Even though Trek was over by 1969, Nimoy’s popularity was soaring from its syndication and exposure in Mission Impossible. A shame Baffled didn’t get farther that a pilot, that would have been a fun show. But Nimoy’s credits notwithstanding, he was and is always Number 1 with his fans.
As you seen in previous FArFri , I’ve posted the work of artist Tafafa and her gorgeous renderings of Leonard Nimoy as himself and other characters. Tafafa has admitted on her DeviantArt page that she’s totally fascinated with Nimoy’s features, and aren’t we lucky that she captures him so beautifully? As a Birthday Week Special, I’m posting a bunch of her Nimoy studies– from kid to Senior — Prepare to be blown away. Enjoy!
Well, Kids, it took a little longer than expected, but I’m still 20 minutes inside March 26th!
Happy 83rd Birthday Leonard!!!!
Your life so far has been amazing, and we fans are so thankful for the joy, excitement, and inspiration you have blessed us with all these years! Hope this Birthday was the best ever for you yet, and that you may continue to Live Long and Prosper! We Love you’ “Grandpa”! Peace and Long Life to You! Love, Therese and all of my readers here at Trekker Scrapbook!
Hey Kids — I haven’t forgotten what today is–Leonard is 83! In fact, I’ve been working on a TreKomic for much of today, but it’s so BIG I’m going to have to re-size it! Thanks for your patience and I hope to have it up before today is through! Here’s a nice pic of our favorite fellah for now in his tender teenage years! Happy Birthday Sir!
Since this is Leonard Nimoy Birthday Week, I couldn’t think of a better way to start off than having Mr. Nimoy in his birthday suit…well, half of it!
Nimoy did eight episodes of the Lloyd Bridges series Sea Hunt. Here’s screencaps from one of his most au natural appearances The Shipwreck (1958) Nimoy plays Vince, a newlywed trapped with his whiny wife, an old man, and Mike Nelson (Bridges) in a life raft without paddles for nearly a week at sea. It gets pretty desperate, and Vince is a bit of a dope, but he has incredibly great hair blowing in the sea breeze, and lots of hairy chest goodness..
Our fellow scrapper Corylea gently pointed out to me that last Saturday was Bill Shatner’s Birthday! I knew this somewhere in the back of my brain, but I’ve been very busy lately with work and projects. So without further adieu, Happy Belated 83rd Birthday to our sweet Captain Charming! Love ya, Bill!
(I’ll get your weekly dose of Spock up later today 🙂 )
This is a marvelous series of Fan Art is by artist Ayumi Lemura on Deviant Art. Kind of like what the whole main crew of the Enterprise in Assignment: Earth again, but this time in the 21st Century! Heck, I want to see this episode! Each character’s ‘cover’ works so well with their personalities. Great Job!
