Sorry I’m late today with this — busy day! This week’s Fan Art is a lovely tribute to Leonard Nimoy by artist Paul Hanley — I like that he presented two sides of Spock, the ever so logical and the softly emotional. I think Leonard would have loved this. Bravo Paul. :-)
BTW, have you guys donated to Celeste Yarnall’s cancer Fund yet? Please do here and remember to add the words ‘trekkerscrapbook’ in the comment box when you donate – this will help me tally all the donations from this group and when we reach our goal, Celeste will give me an exclusive interview! Please donate today! Thanks, Therese
As you may recall from my last update, I issued a challenge to all of you to raise $1,500 for Celeste’s cancer fund, and if we achieved this goal we’d get an Exclusive Interview with Celeste here. Alas, so far I’ve only seen one donation (aside from my own) that has the words ‘trekerscrapbook’ on it, and suffice to say. we’re nowhere near the $1500 goal*. But we can change this.
Did you know that between the “likes” on Facebook for this blog, and my subscribers, Trekker Scrapbook is 1,145 members strong? I challenge 100 of my followers to donate just $15.00 each TODAY — Donating is easy- just be sure to add the words “Trekker Scrapbook” when you add a comment to your donation here. (This is how I tally the donations). If you can’t send $15.00, send $10 or even $5– every bit will help! I know reaching this goal will make Celeste very happy, please contribute as soon as you can!
Cancer bills are almost as detrimental as cancer itself as you can see in this article. Please help Celeste ease her burden. Thank You, and wishing you all good health, LLAP, Therese
(And enjoy the new comic, Celeste! <3 <3 <3 )
*btw, the $1500 goal was my idea, not Celeste’s!
This delightful characterization by artist Sarah Miele isn’t TOS, but it’s just so wonderful and a lovely tribute to Leonard, I had to post it! I can hear the Italian Food debate going on now!
As Sarah writes in her description:
Like many around the world, I too have not been able to get around the reality that Leonard Nimoy is gone. I suppose it may be because he had been such an icon for so many generations before me that it seemed he would continue to be there. Forever. It’s sad, and now the absence feels strange.
But like so many have quoted “he’s not really dead… as long as we remember him.”And I truly believe in that, which is why, in a way, I still feel he’s here.
This was the piece I had put off for far too long for his fan club, the OLNFC. And upon hearing that he had been hospitalized urged me to finish it. I had hoped it to be in the March edition for his 84th birthday, but life doesn’t always wait around.
Nothing grand, but just one of a few finished pieces. I have a whole bunch of random sketches from many of his movies and I hope to bring some of those out and post them.
It’s probably symbolic that, when I met Leonard Nimoy a few years ago, I was soooo nervous after he signed my book that the only words I could speak were “Thank you.”
Thank you again, Leonard Nimoy, for making us believe, for giving us hope, and for being an inspiration.
Sarah, I couldn’t have said it better. Thank you for this beautiful piece — I bet Mr. Nimoy would have loved it.
I admit, growing up this wasn’t one of my favorite episodes, but watching it now, it has a delicious darkness about it. Michael Ansara’s Kang is a sympathetic Klingon, and ever so cool. I still think the end is kind of goofy, but in reality, wouldn’t it be nice if we could laugh away all our war and destruction? Here’s to the pursuit of Peace.
Here a couple of nice ones from the 70’s — always happy to find new ones!
