How to Illustrate a Reflection

T: new print: Star Trek / Mirror, Mirror. 24″ x 36″ Screenprint, Edition 175, on sale today at Mondo.


 

Spock's cold logic and Kirk's messy humanity exist at the core of their characters even when their personalities invert-- as they do in Mirror, Mirror, an episode from the original TV run taking place in a parallel universe populated with their evil counterparts -- suggesting a different kind of mirroring effect; one which reflects a familiar dynamic between archetypes. Independent of context or moral standing, their yin-yang like balance remains intact.

  1. Thank you for showing the process, always cool to see an artist's process. Love the final piece, the 'c' curve going through all the characters ties it all together nicely.

  2. So many amazing different concepts you could of gone with. I was especially interested in seeing how the 2nd sketch would of came out. Has sort of a Marvel vs Capcom feel to it. Hmmm nonetheless, the final product is still amazing as usual

  7. I suppose you can't sell this as a print due to a contract or copyrights? You would sell tons. I would buy one right now...
