30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty: Stabbed

I’ve never really been a fan of Wolf in the Fold as an episode – the outdated misogyny isn’t exactly visionary (though in fairness HR on board the Enterprise would struggle A LOT today) and the idea that the spirit of Jack the Ripper is wandering the universe killing women is a little more Kolchak: The Night Stalker than Trek.

So I’ve messed with the premise because poor Ensign Todd has been stabbed but then that’s what makes it even funnier – he can’t catch a break!

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

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Nineteen: Vaporised by Gorn

I love that the Gorn don’t reveal themselves on Cestus III and instead just took potshots at the landing party from a distance.

Ensign Todd didn’t even know what hit him.

This is me testing out the whole micro.blog platform and working out how my site might connect with it.

Ummm here’s an image.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Eighteen: Poisoned by Mugato

It’s a biological oddity that a beast the size of a Mugato would have venom that can only be cured by a root that looks like a wiggling poo.

Yup Starfleet isn’t weird at all.

I do get a kick out of Mugato’s disapproving face.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Seventeen: Impaled by giant spear

I’ve been having trouble sleeping which has been exacerbated by going to bed really late after working on these. So the reason why today’s is later than normal is that I went to be instead.

Can’t stress a good night’s sleep worth enough.

Of course Ensign Todd here has had better days and that’s saying something.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Sixteen: Impaled by plant thorns

Goodbye Gamma Trianguli VI and good riddance

And so after surviving the clubbings, the exploding rocks and the lightning there’s one last thing for Ensign Todd to contend with.

The Apple certain gave its all to the project.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Fifteen: Transformed into dehydrated porous cuboctahedron and crushed

I always knew that today’s theme was going to be the hardest to be creative with.

I admittedly thought it funniest to write that out as a cause of death than what would be drawn and now I feel extra bad for poor Matt who is not a Trekkie and is also doing the challenge.

So this is indeed boring but I like my solution to the creative prompt and I didn’t want to show any of the crew being incompetent.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Fourteen: Exploding rocks

They don’t tell you about exploding rocks in Starfleet Academy.

Because the explosion was always going to have to be pretty straight forward I knew everything had to be poured into the expressions of the trio.

Still Got It

Still Got It

Featuring the Black Terror, Mr. Q and Silver Streak this is an illustration I did for the amazing Kickstarter Black Terror: Social Insecurity.

It’s a nice big A3 piece featuring three elderly superheroes giving an old school beat down to some atomic robots of doom.

It was a huge amount of fun to do – ages ago I did a bit of a portrait of these characters in the old folks home but I wanted to show there was still some life in these golden age public domain characters!

A huge thanks to Jeff McClelland for getting me to do it!

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Thirteen: Clubbed

Gamma Trianguli VI is a dangerous place, lightning, exploding rocks, thorn shooting plants and finally, the population can get a little club happy.

All of these things would kill a normal red shirt and sadly for Ensign Todd he IS an ordinary red shirt. But not Yeoman Martha Landon.

Yeoman Landon is kicking arse and taking names:
