A now slightly older, but still vertically challenged, digital artist. Still shipping David Tennant and now (of course), Olivia Colman. In fact, most would probably say I'm borderline obsessive. Actually... forget the borders! I know I am :)
Especially when I think back to 2011. When I first started making Broadchurch artwork, long before the show had even been filmed, let alone aired! It was also during this same year I created a mockup S1 BC DVD cover (available to view in my gallery) with little intention other than sharing and officially declaring my love for this new crime drama. Little did I know after S1 finished that the same cover art would go viral. Mainly in Europe, as they mistook my concept work for being the 'official' S1 DVD cover. Yeah...I wish!
Course, by 2015, I was completely obsessed with the show and its two leads. An obsession which perhaps had a part to play in me getting approached by the BBC's The Graham Norton Show. Who, at the time, politely asked, via email, if I would be willing to share a few of my Broadchurch manips to be shown at the recording which was supposed to illustrate a section referring to 'Miller and Hardy's on-screen sexual tension'. A sexual tension, which I may add, never existed! Except perhaps in the minds of all us Ellie_x_Alec 'shippers.
So, was I bitter we didn't get more tension between the two?
Hell yeah. Or at least I was back then. However, ask me the same question now and I'm much less likely to be troubled by the matter, now that end of series tensions and anxieties have passed. These days, I'm able to understand and appreciate better, why certain script choices were made. An open ending without complications or awkward commitments is a far better option than a predictable one that has nowhere else to go. And, who knows, maybe after Chibber's is done playing with the thirteenth doctor's Tardis he will revisit the old town and decide to drag them all out of the retirement home, kicking and screaming blue murder, and give us one more series. Or maybe two...perhaps even three... ;)
Regarding the fan art. At this present time, I'm creating little to zero 'public fan art'. Largely because a spate of theft, back in April 2018, made me lose interest in this medium. A violation of my personal IP that left me angry and upset, to the point where, so far, I've really not been able to rekindle my love for this genre. Which is sad really, 'cause fan art was always my first love. :(
Still, the world hasn't stopped turning and my personal adoration for my TV idols continues. Just, these days, it's all done a little more...privately.
Hope you enjoy the old portfolio x
Not one but two art names!
If you follow me on other platforms then you may well have seen two different versions of my name floating around. Both are moi!
i4dezign73 — is still my *just for fun* fan art and youtube tag
ifourdezign — The name I use on all other accounts relating to my art
ifourdezign - DA: http://ifourdezign-da.deviantart.com/
I can also be found at Redbubble - search for ifourdezign (with a zed or a zee).

Hmmm, that's interesting. I have read somewhere on the site that some DA accounts are being targeted with these unsavoury website addresses. So makes you wonder what other users are seeing?
It could be because I've blocked their accounts already that I'm not being given access. Which... I guess makes sense.
I know - I've had another since posting this status. One other thing that's odd, since blocking those I suspect are shady, is I retried to access one user's page and it now comes up with 'you are unauthorised to access this page' WTF!!!!?!! If they are going to fave my artwork then, surely, as the owner of the original piece, I have some say or right to see WTF they are doing with it?!? Unless of course, it's just another DA glitch! Whatever happened to the good ole days of upfront honesty... If such a thing ever existed! sigh...
