Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

A Choice Of New Who Sketches Up For Grabs

Scotch Corner artist Graeme Neil Reid is running a competition over on his I Got No Work Done Today Because... blog to win one of three new Doctor Who colour sketches that he has been displaying over the last week.

So that he can enjoy comic conventions himself rather than spending the duration of them sketching, Graeme creates his A5 colour sketches beforehand, displaying them on both his own blog and on the Scotch Corner daily art blog for people to see. His Doctor Who sketches based on the new series as so popular that they regularly sell out faster than any of his other themed sketches at the conventions that he has attended.

However one of these three new sketches will never make it to the next convention that Graeme will be attending because he is offering his Blogspot and Twitter followers the chance of winning one sketch of their choice over on I Got No Work Done Today Because...

Each of the three sketches are inspired by the final episode of the latest season of Doctor Who, The Wedding of River Song, and depict the Doctor wearing his cowboy hat surrounded by skulls, Amy Pond with her suit and eyepatch, and finally a Silent.

The details of how to win your choice of sketch are on the I Got No Work Done Today Because... blog.

More of Graeme Neil Reid's sketches are available to buy at his
Original Scribbles webstore.
