“To Explore Strange, New Faces…”

Posted by on September 15, 2016

ygfi2810-copy50 years ago, I…I wasn’t born yet. But in September of 1966, the very first episode of “Star Trek” aired on TV. I never actually watched it when I was a kid, but as a fan of sci-fi, I was always aware of it. In 1996, during my last year of college, I decided to watch all of the first 7 Star Trek movies in a row…as research for an art project I was then working on. Pretty soon, I was watching episodes of the old TV series, along with “The Next Generation”…and I was HOOKED!!!

As my caricature career was just beginning, I found myself compelled to draw these actors from these movies & TV shows, playing these wonderful characters that I had fallen in love with.movie-scotty-copyriker-copynext-gen-trio-copyseven-of-nine-copymovie-picard-copyMost of these were done as “samples” for display at the retail locations where I worked. But by the mid-2000s, I started drawing stuff that had a wee bit more detail…just for fun!original-series-crew-airbrush-copypicard-data-copyShortly afterward, my fondness of the airbrush as a tool came to an end. I gravitated more towards colored pencils and Art Stix (which is mostly what I use today). But my fondness for Star Trek is greater than ever!old-spock-copystar-trek-2014-copyLooking back at these drawings, I realize there are still MANY characters I have yet to tackle (Worf, Khan, the “Deep Space Nine” crew, and others). So here’s to my “ongoing mission”—may it “live long and prosper!”
