When the captain tweets your work
Star Trek - the thing I’ve watched since I can remember recently finished its 2nd season of it’s 5th spin off series - Star Trek Discovery. One of the things I enjoyed most from the series was the reinterpretation of the 2nd Captain of the USS Enterprise - Captain Pike played by Anson Mount.
As Discovery’s second season came to an end I fanboyed out at Mr Pike and drew a few illustrations of the good Captain and also his replacement (a certain Mr Kirk) but after the end of the last episode I couldn’t help drawing another image of Pike, Number One and the reinterpretated Spock (played by Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck respectively).
Anyway drivel, drivel, yadda, yadda, yadda.
I posted the illustration last week and got some lovely comments from lovely people on twitter - was very chuffed and humbled. Come to yesterday and that got multiplied by a million when the aforementioned Mr Mount tweeted my illustration himself! Day made!! Now if I can just get a geunine commission of a Star Trek piece - that’d be one happy Ste :)
