The Opposite of War (ST Discovery)
The sketch for this was on hold for quite some time. Yet when yesterday Anthony Rapp wrote that he wouldn't be able to attend the tribute evening for Jonathan Larson, because his work schedule was so tight, I had to sit down and finish it.

Rent and Discovery - a perfect combination in Paul Stamets.

Happy First Airing Anniversary, Discovery
Today one year ago, the first episode of Star Trek Discovery aired in the US. This series has divided the fandom like nothing else. The vitriol spat on both sides was something that was completely new to me and let to me disconnecting myself from "Trekkie-Fandom" (and my life is a lot more joyful and harmonious since I did that).

For myself it was the right thing at the right time. I embraced it, fell in love with part of it, and found compassionate people who I wouldn't want to miss in my life.
Foremost the incredible kind and wonderful Anthony Rapp (who Plays Lt. Stamets), who brought me back to reading and discussing SF and Fantasy books in a book club.

So here's to many more years, I love you folks!

Four Reasons Why
Back to my usual colour painting for a moment. Those photos, that Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp uploaded from the Star Trek Las Vegas Con were just perfect!

Out of all the actors at that weekend both took selfies with the persons, whose characters were my reason to be a Star Trek fan. So if anybody wants to know why I like Star Trek: Each and everyone of my 4 reasons is in this painting. Heart 

Gates McFadden's Bevery Crusher was the sole reason why I became a Star Trek fan in the early 90ies. Without her I would have watched and liked the series, but I would have never gotten into fandom (Star Trek btw is the only series that ever got me involved in fandoms of any kind, even though I appreciated watching a lot of other stuff on TV). Then came DS9 and Nana Visitor's Kira Nerys, who took me by storm and cemented my fanactivites (writing and illustrating) until 2000. After that time I lost interest (Voyager and Enterprise couldn't hold me back then) and left fandom and all activities for 14 years.
2014 Emony from the German fanfic Archive TrekNation brought me back into fandom and I started rewatching the old series. I figured that I still loved DS9 and liked ENT a lot. And then came Discovery and with it Wilson Cruz' Hugh Culber and Anthony Rapp's Paul Stamets and I was lost again. Back to fangirling, back to painting like my life was dependent on it, and back to feeling young, adventureous and so happy again.

So those selfies were just the ideal combination for me and there was no chance on earth that I wouldn't paint them.

CornRell
Another one in my series of light Discovery scenes in greyscale. There are so many wonderful snapshots around on Twitter.
This time it is Admiral Katrina Cornwell and L'Rell, a power duo I loved to watch on screen.

Hi back! Hug 

Enjoyably slowl at the moment.
I stay away from most of the social media, which is very helpful ;), instead I'm reading like an idiot. Anthony Rapp convinced my to join a SF and F bookclub at GoodReads and now I'm back to reading like there is no tomorrow (I did this decades ago). It seems, everything I do, I have to do like an obsessed one ;) .

Hey again! I'm happy to hear from you. :hug: Though equally happy that staying away from social media is good for you.
Anthony Rapp convinced you? That sounds like there's a story behind it. XD Personally, or through advertising, or...?
What books are you on atm? :3

He advertised on Twitter and was so enthusiastic about some books, that I had the feeling, I should try reading again as well. In the book group he is quite active. I already had some Buddy reads with him, that I thoroughly enjoyed. A group of people reads a book at the same time and talks about it, while going along. He is easy going, well phrased and dives with heart and soul into the books.
