I do a weekly podcast with my good friend, Seattle Quizomancer, and my nerd co-dependent, Andrew Asplund, called A Podcast [ , ] For All Intents and Purposes. August 20th is his birthday and I hate him for it. Not that it means anything, but he shares this hallowed day with so many people that I admire, it’s ridiculous: H. P. Lovecraft (though I don’t admire his racial intolerance and elitism); the Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy; Sophie Aldred, who played the Seventh Doctor’s rambunctious companion, Ace; and Anthony Ainley, who prominently and lovingly played the Doctor’s foil, The Master.  So, a lot of Doctor Who and the world’s premiere weird fiction writer––I’m totally jealous.

The best way I can overcome this jealousy and to honor all those wonderful people (Andrew included), I drew a mashup between the Seventh Doctor and Lovecraft whom I am sheepishly calling Doctor Cthulwho. Plus, it helps me blow off some steam as I impatiently wait for this weekend’s premiere of Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor.
