JAMES T KIRK by Jerome-K-Moore JAMES T KIRK by Jerome-K-Moore
Comic Book Cover Art, DC Comics, STAR TREK (annual). Pencil, Ink, Brush, Pen, Opaque gouache, China marker, Zip-a-Tone shading film.

Captain/Admiral/Captain Kirk through the ages.
For my money, the greatest Starfleet captain of all.

I loved this cover. Past, present and always IMHO, the greatest Starship captain - James T. Kirk.

Good question. I don't recall the interior art or artist. I don't believe it was Mr. Swan.

I've always loved your STAR TREK work. I grew up reading the old DC adaptation and my favorite covers were the ones you did. You were one of my biggest inspirations when I was developing my artistic style. I always wanted to see what you'd do with a full issue instead of just the covers, but alas it never happened.

Thank you very much.

Yeah, I'm a perfectionist, and I've always tended to work slowly. This made it virtually impossible for DC to consider assigning me an arc of stories to illustrate on their schedule. And I was unwilling to compromise on quality. There were a couple times where I came close (I believe I almost completed a few interior pages for a "ST: The Next Generation" Trek special for Marvel Comics.).
The thing is, I find it difficult to get inspired unless it's an epic story, not a run-of-the-mill script. Since I know I would only have one blast to fire from my phaser bank, I want it to be a kill shot. Haha!
Maybe someday. IDW told me they would be interested, and I find that very encouraging.

Well if you need any assistance I'm available. Of course, like you I tend to work slowly and am way over-critical of myself. I'm never satisfied with the finished piece no matter how good others think it is. All I see are all the things I should have done.
