FArF: More fun from Dave Perillo

I featured some Dave Perillo recently and when I saw this I had to post it!  This Starfleet PSA pretty much states the obvious!

FArF: Uhura by Pocketuti

In honor of Women’s History Month, I can’t think of a better way to start than with this First Lady of Star Trek — Uhura!  I love this pen work by pocketuti!  Her eyes, the serene smile, perfection! ❤ (and pen is hard to draw with)  The artist does many wonderful face portraits, check her out here.

FArFri: Mr. Spock by Silja Siirilä

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!

FArF: Spock by Paul Hanley

Spock by PaulHanley

Hey Kids,

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

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Newbies!

oh myWell, well, it seems my viewership here has grown exponentially since yesterday!  I just want to take a moment to say Hi and thanks to all my new subscribers and for your wonderful comments here!

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 🙂

FArFri – “Vulcan du Star Trek” by Maria K.

Here’s this week’s fan art– This clever remaking of the famous French poster “Le Chat Noir” is by artist Maria K. (aka Stumpa).   I always thought that Vulcans had the sleekness and personality of the feline. A most clever homage, love the halo.
