In celebration of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday this week,  enjoy David Tennant reading Shakespeare’s Sonnet 71, “No longer mourn for me when I am dead.”

David did this reading in 2012 for a special iPad app by Touch Press that featured readings of all 154 of Shakespeare’s Sonnets by an all-star cast of actors, writers, academics, and Shakespeare experts, including Sir Patrick Stewart, Fiona Shaw, Stephen Fry, and Oliver Ford Davies. The app features readings with highlighted texts, the Arden Shakespeare notes, a commentary by Don Paterson, and the ability to share the performances via social media sites or e-mail.

You can find out more about the app HERE

Yes, I was playing King Arthur in Edinburgh, which was only my second job, and the review in The Scotsman said: ‘The cast of 18 are uniformly excellent, with the exception of David Tennant, who lacks any charm or ability whatsoever.’ Which I have to say floored me for quite a while.

Every year around his birthday, David posts information about a new fundraising campaign so that fans can donate to one of David’s chosen charities as a birthday gift. This year, David introduced his brand new campaign for Headway Essex: #HATNOMINATE.
Headway Essex cares for people who have acquired a brain injury by any means, and David has been a patron of them since 2007 when he visited the centre to research his role as a survivor of brain injury in the BBC drama Recovery.
You can make a donation at the Headway Essex Just Giving page HERE. Or UK donors can text “HATS30 £3” to 70070 to donate £3 to the campaign. Just Giving can accept donations from around the world.
To help spread the word, David asks that you join him in taking a selfie with your favourite hat and to use the hashtag #Hatnominate to encourage friends, family, and followers to donate and show their hat for Headway. Whether you donate a little or a lot, every penny helps and Headway Essex will ensure it goes to help the individuals and families that they support.

»SHOWRUNNER NOTE

My deepest apologies for my absence as of late, but lots of stuff has been happening to me. The biggest of which being a car accident. That has kept me out of commission for awhile and just prevented me from really feeling up to looking up any news, quotes, photos, etc. to put up.

But, I’m back now, and have been working on commissioned art for the past week or 2 just to try and keep paying my rent (if you could signal boost my artblog’s patreon post HERE that would be real helpful, too). I decided to take today off to do things for myself and have decided that one of those things should be to refill the queue here for a week or two.

For those who have been sending asks about the contest, yes, I still plan on doing it. I even started the painting of David I said I would make, but then I broke my leg so there ya go. Sorry about that. I’m also hoping to get back into Dreamweaver and update my calendar in the next week or so. I may just take this whole week off. Not like I’m going anywhere.

Thanks to all those who have persisted in following me here and didn’t give up on me, even when I couldn’t find time for an update until now. Hope you enjoy, and watch out, Tennants about!

Just for you guys, I made a new print of David so that I have a proper excuse to promote my Society6 page on this blog. You can buy all the pieces above as prints, shirts, hoodies, pillows, tote bags, and wall clocks! I’m currently out of work, so this is my only form of income at the moment, so if you cannot buy, a signal boost would be greatly appreciated. I hope to do more prints with DT soon, and if anyone is interested, I will make prints available from their suggestions and make another post when the time comes.

David Tennant & Catherine Tate Doctor Who photoshoot

I have to admit that I was very green when I first started [at the RSAMD]. I hadn’t really done anything in life and I was surrounded by all these people who were much older and had much more professional experience. I remember spending most of the first couple of years just trying to bluff it. The older students managed to corrupt me, which was great. Instead of doing double maths at school, I was doing something I really loved and partying in between.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I really hope you can appreciate the blood sweat and tears that went into finishing this by the 14th. Hand painting the same thing 16 times is.. fatiguing. But I’m pretty happy with the result, so I guess it was worth it. It was very experimental mixing my portrait painting with animation. I may do more in the future but if so they will definitely have less frames cause damn. Also this is actually a bit bigger, you can see the full size here (x).

Thank you so much for your answer! He’s so down to earth, it’s refreshing to read his quotes. And by the way, I love your tumblr! :)

Oh I love getting comments like this because it encourages me to plow through my work faster so that it doesn’t last until I have to surrender and collapse in bed at 2AM for a couple hours of sleep, so that I can finally get some free time to force myself to pop in some things to the queue, so thank you very very much for all the love and support! Keep it coming!
