So recently BBC Worldwide wanted to display some fan artwork relating to the 12th Doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) at this year's San Diego Comic Con and so put the word out on Tumblr. I dutifully responded and attached a couple photos of some stuff I had done recently and that was that.
Put it aside. Forgot about it.
Then several weeks ago I got an email rather excitingly from BBC Enterprises saying that they would indeed like to show my submissions and sent a form for me to fill in which basically gave them the right to pimp out my work to their heart's content etc etc etc.
Being the good little attention whore that I am I happily signed the form and sent it back.
I actually somehow by this point had forgotten what I had actually submitted to be shown as I had sent off a couple bits and pieces for consideration.
I asked the woman who emailed me to say that my submissions had been chosen and she rather politely told me what really I should already know. Which obviously made me feel a right nana.
Anyway after that I completely forgot about it. Again.
Until only a few moments ago when I happened to be browsing through Tumblr. I suddenly saw a photo from the Con which showed the large screen displaying some artwork, and mine was one of the two that had been chosen to demonstrate the display.
I'm terribly chuffed with this I have to say.
Anyway, here's the photo, courtesy of whoever took it at BBC Enterprises.31.media.tumblr.com/59ba1822ba…
Mine's on the right. The one with my name.
