Star Trek Week Day 1: Spock.
Star Trek popped up on Netflix Instant a while back and since then, all I do with my free time is watch Star Trek. So I thought it would be fun to have Jojo draw Star Trek characters. And before you say, “Hey, they aren’t super heroes”, remember there have been plenty of Star Trek comics.
When Jojo sent this to me online, she included some notes. Those notes are funnier than any comments I could come up with, so here they are:
“i wanted Spock to look bad ass, no hand thingy bullshit, i don’t need to draw that to confirm to the internet that i know who Spock is.
i know there are phasers, i don’t know what they look like. i imagine they’re gun things that don’t have to be very big cause it’s the future. like, in the 80’s there were ghetto blasters, now we have tiny nano ipods.
the only reason his shirt is blue is because red shirt people die and i think yellow is the captain? maybe it’s green. i’m hoping it’s purple. (it never is purple)
when i got to his feet i really thought about what kind of shoe one would wear in space. they’re probably black and boring, so i ignored that intuition and gave him some sweet kicks. that also match his shirt.”
Well, she got everything right but the shoes and at least she admits she just made those up.
