Captain’s Log: Stardate 202101.15. I recently asked my artist to do a colourised digital oil painting of Mr. Spock based on an early publicity photo that is in the public domain. Here it is, and I hope you like it. Live long and prosper.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 202101.10. I am pleased to present a colourised painting of a photo of Spock and Leila from This Side of Paradise. I believe it is in the public domain, but if you own the rights to this work, contact me and I’ll take it down. Happy New Year everyone!
Captain’s log: Stardate 202011.23. For the past few weeks I’ve been corresponding with the legendary Hollywood director Ralph Senensky, who directed seven episodes of Star Trek: TOS, including This Side of Paradise, Metamorphosis, Obsession, and Bread & Circuses. I sent him an article about my Star Trek class and he was great impressed. He then introduced me to Mark A. Altman, who is a best-selling Star Trek author plus a writer/producer in Hollywood. Today I received a nice letter from Ralph on Facebook, and I thought I would post it here. Live long and prosper.
Captain’s Log: Stardate 20208.19. In a few weeks I will begin teaching another semester of classes online, although only Kyung Hee students will have access to the lectures. We’ll use Netflix Korea to watch Star Trek, which I am pleased to say offers the remastered versions, so there will be fewer comments about outdated special effects. Also, please check out my new handmade TOS face mask. Finally, here’s me as Will Riker again. I know you can’t see my facial features, but the hair, eyebrows, ears and beard make it easy to recognize me. Captain out.
Captain’s log: Stardate 202007.28. I commissioned a digital artist to do a portrait of the late Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, to pay homage to him. What makes it unique is that it is a composite of two photos, and it shows The Great Bird Of The Galaxy in the engine room of the Enterprise. I will have this framed and hang it on the wall of my office. No copyright infringement intended.
