For this week’s Fan Art, I created what I think would be a much better cover tribute to Leonard for this week’s People Magazine. I think Leonard was short-shifted in memory in the actual magazine cover that looks like this (and to add injury to insult, Kim Kardashian is on the cover,ugh!) For Heaven’s sake People Magazine – what’s up with that???
I was hoping that Entertainment Weekly or even TV Guide would offer a better tribute cover, but no, he’s practically a speck on the cover! (or should I say, barely a Spock?) It’s like he’s an afterthought — for shame! I hope you all complain to them. Here’s hoping they put out a tribute issue (I’m sure they will).
* A FAIR UPDATE: I just got my issue of Entertainment Weekly in the mail, and yes, even though his photo is postage stamp size on the cover, there’s a full page pic of him contents page, a very nice tribute article on pg. 28, and in this week’s Bullseye page, Nimoy is in center with the words “Permission to mourn freely, Sir?” (*sniff!*) They did a good job. I’m sure the other mags have nice tributes too– and I’ll probably post them here too. Sorry I was grouchy, but I’m still glad I made my own version of the People cover!
