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
Excuse me for a moment while I blow out some of the cobwebs around here!

I've not been on DeviantArt for a long old time. I know, I know, I should keep it more updated, but I've been busy. I won't bore you with the details, so for now, a few brief bullet points, just to fill you all in:

  • Even though I've not posted anything new on DeviantArt in about a year, I've still been busy. Busier than ever, in fact. I left my job planning people's kitchens in order to go full-time freelance and it's been a bit non-stop since then. I'm currently working on projects for BBC Worldwide and Big Finish productions, so I have an excuse to play with Doctor Who stuff on Photoshop! I'll post things up as and when I can.
  • But I'm a forgetful sort of chap, so I may well forget to keep things updated here. I'll try to be better, I promise. If in doubt, I keep my online portfolio pretty well updated on Behance, and my Tumblr is usually updated pretty quick, too. You'll find more close-up detail shots of some of my deviations posted over on Tumblr, too.
  • Failing either of those, I'm often around on Twitter. I don't always tweet a lot, but I'm usually around reading things, so it's an easy way to get in touch if you need to.
  • Speaking of which, now that I'm freelance, I'm usually available for commissions. If there's something you're after, just drop me a line on here, Behance, Twitter, or somewhere, and we can have a chat about what I can do for you. I don't have a price list, because things are usually done on a case-by-case basis, and my rates can adjust depending on how much is happening at any one time.
  • Finally, I do keep a regular blog - over at Doctor Who Online. I've been watching an episode a day of Doctor Who from the very beginning, and then writing about it for them since January 1st last year. As I type this, I'm not far from the end of the Tom Baker era. Feel free to check it out, all the entries back to the first are available on the site. 
I think that's everything covered, but if there's anything else you need to know or want to chat about, feel free to get in touch via one of the above options!

Had a couple of hours to kill, so put together a Big Finish-style cover for the new 'Corpse Maker' audiobook...

Doctor Who - The Complete First Doctor, Volume One by willbrooks
Doctor Who - The Complete First Doctor, Volume One
I was recently commissioned to create a range of cases for housing the complete collection of 'classic' Doctor Who DVDs, and have recently completed the production of the first volume.

I've written a fairly detailed 'case study' of the project, and this volume in particular, over on Tumblr - willbrooks1989.tumblr.com/post…

And there's a very quick 'unboxing' video over on Youtube, though it's a little rough around the edges... - www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9DojY…

Doctor Who - The Savages Reconstruction Still by willbrooks
Doctor Who - The Savages Reconstruction Still
I was musing with someone the other day about new ways of creating reconstructions for the missing Doctor Who episodes, which could allow a higher-resolution finished product, and we got onto the subject of ‘recreating’ the tele-snaps as higher res, and then simply applying a few parallax effects to them to give them a little movement.

Here's a still image of a test sequence I put together this morning just to test it out. You can see a compressed gif version of the 'animation' and the original tel-snap this image was based on over at my Tumblr - willbrooks1989.tumblr.com

Doctor Who - Sneak Peek by willbrooks
Doctor Who - Sneak Peek
Apologies for the silence on here recently - I'm waiting for the official 'nod of approval' on several things I've been working on over the last couple of months.

For now, though, here's a sneak-peek at a big project I'm currently working on, since the discs arrived today. Expect a big reveal (with a video and everything!) in March...

Doctor Who - Every Story Poster by willbrooks
Doctor Who - Every Story Poster
I made a poster last year which chronicled every Doctor Who story from 'An Unearthly Child' through 'The Time of the Doctor', and it seemed to go down rather well.

Then it was lost in the great hard-drive crash of 2014, which happened only about a week after completion. Ho hum, these things happen! So many people have been requesting the poster, though (mores than any others I've done), that I've now rebuilt it from scratch, adding in the stories from Series Eight, which brings us up to 'Death in Heaven'.

All the Doctor box outs have been revised, and replaced with nicer (higher resolution!) images, and several of the little images to represent each story have been updated, too.

In response to the requests I get for this one, I've made it available over on my Etsy - www.etsy.com/uk/shop/WillBrook… - in three sizes, ranging from A3 up to A1.

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!
