A Partial Map of Your TARDIS (Subject to Change)

SUMMARY: What it says on the tin.
GENRE: gen, 11th Doctor-era-ish
RATING: Totally safe for work or library viewing.
WARNING: large images and many of them.

NOTES: The idea for this grabbed me by the throat and would not let go. I lost sleep, I ignored more pressing concerns, I burnt my laptop's keypad because I forgot about the cigarette I was holding. This was a super-fun project to do and even if like two people show up and go 'huh' I will still be happy because seriously, this was ~so much fun~. Ugh nerd.

NOTES TO THE MODS: This hovers between fanfiction and fanart, and given a choice between this comm and the nearly-dead dw_fanart, I picked this one. Please don't make me move! I like it here.

NOTES MORE SPECIFIC: All layouts and drawings made in Illustrator, textures made in the Gimp, and the Shipyard modeled in SketchUp. Fonts are Garamond Premier and Snell Roundhand, with interludes of Helvetica and Times New Roman.

DISCLAIMER: I didn't invent the TARDIS, I just do pictures about it, and I make no money, only funtimes and vectors. And vector funtimes.








ETA!


URRONE: I have read all your comments and each of them fills my doofy heart with glee. Thank you all, seriously. At this point my brain pops out thinking about responding to everyone, but I respond WITH MY SOUL and send you great love.


IN RE: Prints!

1. The colors are web-optimized and RGB! Things might print out funny, idek.

2. As I am not super-comfy making money off someone else's property, I would suggest something along the lines of https://printonline.fedex.com - I can't vouch for their online service, but their irl version has always served me well. The process there is to take a file on a USB and go to the counter sayin' MAKE ME THIS ONE SUPER-BIG. If anyone has a better suggestion, do drop a line.

THIS MIGHT HELP?


Individual PDFs (CMYK) for printing individually:

front cover
frontispiece
Console Room
The Library
Outside-in
Recreation Center
The Shipyard
The Aether
A Memorial
Cathedral
The Gardens
Catacombs
?
Shuttle Schedule
Cafe Menu
Colophon
back cover






I also realized just now that although it was sort of intended to be portrait-oriented with each page folding in half, I never went through the business of having it make practical sense; either the covers are wrong or the alignment of the text on the front and back inside pages is wrong. This is vaguely distressing me and at the moment I'm not sure how to fix it one way or the other. For now I will assume that no one actually wants to make a book. If it is somehow a thing you're interested in, drop a line and we'll figure something out.

This is so epic I do not even know where to begin. It is amazing. And a bit sad. And so terribly random. And all in all quite perfect.

Begin somewhere towards the middle? Jk. Thank you! I was trying to match the show for funny/poignant/alarming/wtf, which the show is ace at.

This... is madness. It's marvellous and whimsical and ever so slightly dark, and I love all the fantastic little touches in the text. Historically inaccurate in the wardrobe, and the 17th chamber in the catacombs being called the Fourth Room. Not to even mention the art, which is gorgeous as well. I am so mem'ing this. If I had a printer, I would put these up all over my walls. As is, I shall simply have to ogle them online.

...Since a few people have pointed it out, I feel honor-bound to admit the Fourth Chamber was a Wu Tang reference. SHAME. But thank you! Yes.

This is brilliant!! I love the console -- where things happen. LOL

Are all of those rooms ones that have been mentioned in the show? Like the outside-in room?

Very cool!

Thank you! And, some of the places are canon (Tom Baker had gardens and manky tunnels, Peter Davison had a cricket pitch, Matt Smith fell into the swimming pool/library, and Tennant had to be keeping the scooter from "Devil's Lantern" somewhere), but everything else is either invented or nicked from fanon. Mountain ranges and forests seem to be popular in Seventh Doctor fiction, for some reason.
