I featured some Dave Perillo recently and when I saw this I had to post it! This Starfleet PSA pretty much states the obvious!
I’m always happy when a reader sends me their fan art, and this week I got a beauty from artist Silja Siirilä of Finland! Thanks so much Silja! This a gorgeous painting of Spock, and I hope we’ll be seeing more from you in the future! I bet Leonard would have loved this! I can’t imagine a better way to start the new year! Thanks so much for sharing and keep up the good work!
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
Here’s a bold and dramatic trio of K,S, & McC by artist wynahiros from deviant art. Love this!
I started this blog in 2011, and have filled it with my clippings, anecdotes and art related to the original series of Star Trek. So far I have posted entries from my three original Star Trek scrapbooks (hence the blog title) that I collected in the 1970’s. I do have a fourth scrapbook somewhere but haven’t found it yet! You may have noticed that my blog is somewhat Spock/Nimoy centric 😉 , since I’ve been in love with the man for 40 years now! I hope you’re enjoying it and I hope you will explore the many different categories. I am especially fond of my original ‘StarTreKomics‘ that I post from time to time, and I also have been working on a series of Star Trek Posters that present the original 79 episodes as old style movie posters, among other things. There is also ‘My Weekly Spock’ segment every Monday that presents one or photos of Nimoy as Spock, himself, or as the many other characters he’s played. (for more pics, see my original version ‘My Daily Spock‘) Often on Wednesdays I have Wideo Wednesday where I post a fun video of whatever strikes my fancy (sometimes Trek) Every Friday I have FArFri, which stands for ‘Fan Art Friday’ where I showcase the unique and marvelous Star Trek art I have found on the net.
Of course I have many interests outside of Star Trek, (see categories on right) and they get mentioned here from time to time. If you should need any more info about me, just click on the “ABOUT” link at the top of the page. (where you’ll see a silly 20 year old picture of me in my home-made Trek uniform!) If needed, you can also Contact me here. Keep those
cards comments and letters e-mails coming!
BTW, I produce this blog in the most old fashioned of ways — on my Desktop Computer with an old IBM keyboard! I have a fun time posting and creating, and nice way to say “Hi!” to Trek fans from all over. Of course, I don’t post every day, and am very busy with my work and family, but if I can bring a little smile to you, my work is done! Knowing that anyone even reads this is a pleasure to me, Enjoy, and I wish you all Peace and Long Life! -Therese 🙂
Here’s today’s Fan Art: “Forget” by artist Lei Feiyang on DeviantArt. Splendid traditional art of one of my favorite scenes.
Today’s Fan Art Friday is two great works from the convention program. For winning the art contest sponsored by the convention organizers, both of these artists won the honor of having their art printed in the convention program. The first is an excellent original “blueprint’ of two small spacecraft created by artist Geoffrey Mandel in the style borrowed from the book The Star Trek Starfleet Technical Manual by Franz Joseph. (Mandel later won a greater prize, doing production work on later Star Trek incarnations! Talk about a Trekkie’s dream come true! )
The second is a fantastic pen and ink pointillist piece by artist Monica Miller called Pirates of the Empire. I love this, with the proud but menacing Vulcan and that leering sneer of Kirk. Monica did a lot of work for Star Trek ‘fanzines’ at the time. Fanzines were home-made mimeographed magazines featuring Star Trek-centered stories. Many fanzines were written by women and the stories were often erotic, with lots of starship romances; e.g. Spock and Chapel, and where the Kirk/Spock ‘slash’ stories were born. Miller created many memorable covers for publications — see here a similar design for an issue of Off The Beaten Trek. Unfortunately I could not find any online bios for Ms. Miller, but I’m sure her unique style was greatly appreciated.
Since Halloween will be over by next Friday- Here’s some Halloween Trek! From various artists —
Schematization on DeviantArt creates these very funny Star Trek ‘stamps’ (mini gifs) and slogans-with a great sense of humor, and even entire episodes squeezed into several seconds! Here’s a few, including Catspaw Hilarious! Then a nice crossover of Kirk with the Gremlin by artist Tom Whalen (strongstuff) from Twilight Zone! And then a brilliant ‘Regency Trek by artist lamamama I love how she portrays Amanda & Sarek! The characters there are as follows:
Top row: Sarek woos Amanda with little success
2nd Row: Chekov defends Mother Russia, Scotty hates the French, and Sarek tries again ( I LOVE Amanda’s expression and reply here!)
3rd Row T’Pring as snobby Caroline Bingley, Kirk gets randy, Spock does not want to dance and McCoy looks for alcohol. Meanwhile, Uhura looks ravishing in her gown and turban!
And on the other end of history, a wild, 70’s funkadellic Spock and Uhura from griffinfly (How cool is that?)Happy Early Halloween Everyone!
