Ensign Sue Must Die!

The idea of the Mary Sue in fan fiction has become such a stereotype that, although such characters really do exist (I've even known one in an audio drama!), they are an object of such ridiculosity (words fail me!) that the terrible plot becomes funny in itself. Kevin Bolk and Clare Moseley have decided to have a little fun with the idea with a web comic series entitled...

Kevin (who does the art) and Clare (who plots the storyline and does the scripting with Kevin) shared a table in the Artist's Alley at Wizard World Philadelphia last weekend at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. I particularly like the way he has lampooned the cast of the new movie, the Spock's in episode 1, Chris Pine's Cpt Kirk in number two & four and Chekov in episode five! Checkout the series on DeviantArt, HERE.


What Kirok did ... in June

  • My thread on TrekUnited, Graphics 101, has so far covered composition, photo references, body proportions, sketching using stick figures and character reference sheets. 
  • Started another blog to cover craft and construction projects as well as what I like to think of as men's issues, Igor's Workshop. Kicked it off with a simple idea for a budget Moleskine portfolio.
  • Continued my investigation that there is more on DeviantArt than just painting and drawing, I have featured ...

    The photography of Chonastock
  • Most of my spare time has been taken up with a secret project that could re-boot an old favourite on TrekUnited
  • ...However I have been watching Star Trek Specter closely. The more of it I see the more excited I get!
