I think I’ve mentioned it before, I’m very appreciative of the spiritual elements that were woven into Deep Space Nine. The Bajoran faith is a rich wonderful element which is why I decided not to go for a semi-obvious Vulcan whatever and feature a Vedek.
I love drawing the Ferengi but I do struggle with getting their likenesses for each of them separately. On their own, you can obviously tell who the Ferengi is in context but when they’re together I find it harder to distinguish them. The answer to that is of course to draw them together a lot […]
Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised. So this went through several phases. Phase 1 – Just JanewayPhase 2 – Janeway and Kirk, just to mess with people.Phase 3 – Janeway, Kirk and Sisko, because he drinks coffee too so why not.Phase 4 – Archer gets added to the line up because I’m already in […]
It’s an oddity, with a style like mine which I think has best/kindly been described as “whimsical” that so many people would request the most grim, gritty and dark scenes to be reproduced in it. Which brings me to Ed’s request on Patreon for In the Pale Moonlight, an episode I’ve been asked to cover […]
I’m not sure what surprises me more, the fact that I got to 300 days or that it doesn’t feel like 300 days. Yesterday I decided to commit to “mini challenge” within the challenge, a somewhat foolish challenge but why not, heck it’s the 300th. Today I’ll be posting at least one new Star Trek […]
Today’s Star Trek 365 was requested by Alexander over on Patreon. I’ve opened it up to Patreon backers to make sure they get a suggestion in before the end of the year. I’ve done other shots from this episode in the past namely the Defiant/Lakota fight. I’ve tried to capture the desperation in Admiral Leyton here […]
I was reminded recently of how much I enjoyed Captive Pursuit when it was first on. I think it was a peek at the potential of the series, the idea of a whole new alien quadrant with new cultures coming through or being discovered on the other side. O’Brien shines here as the officer who […]
Yesterday when asked why any number of DS9 characters were not included in the DS9 group illustration my official answer became: They are out of frame eating sandwiches. To make good on that here are two of them, please don’t ask why it was Rom, it just isn’t.
The original commission requested if I could also add Garak in and as much as I really would have liked to by the time I was halfway through I realized that he would throw the balance out. I think Nog could easily have appeared and by that stage, there’s Morn and a bunch of characters […]
So I finished book one of Avatar by S.D. Perry and I really enjoyed it. Pacing wise it might have taken a little longer than I’d hope for it to get where it was going but then there’s a lot of story to tell. It’s a very believable path for DS9 and the introduction of […]
