Well, I’ve been working on this a while now–and I appreciate your patience! It’s the collage I was making to commemorate Leonard’s 90th Birthday — Maybe I should just call it a BirthYear Anniversary! Ah well, he would have been 90 all year!
When I started it in mid February, I didn’t think it would take too long — but no!
I had finished my Shatner 90th collage, and started making this one on my same ancient format (don’t laugh-much) Printmaster 16 from 2010! Well, suffice to say, that program, though easy to use, was getting overwhelmed by the 100+ photos I was using here and it kept crashing! It wouldn’t let me transfer the image to another file so i could finish it properly, so I decided I’d have to start ALL OVER AGAIN! (Time to ditch that program)
But it was worth it — Photoshop to the rescue. Not only am I learning better as I go but I’m also editing my overzealous use of too many photos! And yes, there are SO MANY wonderful pics of my subject matter, it’s a little hard to choose what to edit, but it’s worth it. Also, in the original, the various pics didn’t always work together, and I like to tell a little story in my collages. It’s gelling up nicely. 🙂 Here’s a little portion celebrating Leonard’s favorite plaid jacket!
Sooo, if you can all hang on a little longer, I hope to have this up soon!
Thanks! -Therese 🙂 LLAP

Merry Christmas Everyone!! When I came across this picture the other day, well, this silly joke seemed inevitable to me! Who’d like to help Spock with the tree lights?
Have a beautiful Christmas and Holiday Everyone! And a Blessed, Peaceful New Year! Love, Therese xoxo <3
In his inimitable retro style, artist Ale Giorgini takes on the Star Trek crew!
I made this earlier this month when I was inspired by the old Rosie the Riveter poster! I hope to make more, but not sure how it would work with other female Trek characters. But Uhura works wonderfully! Enjoy!
Before summer slips away, here’s some wonderful sidewalk chalk art created by artist Erik Greenawalt “The Chalking Dad” and his daughter. Wonderful likeness, and I even like the unfinished version with just the eyes that are so penetrating! But like summer, these joys do not last, so maybe we should get some chalk and make our own before it’s over! Congrats Erik!

Here’s a great piece created by artist Joshua Budich. It’s part of an upcoming exhibit celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, titled Star Trek 50 Artists, 50 Years Surprisingly, Spock has the biggest head in the picture (instead of Kirk), and you don’t even see his ears! This works for me! I feel Spock was Star Trek, or at least a good portion of what if was all about.
This exhibit features artists from around the world and will be displayed (so far) in Canada, California, Las Vegas the United Kingdom. (Usually as part of conventions) You can see more info here.
startrek.com is revealing the pieces bit by bit on their site (what a tease!) You can see more here
I featured some Dave Perillo recently and when I saw this I had to post it! This Starfleet PSA pretty much states the obvious!
