The Doctor Who "Rembrandt" fanart


This painting represents a very special labor of love that the chief geeks at have been scheming on for a few years now….

After finding a brilliant painter to make a few of their insane dreams come true, Bunny had another crazy idea. What if we could do the same thing, but with characters from our favorite shows and movies?

Sorry about the watermark. You know how it goes.

This painting is based on Rembrandt’s “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” featuring most of the major cast members of the last 6 Doctor Who series. The actual painting is over 3 feet wide, and two feet tall, and to say that it is stunning is an understatement.

No one cares about poor old Mickey…

When the painter dropped it off, we all stood around the office in a mixture of silence and intermittent high fives. It is just beautiful.
