Will Brooks
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United Kingdom
I'm a freelance writer and designer living and working in Cardiff Bay, with clients including Cubicle 7 Entertainment, Big Finish Productions, and BBC Worldwide.

Mostly, I work in poster and packaging design, though I'm also able to produce layouts, info graphics, and more. If there's something in particular you're looking for, then I am available for commissions - just drop me a line on here, or via my portfolio on Behance (link below), and we can cook up something great!
Interests

Every time I post a new Doctor Who story image, I get a flurry of messages asking if it’s available as a print. Well, the answer to that is now ‘yes’!

I’ve launched a Patreon campaign, which let’s you support me with a monthly donation, and receive some really cool rewards in return. Pledges start as low as $5/month, and get you access to ‘behind the scenes’ commentary on the artwork, including early draft images and notes, and there’s options to get hold of prints and postcards of the artwork each month, too.

Every penny helps me to create more of these things, and I’m looking forward to finally being able to give you guys something back for your support - it really does mean a huge amount. 

***

So… what is Patreon?

Patreon is a little bit like Kickstarter, if you squint a bit, and try not to think about it too much. Instead of contributing money towards one big, final, goal, you pledge an amount each month, and receive rewards each month, too. It’s the gift which keeps on giving for both of us!

You pledge to donate a monthly amount to me - rewards start from as little as $5 - and Patreon will debit that money from you on the 1st of each moth. I’ll then set about picking and packing and sending out rewards.

You’ve mentioned ‘rewards’ quite a few times now. What kind of rewards are we talking about?

Well, the obvious ones are prints of my Doctor Who artwork. These come as standard 10x8 prints on 280gsm silk paper, or smaller postcards, on lovely 350gsm card stock.

I’ll be posting a new image here on Tumblr every Friday, and then prints and postcards of the previous month’s images will be sent out in the first week of every month.

There’s also Patreon-exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ commentary on the artwork, featuring early draft images and notes, which will be available on the site every Friday, to co-incide with the new artwork release.

I’m a fan of the Classic Series / New Series. What kind of split is there in the artwork?

Each month will usually contain four ‘Classic Series’ pieces to one ‘New Series’ piece, though five week months will see the extra week being filled with a ‘New Series’ story. Based on the number of stories in each ‘iteration’ of the show, this is the easiest way to keep everything consistent.

I’m based in [insert country of choice]. Can I still take part?

Of course you can! The more the merrier! Shipping of prints and postcards is free within the UK, but overseas patrons will need to add an additional $4 a month to their pledge just so I can make sure the items get to you!

What are the ‘Milestone Goals’ on the Patreon Page?

These are some extra rewards for if we hit a certain amount of donations each month. If we can hit $80 a month, for instance, Patrons will have access to a poll, to work out what stories people would like to see sooner.

If we can hit $150 a month, I’ll add an additional bonus piece each month, based on something from Doctor Who’s expanded universe - the audios, books, spin offs, or comics, which will be sent out as an extra to everyone pledging $15 or more a month.

I’ve got a question that you’ve not covered here.

Please feel free to drop me a message on here, or via my Facebook Page, and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can with an answer!

Your Blu-Ray covers make me wish the Beeb would hurry up and release Series 1-8 in that design singly! Don't want to buy the complete set when the covers don't match hehe!

Hiya jake,

I really like the template you've made for it - all the characters 'breaking out' from it looks great!

I know :( I hate having to put so many on there, but I've been stung too many times with people wiping them out and selling prints of work. Hopefully at some point, I'll find an alternative!
