I’m dropping in for a moment to share a couple more fun moments of Trekkieness here at the Bunny Factory.
First up, a sketch cover I did at the convention this weekend. A fan got a Shatner signature on a blank Star Trek cover, and asked me to fill in the space above it with a portrait of Kirk and his ship above. I get asked to do likenesses a lot in my work a lot (Mad Magazine, Batman 66, Dexter, Star Trek) but it’s never as easy to a good likeness sitting at a convention floor working from a little phone-google image of the celeb. Fortunately, the fan brought with him a nice big shot of Shatner’s handsome mug, and it turned out okay.
Second: We sold a few copies of David Gerrold’s TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES book, (the one with the all-new Tybunny cover art) at the convention….but we only had the softcover version at our table, and no one got to see the FULL wraparound cover that included Koloth bathing in the vile, barking, headless rats (his words, not mine). Well, since I drew six zillion tribbles, and my devoted wife coloured six zillion tribbles, you have to see them all six zillion tribbles.
And it’s nice to announce that my latest Star Trek-adjacent project (with oft mentioned Trek Legend David Gerrold), “OH THE PLACES YOU’LL BOLDLY GO” is gangbustering its way around Kickstarter.
But like all things Kickstarter-y, we need your help to feed the beast (and yes, I’m referring to my teenage children). If you’re hoping to see the love child of a Grinch and a Horta, or ever wondered how Thing One and Thing Two would deal with the Prime Directive, this is the book for you.
Check out the details HERE.
Ty the Guy OUT!
I’m drawing a cover that features the Bat-Eared Fellow this week, and promoting my Star Trek project, so of course the Bonus Moment is…
It’s a rerun? And nobody ever noticed you spelled Poison wrong?
Damn it, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a proofreader!
“Posion” is a term that means, “Posing with poison”. It’s one of them new fangled words…
You Canadians. Always making stuff up…
That Shatner cover came out “ok”? Too humble…it was awesome!
