Another part of my childhood has gone.

You're probably going to be seeing lots of these over the next few hours, but Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. An actor and director who has done many things over the years, but none have touched so many people as his role as Spock in Star Trek. Perhaps it was a case of a relatively unknown character actor being in the right time, and the character of Spock owed at least as much to the creative team behind the camera as the one man standing in front of it All the same, he was one of the most visible parts of the team of creators who gave up something that told us we could all be a little better, and even manage to inspire a few to greatness.

I've always been a rationalist, and maybe some of that comes from Spock. Obviously, you can't take it to that extreme, but taking the time to stop and think is a good thing, especially in an age when so many seem to regard the use of your rational faculties as an act of disloyalty.

This was his final tweet, and I think there is some wisdom here:

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

He will be missed.
[Commission] Checkmate! by RJBartrop
[Commission] Checkmate!
Extraordinary crimes against the people, and the state, must be solved by agents extraordinary. Two such people are   Moffett, professional skunk, and his partner   Ires, talented gazelle...

I consumed a lot of Brit TV when I was growing up, and when I hear the name The Avengers, the first thing that comes to mind isn't a bunch of superheroes, so when   Moffett gave me a chance to play around some more with the gentleman adventurers theme I started in his last commission, I happily took it

Noir themed YCH - ArcRa and Red by RJBartrop
Noir themed YCH - ArcRa and Red

"I need your help. These men, they keep following me..."

Red has a problem, and it looks like it's up to ArcRa to solve it. Listened to "Harlem Nocturne" while working on it helped to get me in the proper frame of mind

The end result of a YCH (Your Character Here) auction I held on another art site.   Would it be worth trying one here?
