What an absolute pleasure to draw this. Rue McClanahan’s owner gave me a bit of backstory on her: She is a rescue mutt and I like to say she’s “from the trash”. Perhaps she could be a space dog on a trash planet? I dunno. Maybe she’s rummaging around a junkyard?Her name is Rue McClanahan […]
So the brief on this A3 HD commission piece was What I was imagining is a full crew shot of the original Enterprise crew circa Star Trek 2, in their spiffy red uniforms. Including Saavik. Maybe Scotty in his white Engineering outfit. Not sure if Bones had a Sickbay outfit for the movies or not. […]
I’m really surprised that no one has tried to revive SeaQuest DSV or do a movie or something, I know it probably wasn’t much of a money spinner at the time but it’s a solid concept. Always a joy to revisit the SeaQuest universe for a commission piece though!
Prior to this commission request coming across my desk I had no idea what FishCenter Live was and to be honest I’m not 100% sure I know what it is now LOL. But researching this “character” was a fun exercise and the client was happy so I’m more than happy.
I’ve got to say of all of the requests I’ve gotten so far this has got to be one of the most out of left field that I’ve encountered and possibly the most fun to illustrate LOL. A smart Hulk Starfleet Science Officer – rank of Captain (obviously you can’t see that here but you […]
You know what I haven’t drawn for a while? Anyone who’s been following me for a while knows that before Star Trek stuff I used to draw a LOT of zombies. As the illustrator and author of The Gentleman’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse I drew well dressed folks dispatching the undead for a couple […]
I drew our favourite astromech for a “how to” tutorial over on Patreon. If you not a supporter over there yet come on over, it’s only $1 a month and you get access to my daily journal and exclusive previews of tutorials like this one before the rest of the world. I’m aiming at 100 […]
I used to do these for the Star Trek TOS episodes (there’s a lot of episodes though in one season of TOS) so I’m going to resurrect these pencil & watercolour episode posters for my rewatch of The Orville. Apparently, we’re not seeing new The Orville until December which is a long time between drinks […]
Now that I’m more or less settled in to my routine for the Star Trek 365 I’m trying to push myself to continue drawing other stuff. To eas myself into that I turned to my Patreon followers who have been giving me some ideas of characters they’d like to see etc. Kelli asked for Vice […]
Bob was a recurring figure during my web comic series The Gentleman’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. I think I just liked the way he looked so he was a go to figure to feature in crowd scenes. I did have a three parter that he appeared as the focus, before he was turned, then […]
