Art begets art. And, in this case, a love for Star Trek inspires some beguiling sketch work.
Twitter user @SerinaTirek, inspired by her passion for Star Trek: Discovery in particular, has filled up her feed with incredible, detailed sketches from this era and past eras of Trek. Her work is sharp, photographic, and just lovely. She’s given us permission to share it here.
She’s put out some great paintings, too, in a similar style.
An unexpected side-effect of the wonderful series #StarTrekDiscovery is the amount of energy I suddenly felt putting into painting. It's a kind of therapy for me to sit here and paint what I dearly, dearly love ❤️. Thank you, @startrekcbs! ???????? pic.twitter.com/Q5SnUNCCkj— GabiS (@SerinaTirek) January 26, 2019
Time permitting I will also do a sketch compilation with more characters for ep4, but for the beginning I had to sketch a shout out for those three marvellous actors who ruled their scenes! ????#StarTrekDiscovery #fanart pic.twitter.com/ncM2q1OQbW— GabiS (@SerinaTirek) February 8, 2019
One of the things I dig most about fan art is the way it can chronicle our viewing experiences and our passion. This artist’s creations absolutely show her love for Star Trek and are a lasting record of her joy watching it. And, oh, Stamets’ eyes! It’s great stuff.
