Gavin Rymill - Dr Who and Dalek illustration, Bonkers and a Man after my own Heart
I have to say that I've spent hours on the web reading and viewing Dr Who information that mainly comes from one source. I blame this source for time that I will never get back but has been incredibly enjoyable. 

Gavin Rymill is an illustrator and 3D artist who really knows his Who facts. His art is stunning as he captures atmosphere exactly like my other favourite illustrator Derick Riggs (incidentally I have the most fantastic signed book of his Derick's work, pictures that I grew up with in the 80's)

I don't think it is too much of an understatement to say that Gavin is obsessed by Dalek history. I don't think it is a surprise that he has his own UK history blog and geneology sites. He seems to be a man of unlimited knowledge and Dr Who does attract those of us that like to think outside the 'box' and beyond. It attracts people that like to be part of a creative and wondrous story telling that has perpetual boundaries.

Gavin and his colleagues have even studied where each onscreen dalek went. This is insanity.....it even includes if each model had been split down and tops added to skirts, repaints etc. For me it is a bible and a guide I refer to quite often. I can't explain it, I just know that it brings me great delight.

His masterful 3D renders are used with 3D printers to create detail that would have been impossible a few years ago.

See the images below for his work. There are links at the bottom of the page and you can find him at;

His latest Who magazine cover art is just awesome....a quantum enigmatic style that has Gavin's signature all over it.

Gavins work on Peking Homunculus gives me chills in its detail
It is from the memorable Dr Who story 'The Talons of Weng-Chiang
A story that, to me, is legendary in its unconventional nature
Here Gavin collaborated with another top artist Tea-Lady Design

To see more work by this Gavin please use the links below;
His obsessive Dalek site, Dalek 6388, can be seen here
Gavin's absolutely superb Dr Who artwork and renders together with research can be found at 'The Mind Robber' here
