Real work

NHS Blog Doctor: new and improved...

Your humble Devil has been very busy with real work recently, and one of the projects that he has been working on can now be revealed—so, welcome the new, revamped NHS Blog Doctor.

Part of the revamp includes a new "God Doctor"; there were some things that I was never happy with on the original drawing—the mouth, for instance—and the new God Doctor has a certain gravitas, I think, whilst retaining the essential features. But, drawing people with their arms folded, especially from a three quarters angle, is really difficult!

The good Doctor was a pleasure to work with, and much kudos must go to Faith for sending me IE screenshots at crucial moments...

That's a nice job, DK. It looks good; clean, attractive, easy to find your way around. So unlike its designer!

Perhaps I shall retain you one of these days to usher in Eugenides 2.0 (Baby One More Time)...

Good Doctor or God Doctor? God Doctor seems needlessly messianic to me.

You based in on Dr Harold Shipman, presumably.

Ha- why thank you Devil!

Just wondering....does Dr Crippen look anything like his avatar (old father time with a stethoscope)? This image certainly suits the general tone of his blog.

David,

To be honest, I have no idea: I have spoken to him often over the years, but never met him.

When he asked me to do the original avatar, he asked for a "god doctor" and that is what I gave him.

But yes, I am intrigued too...
