Happy Halloween

Captain’s Log: Stardate 201810.31. Today is Halloween, and my day off, although I do have to grade exams today. In other news, here’s the first two-person Star Trek portrait I’ve commissioned, featuring a younger me as Kirk and my former student and good friend Tomoka Yamamoto as the yeoman. Tomoka was in my class eight years ago and I still call her by her nickname, which is, believe it or not, Cheeky Rabbit.

Me as Adm. Kirk from ST:TMP

Captain’s Log: Stardate 201809.12. Here’s another digital painting of me as Kirk, this time from Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I love this uniform and have good memories of the film, which I saw when I was in high school in Los Angeles. Not as great as The Wrath of Khan, but a masterpiece in its own way. The art was done by Scott Jackson. “The human adventure is just beginning.”
