ILLUMINART follows the sell-out success of his 2021 Dalek Art Book, Exterminart! Classic and Silver Editions.
The new book showcases the work from a career of over fifty years in the publishing industry. This is the first volume of a Trilogy that will cover not only most of his Doctor Who art – the classic covers, poster prints, calendar art and much more – but also many unpublished and unseen artworks together with personally selected pieces from his extensive canon of work in other genres such as Star Wars, Dan Dare, Gerry Anderson, BBC Cult TV and Audio and much more.
Also featured are sketches, preliminary drawings, in-progress images and many unpublished and unseen artworks, his ‘Hidden Dimensions’, accompanied by commentaries from himself and fans giving an intimate insight into the process of his art, his early years, inspirations and artistic heroes and the ups and downs of a long career as a freelance illustrator.
Every picture tells a story and Andrew has quite a few to tell!
Doctors, Monsters, Companions and More!

A Personal Message from Andrew Skilleter
“At my time of life I felt it is now or never to bring my work together in three volumes as the definitive collection. It’s a huge commitment for me and can only be achieved by the continuing support of fans and influencers! I love books and it’s a privilege to lavish time on producing something that will look and feel amazing. While each volume will stand on its own, the Trilogy will represent the ultimate collection of my artwork. I have a passion for design and once again I’m working with Robert Hammond. There’s nothing he doesn’t know about design and production. With the Gold Editions we had an opportunity to create something even more special that the Exterminart! Silver Edition. It’s extra pages of art and material is just one of the features that makes it totally unique.”
