What I love about this scribble is that it is so very quintessentially TOS. I love that the original series has such a distinctive look and feel and all the tubes and plumbing in the original Enterprise is so recognisable. The jefferies tubes were such an inventive and effective set piece, genius in their simplicity.

When Elliott over on Patreon requested this sequence I’m sure he wasn’t quite expecting me to get a little experimental with it. But as soon as he suggested it I knew I needed some way to include the Enterprise in the shot. But then I still wanted to do them face on and do as […]
This is another commission piece requested from last year, I’ve only got a couple more left to do! I know Captain Sulu isn’t really part of the bridge crew in Star Trek VI but he’s here in the spirit of the request. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these crew portraits.
I do have to say that as much as I appreciate the location shoot rather than green-screening the Engineering section in Star Trek 2009, it’s very hard not to see brewery (or a factory of some sort). I’m not sure why they that would pass. I find Uhura’s hallway workstation particularly hard to swallow. I […]
For a very long time Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country was my favourite Star Trek film. I appreciated the aesthetic and the overall Starfleet look and feel. I think when it came out I didn’t even think about the engineering section being a redressed TNG set. Which I feel is a testament to the way […]
I actually really love the TOS Engineering set, it was pretty impressive considering the restraints the show was under and gave us all a glimpse at the powerful warp engines though no warp core to speak of. It’s a fun room to draw surprisingly, I picked one of the shots from season one and it […]
Captain Harriman has got to have had the absolutely worst day and that includes the time Chekov go a ceti eel in his ear. Imagine taking your new ship out for the first time and not only failing to rescue a number of people aboard two ships but alos losing the most famous of Starfleet […]
I did this sequence in 2014 and I wanted to revisit it to see if my approach would have changed. I purposely didn’t go back and check it out and just drew it the way I would today. It’s pretty much spot on for how I did it back then – the framing of the […]
I did like in Enterprise how they made Tucker deformed due to the warp engines, I guess the budget really only stretched to Spock and Kirk getting new uniforms but I do think the engineers would cop a lot of radiation! I am also doing audio updates over on Patreon now so if that sounds […]
