Daryl Joyce: illustration and design
Commercial illustration, design and private commissions
Daryl Joyce is a professional illustrator and designer whose work has been published in magazines, books, on the Web - and has even been used on television.
Daryl can work in a wide range of styles, usually using traditional media such as pencil and gouache for portraits and commissions, while frequently mixing traditional media with computer painting for commercial work.
Doctor Who illustrations
Daryl’s work for various Doctor Who publications is perhaps his most famous - it’s been commissioned for Doctor Who magazine, 2|Entertain’s Doctor Who DVDs, the official BBC Doctor Who website, Doctor Who novels and the Doctor Who story books. Indeed, illustrating Doctor Who stories is very much a passion for Daryl, who is a long-term fan of the series, especially early Doctor Who - where he is able to recreate dramatic scenes which 1960s and 70s budgets would not allow.
Science fiction illustrations
Daryl is also fond of much classic science fiction, film and television - so he works actively in this area, with work ranging from recreating illustrations for the British classic ‘Jane’ series to Gerry Anderson’s famous series such as Space: 1999 and Thunderbirds.
Daryl also has a keen interest in first and second world war aviation, illustrating everything from biplane dogfights to the Dambusters’ raids.
Portraits and commissions
Daryl is happy to accept commissions of most types and has undertaken a lot of portraiture work - everything from babies to horses, in fact.
With vast experience of a wide range of media genres, Daryl can apply his skills to creating elements for film, television and books - including spaceships, vehicles, aliens and monsters. Daryl’s also been brave enough to redesign classic film and television creatures such as the tripods from War of the Worlds and the Daleks from Doctor Who.
Daryl also undertakes a wide range of design work, including packaging work, such as the production of video/DVD sleeves.
