C4 Comic Con - Finished (and Signed!) Captain Kirk Painting

Comic Con is finally over. I enjoyed it immensely while it was on, but there is nothing more exhausting that being in a giant building filled with people - running around to be one of the first people in line to see some of Star Trek's most celebrated people.

I was fortunate enough to get the painting I had done of Captain Kirk personally signed by Mr. Shatner. I was so excited and nervous, he had to keep asking me what I said when I told him I had painted it. He told me it was "very well done", however, and was really nice and somewhat shy/gentle about it.

Over the next week or two I will be posting pictures and/or video I took from the Q&A sessions - including Jonathan Frakes, Ethan Phillips, Nana Visitor, Chase Masterson, and the one and only - William Shatner. I will also be posting pictures of some vintage collectables that I came across (and now own) so check back! I will be very busy.


  1. That's awesome. Only your vocal cords froze. X) Sounds like you need some extra meditation to focus on strengthening the neural pathways in your mesiofrontal cortex. :P

    You must have spooked Bill too and made him forget how to spell. He totally mispelled T'Laina. Then he signed his own name as Calkhit! ;^)

    I should have meditated in this fashion, yes.

    And it is actually signed to Lisa, which is my "real life" name. But about his name... I don't know what he did there. I just don't know.
