More Cartooning TOS (Guest Star Gallery)

I couldn’t resist doing another batch of these. Funny how the Voila! app makes all the women on the show look even more doll-faced; Stella too! Of course the lighting and common soft focus on TOS added to it! By the way, for those wondering, a reader asked why I made all the characters look like children in my last post. Well, that’s all part of the app algorithm! Also, the original app gives you three versions of the original, and in the last post I cropped them all down to the ones I though looked best – mostly in ‘royal’ mode, whatever that is! For this post, I’m posting all the versions per character, (I love how Khan, looks like a perfect Mort Drucker caricature. You’ll see that not all of them quite work! Sometimes in profile, a nose gets nipped! And with with aliens; Balok’s puppet looks like something out of Salvador Dali! However, since so many of them look pretty cool, (We have some gorgeous Diana Muldaur here in both of her Trek roles) that’s a testament to the beautiful photography of TOS! Enjoy, and hope you’re doing well on these blessed summer days. -Therese <3

My 300th Post! Here’s to the 430!

Hey Kids!

I was glancing through my archives this weekend and I realized that I had just posted article #299 this past Friday, and my next would be #300!  I figured I better do something special for this little occasion, so I finished a collage that I’ve been working on for a few months now. probably my most ambitious yet — Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce to you — The 430! (be sure to click on it for detail:  I tried to add every notable crew member I could find!)
