“Doctor Whoville”: $20 t-shirts at shop.ianleino.com

Every Doctoring Who down in Whoville
Toasts your survival and the revival of goodwill.
Even Oods and Judoons and Daleks confess
Today is a day to say, “Exterminate!” less.

It’s the season of hearts, big and deep as the Tardis,
To make room for any who, any how, regardless!
For faces and spaces may change with the season,
But peace on Earth is a wish for every dimension.

(WHO-liday poem by the incredibly talented Josiah Bancroft)

 

I don’t know about you, but I was never a big fan of doctors as a child. I never saw one unless I was already feeling poorly, and then once I went, the fun activities in all of the ‘Highlights’ magazines in their offices had already been completed.

However, there were two that always held a magical sway over me: Doctor Who and Dr. Seuss. Both spun up my imagination in new and exciting ways, introducing me to a dizzying array of new ideas and dramatically extending the borders of the realm of possibility.

Somehow it felt only natural to pay homage to both by combining them into this one design.

T-shirts are available in my shop, printed on American Apparel 100% soft jersey cotton tees. And given the holiday feel of the design, I’ve also printed up 5″x7″ greeting cards which are available in a 4-pack or a 12-pack. The front features the main illustration, plus a “Happy WHO-lidays” greeting, while the inside contains the poem above.

Thanks for looking, and Happy WHO-lidays!

    I’ve only been a fan of Doctor Who since the new series that start in what – 2005 or 2006? However as soon as I saw this shirt I knew I had to have it. I can’t wait to get mine.
