FArFri — POD SPOCK DC Comic Art by Jerome K. Moore & Jason Palmer

Here’s this week’s official Fan Art Friday — This  is such a phenomenal piece I couldn’t wait to share it with you –

From professional comic book artists Jerome K. Moore and Jason Palmer, this is the cover of a Star Trek DC comic. Unfortunately I don’t know the title or year of this issue.  The story casts the original Enterprise crew into a sort of Invasion of the Body Snatchers scenario.   Now I really want to find this comic!

“Gridlock” (by Me!) Trek Screens as Art.

One  aspect of the Original Series production design that always intrigued me was the use of openwork grids as dividers in crew quarters, engineering, and other areas on the Enterprise and sometimes on planets.  The honeycomb grids were often repainted in different colors and used wherever needed. They were definitely reflective of mid-century style, which was probably considered most futuristic.  Yet somehow, as industrial as the grids looked, I somehow found them strangely cozy; maybe it was the way they were lit or especially the way their shadows fell on the characters at stealthy or dramatic moments.

All the grid-work inspired me to manipulate screen caps into this little collage, along with some other fancy openwork panel dividers that set the mood!  If you zoom in on this, you can see some of the characters. :-)

My Weekly Spock: Mother and Son

Hey Kids,

Sorry I’m late today with Weekly Spock.  I’m probably not going to post too much this week; my family and I are starting the housekeeping of my Mom’s things.  It will take a while off and on  throughout this year, but it’s good to get started. I know she’s watching over all of us -  :-)

With Mom in mind,  here’s some family time with Spock and Amanda.  I have to say, I was always glad that Jane Wyatt and Mark Lenard were still available to reprise their role in The Voyage Home.   

Here’s some Mother/Child bonding , enjoy.

FArFri — “You Seem Familiar” by Bolkonsky

This is totally adorable! A fun whimsical piece by Bolkonsky on DeviantArt  I appreciate that she acknowledged that New Kirk and McCoy have totally different eye colors than the original! (Really, I wish they gave New Kirk and McCoy color contacts!)   But this is really sweet; Love how Uhuras are singing and Scotties are swigging!  You can order products with this design too. http://society6.com/bolkonsky/You-Seem-Familiar_Print#1=45

My Weekly Spock — At Home with Nimoy

A little shout out to my  pals at Facebook for linking me to this great picture and article about Mr. Nimoy’s home in Bel Air.  An interesting place, definitely, although more museum-ish than cozy. I’d like to know the story behind what appears to be a burned out cello behind him.  I love the tea house!

FArFri — “Best of Enterprise” by Stumpaa

Here’s a great piece by Stumpaa on DeviantArt –A little something to remind Kirk that there is no “I” in Team!   Almost mystic, yes?  I love how Uhura is playing peek-a boo.
