There’s that great line in Star Trek: Insurrection: “Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?” Star Trek, at its heart, is about exploration. Sometimes that means exploring strange new worlds. Sometimes that means exploring the human condition. Often, it’s both. That’s what I love about Trek. And it’s something that I think both Discovery and Picard have done really nicely. So I wanted to showcase the Enterprise-E doing this favorite activity. A Sovereign-class starship, much is made of the […]
I’m not altogether sure what inspired this piece, other than my rather obvious affinity for kittens. I’ve been playing a lot of Dungeons and Dragons lately, so I’m sure that plays a part in the origin of this particular painting. Partly, I’ve been thinking about all the wildlife in the D&D world–how it can’t all be bad, it can’t all be monsters. So I wanted to show something a little more lighthearted in this particular Dungeons & Dragons art. Rangers […]
Decepticons, attack!! That’s what I hear in my head when I see this finished painting. Oh, and the music from Transformers: The Movie. I have to admit that The Transformers have been one of those things that has stuck with me all through my life. I’ve never tired of these transforming robots (though, I *did* tire of the Michael Bay films; more power to you if you love them, but they were not for me–at least, not after the first one). This […]

Xenomorphs are so much fun to paint. They’ve always been one of my favorite subjects (H.R. Giger certainly knew what he was doing, and everyone else who’s had a hand in evolving the look of the creature since the original Alien film deserves a lot of credit.) So, this piece was definitely inspired by Alien. The corridor has a very Nostromo feel to it. That’s intentional! I hope you like the final look as much as I do.
So, I call this piece of Seven of Nine fan art “Haunted.” Because how could she not be? This piece was inspired by Seven’s appearance in the Star Trek: Picard episode “Stardust City Rag.” In particular, I was thinking about Seven’s conversation with Picard towards the end of the episode. And so I got thinking about Seven, about how haunted she might be. And this is the piece that resulted!
I’m calling this Star Trek piece “The Flag Ship,” because it features two of the most famous flag ships in Starfleet history: The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A and the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E. Captain Kirk and Captain Picard meet (again?). Mostly, the Constitution-refit class and the Sovereign class starships are two of my all time favorite designs. I had a very strong urge to draw them together–both movie-designed starships–and see what happens. I hope you enjoy the piece as much as I […]
I was asked to do this piece as part of a commission. At first, I found myself way outside of my comfort zone. I don’t paint a lot of interiors–and interiors of cathedrals (or cathedral like buildings) aren’t a big feature in my repertoire. But I’m really happy I took on this project–it was a lot of fun to stretch my legs on this particular piece. If you look close, you’ll notice the Doctor’s TARDIS in there. It’s definitely a […]
So there was this image in my head of Wonder Woman. And in this image, she was battling something nightmarish in a kind of odd setting. Most people would acknowledge that image and move on. But since I’m an artist, I decided to paint it! And this piece comes very close to what I originally had in my mind. If anyone can defeat those nightmares, it’s Wonder Woman.
So, there’s probably a rule on the internet somewhere that every piece of Firefly art has to be titled “You Can’t Take the Sky From Me,” right? Well, I’m certainly following along in that grand tradition. This piece features the Firefly class transport Serenity, as featured in both the Firefly television show and Serenity, the follow-up movie. I know, at the point, Firefly and Serenity are both on the older side. But if you haven’t watched them, you should. They are both so, […]

Resistance if futile. Or… it’s not. You’ll have to ask Seven of Nine. She probably knows. If you’ve been following along this site for a while, you probably know that Star Trek: Voyager is among my favorite Trek series. (Okay, look–my “favorite” Trek changes from day to day… that’s just how it is). Anyway, one of my favorite characters on Voyager was Seven of Nine. And if you’ve been paying attention to the Star Trek: Picard promotional material, you know that Seven […]
