Part of the day 300 celebrations.
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 know that Majel Barrett-Roddenberry is the first lady of Star Trek but I have to hail Uhura / Nichelle Nichols as the Queen. An inspiration for African Americans and women in general she is an important figure in cultural history. Plus Nichols is an amazing ambassador for the franchise and the ideals that it’s […]
As part of the food theme I 100% wanted to include this scene from Star Trek VI but finding a way to have them both in the frame was killing me. Given how long it took to work it out (eventually I found an inspired manga that helped me frame the picture and pose the […]

Original Star Trek 365 illustrations are available to purchase. Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal […]
Well, I couldn’t very well do Star Trek Disney Princesses and NOT do one of Uhura?!?!? This has actually been a nice little diversion and challenge. So I might do a couple more before stepping out of the magical kingdom. Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include […]
Possibly the biggest transformation in the episode Nichelle Nichols must have had a ball playing goodUhura pretending to be bad ass Uhura. Original Star Trek 365 illustrations are available on Etsy. Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then […]
I’m really so excited about hitting the 50 day mark, it’s been an amazing journey so far with nothing but huge positivity and an awesome sense of community around my silly little scribble project. I wanted to celebrate the milestone appropriately and so even though you probably can’t tell by the above picture it is […]
