“Agnostic Icons is a continuous series celebrating wonder, curiosity & kindness. Using the visual lexicon of Christian icons and patterns derived from Mediaeval manuscripts, I am attempting to create a series of pieces that celebrate humanism, science, and altruism. Subjects range from fictional pop culture, the fields of science, humanities, environmental & social justice, and the arts. The first in this series are (unofficial parody) icons from Star Trek: The Next Generation (truly the most altruistic show that’s ever been on television in my opinion). Coming soon: Mr. Rogers, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Jane Goodall.”
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more beautiful rendition of Gates McFadden. She looks like a Mucha, here. And LeVar Burton! And Mr. Frakes, in all his bearded magnificence?! Hello, SAILOR. And baby WIL! OMG. The texture and detail! All those dark, pooling, inky washes? Those are greyscale galaxies that she’s folded into her linework. GAH!
