second is from the end. After an agreement with the LEP, Artemis, Butler and Juliet are about to have their minds wiped of all knowledge of fairies. In an ’emotional’ goodbye, Artemis give Mulch a disc, disguised as the coin Holly gave Artemis is book two (see Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident for a picture of this scene) in a final attempt to get his memories back.

Being a massive Frozen fan, I fell in love with series 4. They had an amazing storyline that didn’t really contradict the film, some amazing actors and this ended up being my favourite season of Once Upon a Time.
In the film, Frozen, Elsa was by far my favourite character, but after watching this, I fell in love with Anna too, so I decided to focus on her.
My first drawing is from Episode 9, Smash the Mirror: Part 2. It is set in Arendelle after Ingrid tries to make Anna and Elsa her sisters to replace Gerda and Helga. When she finds out Anna’s suspicions, she imprisons her so that she doesn’t ruin her chance with Else but this massively backfires. Elsa finds out where Anna is, and they make plans to return Ingrid to the urn. Ingrid finds out though and when Elsa returns Anna to her cell to enact her plan, Ingrid is already there waiting. She chains Anna up, then casts the Spell of Shattered Sight on her, which ultimately results in Elsa being imprisoned in the urn and not Ingrid.
The second is from Episode 11, Shattered Sight. Ingrid has enacted the Spell of Shattered sight over the whole of Storybrook, but Elsa, Anna and Emma are immune. Anna finds a note from her mother, Gerda, who is also Ingrid’s sister explaining her regret to Anna and Else about trapping Ingrid in the urn, and removing all memories of Ingrid and Helga from the citizens of Arendelle. After reading it to Ingrid, she realises that she already had what she wanted all along which was her sister’s love. She ends up sacrificing herself to break the spell of shattered sight and gives Elsa and Emma their memories of her back.
S4 E9 – Ingrid casts the spell of shattered sight on Anna
S4 E 11 – Ingrid sacrifices herself to revoke the spell of shattered sight and returns Elsa and Emma’s memories
And back to one of my favourite TV shows of all time…Doctor Who. These are from 2 different series with 2 different Doctors and 2 different companions.
The first is from Series 1 with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and Billie Piper as his companion, Rose Tyler. It is from one of the episodes that most people remember when they think of Christopher Eccleston…The Doctor Dances. Jack unwittingly unleashed the nanogenes from a Tula ambulance which created Gas Mask zombies. Nancy saves the day by admitting ‘I am your mummy. I will always be your mummy’ to Jamie, who she’d been pretending was her brother.
The second is from series 4, with David Tennant as the Doctor and my favourite companion, Donna Noble. The episode is Fires of Pompeii. Donna had been kidnapped by the Sibylline Sisterhood for ‘falsely prophesying’ the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The Doctor saves Donna just before she is sacrificed and ends up talking to the High Priestess of the Sibylline, ending up with the Doctor threatening the High Priestess with a water pistol.
Series 1 – The Doctor Dances
Series 4 – Fires of Pompeii
I was feeling Christmassy so I decided to draw a famous scene from one of the greatest Christmas stories of all time. I actually started this drawing roughly this time last year, but I just never got round to finishing it with Uni and exams, but I have finally finished it. The advantage of doing it on a tablet it that it enables me to get the haunted atmosphere just right.
This is from a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and is such a famous scene it hardly needs an introduction, but I’m going to give it one anyway. Marley, who died 7 years previously is doomed to wander the earth due to his selfish and unfeeling ways. To prevent Scrooge from following the same route, Marley haunts Scrooge, giving him the opportunity to change his ways before dies and is forced to wander the earth.
As the Marley’s say in a Muppets Christmas Carol (or at least the soundtrack):
‘It is required of every man that the spirit within should walk abroad among his fellow men. And if that spirit goes not forth in life, he is condemned to do so after death, and witness what he cannot share, but might have shared and turned to happiness.’
Since my Fiat Panda is small, I cannot fit too much in when I’m bringing stuff to my new house, so I still have a lack of books here, so once again, it’s a TV series. These are from the first series of Once Upon A Time and one is set in the Enchanted Forest, and one in Storybrook.
So the first is in the Enchanted Forest, when Snow White is trapped by Prince Charming in a net after stealing is jewelry, in particular, his engagement ring given to him by his mother. This scene is full of humour and is the start of Snow and Charming’s relationship.
The second is set in Storybrook. Belle’s father breaks into Gold’s shop which results in Gold kidnapping and assaulting him. This ends up with Gold in jail. Regina visits Gold in jail to taunt him with the teacup Belle dropped which he treasures more than anything. She exchanges the teacup for the admission of his real name…Rumplestiltskin.
Charming captures Snow and demands she gives back the ring
Regina exchanges the teacup for Golds real name
The next few post will likely be of TV series as opposed to the usual book drawings as I have moved house, but I don’t have many books with me at the moment, so I only have what Netflix and DVDs can give me.
These are from Marvel Agents of SHIELD and are based on some of my favourite Fitz-Simmons moments. Leo Fitz (engineering) and Jemma Simmons (Biochemistry) are two of SHIELD’s best and brightest scientists and are fantastic characters.
The first drawing is from the second series when Fitz is getting back on his feet after almost dying from oxygen starvation at the end of Series 1 and Simmons has returned from her time undercover at Hydra. The ‘Real SHIELD’ invades Coulson’s SHIELD, knocking them out with dendrotoxin gas, and when they wake, Fitz and Simmons are left on the floor in the labs, presumed not to be a threat to anyone. Agent Weaver visits them and asks Simmons for her help to make sure Mack is OK, then Fitz is left alone.
The second is from Series 3 Simmons was sucked into a portal to another world and months after, Fitz jumps through the same portal and rescues her. Malick wants to know how she got back through the portal so that he can bring a dangerous inhuman back from exile, resulting in Fitz and Simmons’ capture. They are tortured to get the information, and Fitz agrees to show them how to get back as long as they stop hurting Simmons. When Simmons discovers this, she begs Fitz to let them kill her as the inhuman is too dangerous to bring back, to which he responds that he is not strong enough to live in a world without her.

