30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Ten: Drained of salt

I’ve done this pose before but it works a treat for our salt vampire, last of her kind sneaking up on a poor unsuspecting Ensign out doing his hero pose on M-113.

The original is up for grabs if no one has snapped it up already.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Nine: Drained of red blood cells

Dear Todd’s Mother,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I must inform you of the death of your son. Ensign Todd was killed performing his duty in a landing party on the planet Argus X. 

I won’t lie to you, his death was pretty weird, even for Starfleet. He was killed by a vampiric cloud.

Yeah, I know. Doesn’t sound like a thing but you would be surprised how many of these types of encounters we have. Salt vampires, cloud vampires, the spirit of Jack the Ripper… I could go on but you wouldn’t believe half of this stuff and frankly I expect it provides you with little comfort.

Fortunately, many other personnel from our sciences and command divisions were not killed by the dikironium cloud so there should be some comfort in that.

 Yours sincerely,

 Captain James T Kirk
Commander USS Enterprise

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Eight: Dissolved *BONUS*

This is the bonus piece that will ship with all the pre-ordered Red Shirt Collection sets.

It will definitely be the only extra Red Shirt piece, I just couldn’t decide which one I wanted to feature in the main collection and I went with more traditional though this one is definitely more striking 🙂

LOL I’m posting this as the Game of Thrones finale is on so pretty much no one will see it.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Eight: Dissolved

No Kill I… after this one

You know what the sad thing here is? Poor Ensign Todd didn’t even break that silicon ball, it was like that when he got there.

It’s an exciting day today because I’m releasing the bonus piece for pre-orders of the Red Shirt Collection later today. It’s an alternative take on this theme and I’ll release it later today when everyone is watching the Game of Thrones finale LOL.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Seven: Vaporised by super computer

You know what, to heck with this whole security stuff I’ve already nearly been killed being shoved off a cliff, in the transporter, nearly vaporised twice! I’m going to transfer to engineering and just keep my head down and not get into so many dangerous situations.

Oh hi Dr Daystrom, I’ve got this requisition form for you to sign for…

ZAAAAAAPPPPPPPP!!!

Oh god, why?

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Six: Neck broken

There’s very little funny about a broken neck which is what I discovered as I put this together. Despite the extremely garish outfit of the Klingon operative who performed the neck snapping, it’s kind of unsettling.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Five: Vaporised by a probe

Ensign Todd grabs himself a quick bite to eat after an early morning shift. A nice fresh lettuce, tomato and cheese sandwich and a piping hot cup of coffee. He remembers that he really needs to send his folks a letter about all the amazing and crazy things he’s seeing on the Enterprise.

Then NOMAD vaporises him.

NOMAD is a dick.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Four: Rapidly aged

Unlike bottles of red wine, red shirted Ensigns don’t fair too well at being aged.

Okay we’re four days in and I have to say that I’m having a hell of a lot of fun and I’m drawing plenty of things that I had no idea I’d be drawing and I’m just plain loving it.

Let me assure you, getting older is no fun at all and whilst I’m still relatively young I have felt a little ageism in my current job search. So I know how poor Ensign Todd feels as he feels like he’s waiting forever in the sickbay waiting room until he shuffles off this mortal coil.

The original is available (assuming no one has already snapped it up).

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Three: Vaporised by phaser

This one is certainly nowhere near as gory as yesterday’s but I imagine the smell of a person being vaporised is probably somewhat pungent.

I’ve got a few vaporisations in the 30 days so I might follow this one up with more of the disintegration process (like in that TNG episode with the bugs and that guy’s face melts off in possibly one of the weirdest tonal changes in the show).

The response to these have been really wonderful and it looks like I’ve worked out a way to offer the set up in a collection A5 prints. It’s all to do with the wording and ensuring no one is confused about the unofficial and parody nature of the images. So they’ll go on pre-order sometime maybe even later today – I will have a pre-order extra for anyone who gets them and I’ll also offer anyone who bought the DS9 card set or am waiting on a commission piece (since they are taking so long to get through) a chance to swap to these.

I think probably the most important element is that I’m actually having fun again working out what to do with each of these and have a bit of freedom to do whatever I want.

The original is available (unless someone has already snapped it up)
