So this week was my pick. I have to say, that even though I watched TNG as a kid, I was never really into it. The draw of Wookies and Astro droids was too strong. After watching the New 2009 movie, this brought about a new curiosity with Star Trek. Now I have been re-watching TNG as well as the original television show. It's so much bloody fun, I tell you.
P.S Yes Riker's Beard is all kinds of Man, and you are lesser for not having one like his.
P.P.S No I'm not going to tell you which of the Captains I like more. Ha ha.
Hey guys! Our friend Marcus To was so excited about us doing a Star Trek week, he specifically asked us if he could submit his own spitball piece! He's a Voyager fan, and decided to do up Tom and Harry- with a bit of Doc in the background!
Thanks for Marcus!!
So I thought I would be pretty intimidated by the subject of Star Trek. But then I had a revelation. I would speak from personal degrees of separation. My Grandmother had the awesome luck of being classmates with good ol' Jimmy Doohan in grade school (she said he was a pretty cool cat). Anyway, what better character to render. He's always had some of the best comedic personality of all the cast of the original series, which made this pic all the easier. Done again in Sketchbook Pro, with a helping hand from Photoshop for the text.
Star Trek week! As a very young boy I used to watch TOS reruns Saturday afternoons on the CBC, so while I essentially know nothing about the program I still manage to have a decent amount of affection for it. I'm the kind of Star Trek fan who doesn't know Uhura's first name and really liked the J. J. Abrams reboot. The hated kind, I guess.
