About

Pixel Perfect: A Complete Visual Character Dictionary for the Doctor Who Fans

The PixelWho project came about through a desire of the artist to combine his passion for the British science fiction program “Doctor Who” with the 8-bit artistic style of 80’s video games, which also carries a great deal of nostalgia for him. It is an attempt to be the most complete catalog of Doctor Who characters in order to celebrate the creativity and dedication of all the artists who have worked on the program over the last 50 years.

The overall goal is to document every character, both significant and incidental, from every Doctors’ respective movie/series runs. Nathan scours episode screen captures and freeze frames DVDs in order to recreate each character accurately and roughly to scale. Every pixel is individually laid by hand; no computer conversion program is used. His art is a true labor of love which requires dedication and time. For example the 10th Doctor poster took 4 months of work to create. The lost episodes of William Hartnell’s (the 1st Doctor’s) era were recreated by referencing production photos, telesnaps, and promotional materials.

Thus far he has created limited edition prints for the 1st (Hartnell), 4th (T. Baker), 8th (McGann), 9th (Eccleston), and 10th (Tennant) Doctors.

Nathan is thrilled that his beloved cult science fiction show is now once again a worldwide sensation that it deserves to be, and he has more people to have Whovian discussions with. Both Nathan and Ly have enjoyed finding their niche in the world of science fiction conventions where they were met with great enthusiasm for the artwork and had many interesting conversations with other Whovians. Ly is an avid shopper of Etsy and saw a new opportunity for others to appreciate Nathan’s work. Utilizing her natural business talents, Ly got to work on creating an Etsy shop for Nathan and now manages it.

PixelWho has also been asked to be a part of the official BBC game, "Doctor Who: Legacy." PixelWho artwork is used in the new storyline arc called "Bigger on the Inside." PixelWho is providing and creating pixelated characters, gem designs, and backgrounds for the game. The storyline launched March 2015, with over 100 levels being released in chapters over the next year. The next chapter is being co-written by George Mann of "Engines of War." Doctor Who Legacy is available on multiple mobile platforms, tablets, and Facebook. It's a free app to download and play.

As a fun side fact: The Doctor series posters are also eco-friendly! The printing of each Doctor poster set saves 1/3 of a tree, 133 gallons of water, 100,000 BTUs of energy, 8 pounds of solid waste and 30 pounds of greenhouse gasses. The paper they’re printed on is made with 100% recycled fiber, 60% of which is post-consumer. All processing is chlorine free and the printing plant is run on renewable energy and is offset by carbon credits. The paper manufacturer used is New Leaf Paper and the printer used is Original Impressions. All of our smaller prints and items are sent out to local print shops to support "Shopping Small."
