So! I’m the illustrator for Star Trek: The Next Generation – WARPED, an episode guide to the never aired 8th season, written by the super duper funny Mike McMahan. The book is based on his twitter account @TNG_S8, which I’m sure you’ve heard of. If not, go, follow it, love it, thank me later.
- The book is out on October 13, 2015! That’s like really soon! Pre-order it! Or go to (gasp) brick and mortar and buy it in person when it’s out! (I believe it’s going to be available digitally as well)
- Here’s the press release on the book: http://www.startrek.com/article/tng-season-8-spoof-guide-coming-in-october
- Here are the back and front covers of the book:
- So my name was on the official Star Trek site! My art was on the official Star Trek site! I have an entry on Memory Alpha AKA the best fan-wiki ever! I’m living out many of my nerd dreams! This is not a humble brag, I promise I’m being very overtly smug! Hashtag smugbraaaggg! Hashtag exclamation points!!!
- I have advance copies in hand, the book turned out great!
