i must have read the comic book adaptation a hundred times as a kid…
doodled bones and kirk while watching star trek 3 the search for spock
hadn’t seen it in years (you can read my inauthentic haiku review on letterboxd where i’ve been writing inauthentic haiku reviews for the latest movies i’ve watched)
admittedly kirk in this doodle is a little more ‘wrath of khan’ than ‘search for spock’ (i love the ‘wrath of khan’ uniforms)
and man, shatner’s likeness is way more difficult to capture than deforest kelley’s. something about kirk’s posture in this sketch helped quite a bit
previous star trek mentions on screentone:
I made up a fan shirt in time for the new Star Trek movie that came out a month ago.
I ended up canning this image; or the slogan, anyway. It just felt too insider-ish. First you had to get the reference to Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope Poster. But even if you got that reference, unless you were a hard core trekkie, you were left scratching your head at the IDIC slogan.
So, instead I went to print with this image, instead.
I wanted to do a Kirk shirt as well, but I didn’t have the right one-word slogan. Yet.
