FArFri: Uhura Can Do It! (by me! -Therese)

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! uhura-can-do-it-scan-copy

FArFri: Women of Star Trek by Jason Potratz

Sorry I’m a little late this week — for this week’s Fan Art, here’s three lovely representations of  Nurse Chapel, Lt. Uhura, and Yeoman Rand by artist Jason Potratz.  Nice to see Yeoman Rand, who isn’t often seen in Fan Art, and I also like Uhura’s expression; as if she’s really about to give someone what for!

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.

‘The Bailey Bunch’

I always wanted to do a Trek/Brady crossover! This came into my brain as I was dozing off the other night!

FArF: Stained Glass Trek (by Me!)

Hey Kids,

I’ve always been fascinated by the beautiful use of light and color on the Original Series.  Those colored gels on what were really just grey walls gave the series a magical, yet cozy feel.  For a sci-fi show on a tight budget, it gave the whole series a special nuance of calm; like stained glass windows in a church.

Inspired by this lighting magic, I started playing around with images on Photoshop the other night and created these ‘stained-glass’ images. I kept the faces clear of lines so as not to distract from their beauty.

I bet I’ll do a lot of these! (I’m even giving them their own category).Here’s Spock from Whom Gods Destroy and Uhura from The Tholian Web.

Enjoy the serenity, Therese ❤
