Silver Scream Artist Interviewed
An upcoming title from US Doctor Who comic book license holders IDW is the Tony Lee-penned Silver Scream, which is illustrated by Coventry’s Al Davison.
Part of IDW’s ongoing series of Tenth Doctor adventures from Tony Lee, Silver Screen is set for a July release, with artist Al Davison apparently pencilled in for a future instalment.
Davison spoke to the Coventry Telegraph recently about the gig, as well working as an artist while suffering from the condition spina bifida.
â€œThe illness is not something given to you to punish you in any way but itâ€™s to make you stronger. Being born with a disability is not a bad thing â€“ without it I wouldnâ€™t be the person I am today.
â€œI feel fortunate to be able to draw. I always say itâ€™s something I was born to do â€“ I didnâ€™t chose to be an artist. It chose me. Iâ€™ve just come along for the ride.
â€œI want to show people what Iâ€™m capable of as someone whoâ€™s disabled and to just celebrate it.â€
