Awesome. uick ship and even more beautiful and classy than I anticipated.
Fantastic illustration for one of my favorite Bond films! Captures the snowy environment of this film perfectly. High quality as always!
Dracula, Van Helsing, hippies, and Caroline Munro - what's not to love?!? Very well done poster and appreciate the tagline. High quality as always!
Terrific poster for one of my all-time favorite horror anthology films! Top notch! Love the tagline too. High quality!
Photocopied Fanzines to Online Store in 20 Short, Easy Years
When I was at school, back when education was still in Black and White, and required a uniform and knowing how to use apostrophes, the words "I like Doctor Who" usually resulted in a punch. And usually that punch landed somewhere very sensitive, leaving you to think twice about mentioning any allegiance to BBC 1's top timelord again. Drafty 70s British playgrounds were a cruel and unforgiving environment.
Stubbornly though I hung on to my love for Doctor Who, but just never mentioned it, and instead pretended that I liked naff crap like Airwolf, Manimal, Automan and...well, whatever other rubbish ITV was importing from America at the time. Just when I'd mastered the art of doing reasonably passable approximations of Doctor Who paperback covers, somewhat* in the style of the late great Frank Bellamy, or Chris Achilleos, the BBC put Doctor Who on hiatus. When it came back, I was a bit better at drawing, and found myself contributing artwork to fanzines, magazines and conventions. I just never talked about it much. It still wasn't cool. Fun, but definitely not cool.
Eventually I got a proper job, doing properly long hours, doing proper design, for not not very proper money, and Doctor Who had long since been cancelled, which was handy, as I didn't have the time to watch it anyway.
Then Doctor Who came back. And lo, it was suddenly cool. Everybody liked it, and claimed they'd always liked it (which was odd as I always recalled being in a minority of one) and I started getting itchy artwork fingers. That's how I find myself here now, with a store crammed full of Doctor Who artwork. Originally I wanted a healthy balance between all manner of cult and quirky shows and film artwork, but Doctor Who seems to be the main draw, so, I try and provide for that market.
There are bursts of artwork activity, lulls too, and the store plays very much second fiddle to my career as a graphic designer. But, whenever I get a chance, I like to add a new piece here and there, whether it be Who or Hammer or Sherlock or whatever.
Do remember to check my Twitter feed, Facebook Page, and Tumblr for teasers, and news about what's coming up next for DadManCult Art.
I also run the DadManClik store which sells prints of my photography, and the DadManCat store which sells artwork that doesn't quite fit anywhere else.
*Not very much
I'm a designer, illustrator and part time geek. I draw, and scribble stuff I like, and would pin up on my own office walls. Turns out other people like what I like and what I draw too, so, that's a handy coincidence from a business point of view...

Please order items in plenty of time, as I can't be held responsible for how long the Postal system will take to deliver your order. I will endeavour to dispatch within 5 working days, but I do list 1-2 weeks as a processing time, just to cover myself during busy periods, after that I'm afraid it's all down to the post man.
