In 2019 we had the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and when one of my Patreon supporters enquired about a commission to commemorate this amazing event with an added hint of ‘Doctor Who’ then I was always going to be excited to paint this historic moment in time.
The brief was pretty straight forward. Create a piece that featured the ‘Eagle’ LM (Lunar Module) that landed at the Sea of Tranquility, the astronauts and a little touch of Doctor Who. The reference to Doctor Who had to be reasonably subtle, the main focus was to be the moon landing but something had to be added to give it a nod to the TV series that many of my supporters know and love.
