Vote Now: Which Doctor Who Serial Would You Like to See Commissioned for The Invisible Artist?

Candy Jar Books is looking for your help on The Invisible Artist, the artbook of iconic Doctor Who artist, Jeff Cummins.

Jeff will be painting a new commission for the tome, and it’s up to you to decide which Doctor Who serial that masterpiece will be of. Your options include stories from the Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Doctors:

  • The Time Warrior
  • City of Death
  • The Visitation
  • Terror of the Vervoids
  • The Curse of Fenric

The winning painting will be presented inside the book alongside a range of Cummins’ other pieces, including from the sci-fi franchise and from other publications like the Radio Times as well as album covers.

You can vote for whichever serial you’d like to see over at Smart Survey.

And there’s the blurb for The Invisible Artist:

Since 1976, Jeff Cummins has been a prolific artist on many book covers, album covers, and posters. He thinks of himself as the invisible artist due to the fact that much of his work, although known – and out there, most people are unaware that it was Jeff who did it.

He is well-known for his work on the Target novelisations of the 1970s/1980s, most notably The Face of EvilThe Three Doctors, and Horror of Fang Rock, as well as cover art for several of the New Adventures of the 1990s, including the seminal Dimension Riders and Conundrum.

Not only does this book cover his Doctor Who work, inside you’ll also find stories of The Beatles, of Paul McCartney and his wife, Linda, you will discover the role Jeff had in the marketing of the blockbuster film Back to the Future, painting such artists as Eric Clapton, Yes, Blondie, (and like Chris Achilleos) Whitesnake… and so many more. If a pop/rock artist was popular in the late ’70s/early-80s, the chances are you’ll find them in The Invisible Artist.

The Invisible Artist will be released in paperback and limited edition hardback later this year. Don’t forget to vote!
