The Love Crusader (July 30, 2002)
Inspired by an obscure, silly but fun Sarah Brightman song, "The Adventures of the Love Crusader," the picture is loosely based on the front cover picture of the single with Brightman wearing a red and silver Wonder Woman-type outfit. Hints of Sailormoon were also added for this heroine.
Christmas Cat and Mouse (Drawn: Dec. 20, 2002; Colorized: Dec. 22, 2002)
Medium: Pencil, Prang color pencils
While trying to find something to draw, I looked at some of my family's Christmas ornaments and the cat and mouse with the grandfather clock ornament was just adorable to be drawn.
A New Crewmember (Dec. 23, 2002)
Medium: Pencil, Prang color pencils
An original anime character wearing a Classic Star Trek uniform, a hairstyle like Chibi Chibi's with only one heart instead of two, and resembling Tomoyo Daidouji.
Film Debut (Aug. 15, 2002)
Though this scene is not from Star Trek, it does feature a Trek actor so it kinda counts. Online, I found a photo of then-28-year-old actor DeForest Kelley (Dr. McCoy on The Original Series) from his debut film, the 1947 film noir Fear in the Night. The photo just begged to be drawn but the problem was at the time I wanted to draw this, my drawing skills needed to be brought back, since I did not have plenty of time (save about three to four drawings) to draw during my freshman year in college. Since that time, I attempted to draw other things that I could such as "Human Luna" and "The Love Crusader", both of which can be found under the Sailormoon and Original Art sections, respectively. After several attempts of drawing again, I felt I was ready to do a sketch of that picture.
This was planned to be drawn during the 4th of July weekend but was finally created on August 15, 2002. It took the entire day to complete but it was worth it. It was that drawing where my drawing skills have made a comeback.
And yes, itís surprising how young Kelley looked in that pic. -_^
P.S. My only nitpick with that drawing is I drew Kelley as though he is sitting nearly straight up whereas in the photo, he was more bent over while sitting down.
Other than that, I love this drawing a lot.
The original photo that inspired the drawing
Eliot (June 28, 2004)
Robert Stack as Eliot Ness in The Untouchables TV series (1959-1963). The first couple of attempts to draw him as Eliot weren't as good as this attempt linked here.

Tom Servo (Sept. 19, 1999)
For about a year during high school, I was watching tapes of the comedy/satire TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, known for watching and riffing (or MSTing) bad movies, and I drew one of Joel Robinsonís (and Mike Nelsonís) wisecracking robot companions.
Crow T. Robot (Sept. 20, 1999)
Joel's/Mike's golden robot companion who watches and MSTs bad movies with Joel/Mike and Tom.
Gypsy (Sept. 21, 1999)
The purple robot aboard the Satellite of Love, ususally seen in the host segments of MST3K.
All fan art was created in the wake of the first Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace in 1999. Even though that film, and the entire Prequel Trilogy for that matter, paled in comparison to the Original Trilogy, I still had fun creating the pieces below.
Anime Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi (Oct. 3, 1999)
The first Star Wars drawing featuring Padawan Kenobi in anime form. He looks like a ringer for Tenchi Muyo's Tenchi Masaki.
Anime Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon (Nov. 5, 1999)
Someone commented on this sketch that Qui-Gon looked like Christ and Obi-Wan looked like Davy Crockett. o_O LOL! Well, I kinda screwed up Obi-Wanís hair.
Jedi Knight Ahiru no Pekkle (Nov. 9, 2000)
One of my favorite Sanrio characters dressed as a Jedi Knight. Isnít he cute? ^^
Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon (Nov. 23, 2000)
Based on a photo I found off the internet. Note the Japanese-anime-esque eyes in both characters.
Ye Masterís Anger (Dec. 18, 2000)
A scene from the anime Dragon Half inspired this squashing of Jar Jar Binks. Jar Jar was somewhat tolerable (Iíve faced even more annoying people than him) and thankfully, he was toned town by Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and had an even smaller role in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