S3E9 – Fitz goes through the portal
Back to memories then. So this one is from Manchester/Ireland FSY 2017 which is the session I was a counsellor on this year.
It’s from Orientation on the first day where the cousellors get on stage and dance to get the youth excited for the week ahead. This is me and the other counsellors doing the EFY dance to Vengabus by Vengaboys which was the second dance of Orientation.
This was originally more of a doodle initially hence the pencil sketch, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.
Sorry about not posting for a while. In the last 3 months, I have graduated university, moved house and started my first real job so I have been rather busy.
So these drawings are from Taken by Storm, the third and final book in the Raised by Wolves trilogy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
The first drawing is after Callum, Bryn’s previous alpha, arrives to take Bryn to a Senate meeting. After getting in after a run, Callum is playing with Bryn’s sister, Katy, in wolf form. Ali walks in and protectively puts her arm around Bryn to remind Callum that Bryn is her daughter and not a puzzle. In the mean time, Lily, a young werewolf, kicks Callum, the most powerful alpha in North America, for taking away Katy’s attention.
The second drawing is set after the senate meeting. Bryn discovers that Maddie, a wolf that used to be part of her pack has gone rabid and is discussing with Callum and Sora how to approach the situation. Suddenly, Caroline is in between with a gun aimed at Sora’s chest and and a crossbow aimed at Callum’s knee. She tells Sora to leave as she won’t let Ali get hurt again, refering to Bryn’s punishment after breaking her conditions in the first book.

My latest drawings are from the second series of BBC TV show, Robin Hood. I used to love this show, and then they killed off Marian at the end of the second series.
These drawings are set at the beginning and the end of the series. The first is from the first episode. After leaving Guy at the alter and showing support for King Richard, the Sheriff and Guy are angry with Marian and her father and Guy is sent to collect them and bring them to the castle. He makes Marian beg for him not to burn down the house, but even that won’t stop him. The house in burnt, Marian and her father are left homeless and taken to the castle under house arrest.
The second is from episode 11. Guy discovers that Marian is the Night watchman and she is arrested and taken to the castle to await execution. She tries to escape but the attempt is unsuccessful. Guy and Marian then argue, as when the Sheriff returns, she is to be executed, to which she responds, ‘Did you think I would just sit here and wait to be executed?’
