Comic Book Cover Art, DC Comics, STAR TREK. Pencil, Ink, Brush, Pen, Opaque gouache.
The Trek trio welcome aboard a lovely Federation representative, eliciting the customary reactions from our heroes.
I illustrated this cover as a vignette, allowing the edges to simply fade or bleed out. Even with the minimalistic background, any Trek film series fan will place the scene in the transporter room. All I did was lay in the familiar "honeycomb" chamber pattern, and prop McCoy higher up to imply a platform step, and that was that.
Thinly disguised, I used Kirstie Alley as the Federation envoy, having always had a soft spot for her and her original portrayal of Lt. Saavik from Wrath of Khan. However, my eagle-eyed editor spotted my "joke," and was legally obliged to have another artist quickly draw in a different face. Shucks! LOL!
