Keith BirdsongStar Trek: The God-Thing Unpublished Paperback Novel Cover Painting Original Art (Pocket Books, 1991). Co-written by series creator Gene Roddenberry and long-time Trek novelist Michael Jan Friedman, this story was set in the era of the first Star Trek: The Motion Picture film. The story was never published, so this fantastic Birdsong cover was never used! Roddenberry wanted to turn this into a film, and despite multiple changes requested by the studio, it never happened. His Estate has previously refused to release the draft for the story, so this single piece of art is as close as you can get to discovering why Spock was a Hippie.
I’m moving soon and I would like to get as much of the art I would have to move with me into homes with empty walls. I’ve listed some cool stuff from ten years ago for sale on my site for practically the pure cost of shipping and handling, and there’s no additional shipping added for the rest of the year. Get some original art!
this is a badly composed view of heather’s bedroom, hastily colored and shaded due to me having procrastinated a bit and then rushed to finish before the end of semester crit. the perspective is really wonky but i’m relatively pleased with the coloring
