Live long and prosper

I had to take a brief moment today from all my assignments to pay homage to one of my childhood heroes, Mr. Leonard Nimoy.

I used to be a huge fan of Star Trek back in the day and one of the original series' greatest appeals was in Mr. Spock. I believe he resonated with fans the most, not only because of the superb way in which Leonard Nimoy portrayed the character, but also because he represented a side of us that we could all relate to: feeling alone, misunderstood and often 'outside' of conventional norms. He was a singular person in an already singular environment; and he proved his worth by being the most remembered creation of the whole saga.

Mr. Nimoy's passing is certainly a tragedy, but I think he was a legend long before this departure. And he will forever live in the passion that he inspired in all of us.

Live long and prosper!

Back in 2009, in Comic Con San Diego (Can't tell which one, either it's Friday nor Saturday) I saw Spock himself from the distance as he was having an chat with his fans. It's an very damn shame cause I should've talk nor get an autograph, I didn't expect him to passed away (Vulcan never dies, he's Spock!)

To be honest, I wouldn't have even known what to say to Mr. Nimoy, had I the chance to meet him. And now I never will, so I pay my respects to his amazing work and indeed, Vulcans never die :)

The world knew him as Spock, I knew him as Bilbo Baggins song man.
That song really cheered me up after his passing (the dramatic reading by The Hobbit's caste at least, the original weirds me out).
May we all live long and prosper like Mr Nimoy (and also leave a weird catchy song behind to cheer people up after it ends).

That song was one of the weirdest but most interesting moments ina career full of those, certainly.

I must say Master Nicholas that having seen you illustrate the Fantastically-Dark 41st Millennium so often it is fascinating to see you depict a character from a setting so much more optimistic than Warhammer 40 000 as to be practically its antithesis!

 . . . I like what I see so much that I really do hope that you get more chances to bold go where no man has gone before!Nod

Thank you so much, my friend! This illustration has indeed resonated with a lot of fans, so I'm glad I could pay homage to one of my childhood heroes on his passing.

I do have a long-outstanding commission involving Gene Roddenberry's creations, so I'm looking forward to illustrating the crew again.
