Comments: Martin Proctor's Art

It was in January 1991 that I met up with Martin Proctor at a local convention. I was (and remain) in awe of his work. He had been the art director for the Doctor Who Information Network throughout the 1980s, and his artwork graced many of the covers of Enlightenment. He was a celebrity and I was a stranger, but somehow I plucked up the courage to ask him to illustrate my stories, and he agreed. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. [1]
It would be remiss of me to review ITN without mentioning the extra parts of the package which enhance the story itself. Martin Proctor continues to establish his preeminence amongst fan artists, offering beautifully drawn line illustrations throughout. Proctor is particularly proficient with the faerie land and characters, but does seem to have some trouble capturing the Seventh Doctor's appearance -- although he's often on target, at times he makes the Doctor seem very cadaverous and aged. Benny, on the other hand, looks like she just hopped off the cover of "Love and War". [2]
