FArFri: Emushi loves Catpain Kirk

Artist Emushi really loves Captain Kirk, as you can see here in his excellent watercolors.  Any artist knows that Bill Shatner is kind of  hard to draw, but Emushi pulls it off easily in these pieces, even in the first ‘doodle’.

Gee Scotty just isn’t lucky in love is he?  Let’s hope he and Mira Romaine eventually found happiness!   Note her creepy eyes!

For the Love of Spock Funded! Now let’s Help Celeste!

Hey Kids,

Happy to report that Adam Nimoy’s Kickstarter fund met it’s goal yesterday; ($662,640 total) one day short of the deadline!  I look forward to the final product of For the Love of Spock sometime next year!  Congratulations Adam!  (And I look forward to my bonus gift for contributing  :-) )

In the meantime, I urge you to please contribute to Celeste Yarnall’s GoFundMe page to help pay the cancer bills her insurance won’t cover.  Celeste has another surgery coming up in late July (Hernia plus removal of a large cantaloupe-sized mass and insertion an IVC filter in a hip vein to protect her from the possible migration of two clots* to her heart or lungs).   This is a very trying and scary time for Celeste and her family, and I know that the love and support that went into Adam’s project would be so welcome and helping here.  Please send what you can, every bit will help.   If Adam can raise over $60,000 in one day, surely we can raise the rest of Celeste’s fund ($23,665) within a week!  Please share this message with all who can help.  Thanks so much, Therese

My Weekly Spock: Convention Time!

 I found some pictures taken at a Trek convention in the early 70’s – (1973 or ’74?) Good old days! (And the blue Denim suit that keeps on giving!)

Adam with Dad Leonard in the late 60’s

Adam Nimoy’s Kickstarter fund to make the documentary about his Dad Leonard Nimoy and Mister Spock is coming down the wire!

At this writing, the fund is at $537,454.  The Goal is $600,000 and it has to be made by July 1st!  Adam must raise $62,546 within the next 60 hours, not a penny less, or he will lose ALL of his funds pledged so far to make this labor of love.

I made my contribution and I wish I could send more, but I’m hoping that EVERYONE who reads this will contribute whatever they can, for this will be a very special and wonderful documentary, or should I say  ‘Spockumentary’!!

Please donate whatever you can before the deadline of July 1st.  Thanks so much!

FArFRi: Dramatic Fan Fic Art by June in Blue

Here’s an incredible piece  which appears to be from fan fiction by artist June in Blue (thanks for finding that info Karen Bailey Wisecarver!)

Is Kirk dying?  Is Spock mind-melding with him? Probably one of the most dramatic pieces I’ve ever seen.  Beautiful if sad. The body types and faces of the actors are right on the mark.   (And of course Kirk’s shirt is well torn!)
