This is an amazing picture.

Chris pine looks like a puppy, Karl urban looks like a 5 year old child who got forced to be in a picture, Zachary Quinto’s hair looks like a mini tsunami on his head, Sofia boutella looks like one of those girls who wakes up looking perfect and John is just being John. I love this picture.

Star Trek: Discovery - Eps 1 & 2. I loved the Juan Ortiz 60’s retro posters he created for Star Trek: The Original Series 5 years ago. I thought it would be a fun challenge to extend that retro style into the new series. Here are posters for the 2-part premiere. I’ll try to do one each week!

When was the last time you visited a place without sound pollution? Not hearing cars in the distance is quite a rare thing, if you think about it.

Happy Valentine’s Day, I bear headcanons. Spock and Kirk, after retirement. They have an interview together because they’re famous starship captains, but Spock prefers to be known as the First Officer. They’re both past caring about decorum, so they show up dressed in civilian clothes. Kirk’s dug out his old green shirt and a jacket with a vintage NASA pin. Spock is bundled up. They’ve got a ton of in-jokes; the interviewer is bemused but entirely delighted over how affectionate they are. The vulcans are no longer scandalized—“It’s that science genius with his human again.”

Star Trek: Discovery midseason finale tonight! Check out the first 8 of my retro episode posters as you prep for Episode 9: “Into the Forest I Go”.

Great Pyramids of Giza - Egypt

The pyramids of Giza are some of the most recognisable archaeological sites in the world. The pyramid is estimated to be made from around 2,300,000 stone blocks, that weigh anywhere from 2 to 50 tonnes each. All built around 2580 and 2510 BCE,  the Pyramids here amazingly all line up precisely, with the Constellation of Orion. 

Despite the extreme heat that Egypt experiences, the temperature inside the Pyramid of Khufu (the largest of the three pyramids) remains a constant 20°C.

The most simple food becomes a luxury when you’ve walked far. Hot beans, roasted bread and a steaming cup of tea. Soaked, then frozen gloves and forgotten matchsticks are some things I advice against though. 

Here’s my retro poster for the Star Trek: Discovery mid-season finale “Into The Forest I Go”! Managed to fit the whole regular cast on this one. Looking forward to January!
