Three Cops In One

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 recently and tweeting about it, mostly while I’m drawing. A few weeks ago, this happened:

@jasonhohoho: Odo, Robocop, and John McClane are my favorite cops.
@slimebeast: @jasonhohoho Your drawing challenge: Odo. Robocop. ODOCOP.
@jasonhohoho: @slimebeast CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. One moment…
@jasonhohoho: My three favorite cops, combined. (Challenge issued by @slimebeast) #startrek #ds9 #robocop #diehard

Thanks to @slimebeast for the inspiration–he and I have been buddies since the old days at (Old days = circa 2007)

Oh yeah, I forgot it was 2013 and signed this drawing 2012. :-/

Fellas in Yella

Technically these guys are in GOLD not yellow, but I couldn’t think of a good rhyme for gold.

Posting Worf for last Tuesday, Geordi for last Friday, and Data for today.

Back. To. The. Grind. Blorf. (Not to be confused with Worf)


(This post is for Friday, I’m laaate, which is no surprise to anybody. Busy days ahead! Will any of it amount to anything? WHO COULD TELL?)

In my Star Trek: The Next Generation re-watch, I’ve gained a new appreciation of Tasha Yar’s tough demeanor, her butch yet cute haircut, her devotion to Starfleet, and also her bangin’ bootay.

So, in honor of the fallen Lieutenant Yar, here’s what I hope is a dynamic shot of her about to gain the upper hand during a sparring session. Perhaps her sparring partner is her pal Lieutenant Worf?

These colors… something about them just isn’t jiving for me. I think I tried a few different tricks here, and they didn’t come together cohesively. Better luck next time, I guess?

Gorn This Way

I watched through all three seasons of Star Trek (The Original Series) while I was working on commissions last summer. Of course, if you were following me on Twitter, you would have known that, and you would have been witness to all the super hilarious (and hyper astute) observations that I made during my viewing.

Anyways, the point is that my brain really shifted into a Star Trek kind of mode, and I would occasionally take a break from commissions and draw something Trekish. For example, I re-imagined what the Gorn captain from the episode “Arena” might have looked like, if he was dressed a bit less like a go-go girl:

This Gorn, as I have depicted him, is a big-time Gorn patriot. The emblems on his wrist bracers are from the Gorn Hegemony, the symbol tattooed on his shoulder is from the Gorn Confederation (Starfleet Command, Interplay), and his triangular belt buckle is a reference to the Gorn Empire (Starfleet Games). What I’m saying is, this guy is really draping himself in the Gorn flag(s). There was actually one more Gorn symbol that I found during my research, but I just thought it was too fussy, so I didn’t use it.

I realize that my use of the various Gorn symbols probably conflicts with canon of the Star Trek universe on multiple levels. I’m a rebel like that.

Help The Cheerleader Commissions, Round 1!

So I’m posting on a Sunday for what was supposed to be a Friday post. But at least my post was late becauseI was actually drawing, right? Right?? Anyone?


Here’s the first round of commissions that I’ve finished for Help the Cheerleader. To read more about my involvement with this fundraiser, please CLICK HERE.

Let it never be said that I can’t admit when I’m wrong. And yes, that was a double negative.

A year ago, if you had asked me about the-then-upcoming Star Trek movie, I would have said, “Why bother? End the franchise, it’s over.” Star Trek had been dying slowly for years, and I was not a fan of Alias or Lost, and therefore not a fan of J.J. Abrams.

Well, I watched Star Trek over the weekend–it was good, and the franchise is back. Not only was I wrong, I’m glad that I was wrong. Mr. Abrams you now have not only critical and financial success, but also the respect of this nerd. I’m sure that must mean the world to you.

Here’s Spock:

I may have enjoyed the new movie, but just to be clear, this is Leonard, not Zachary. Or Spock Prime as they’re now calling him.


As in, Comic-Con! But also as in, Khan Noonien Singh!


By the powers of black magic and unholy witchcraft (AKA the miracles of modern technology), this entry in my blog is being auto-posted while I am away. As you read this, I am at Comic-Con, wasting my money on action figures of obscure nerdy characters, wasting my time at super-nerdy panels, and most importantly wasting my dignity ogling super-hott booth babes. I will be back next week, and I’m sure I will have a thing or two to say about Comic-Con.

If you are at or heading to Comic-Con, please check out my previous post to see some shameless plugs of my friends and cronies peddling their wares at Comic-Con.

  • Fun Fact: The original title for this post was “From Hell’s heart, I blog at thee!”

Domo Arigato Mr. Mugato

(Posting early… )

No flashback for this Friday, as promised! Instead, you get the Mugato from the original Star Trek series–the version on the left is based on the creature’s original appearance, and the version on the right is based on the inexplicably innacurate vintage action figure produced by Mego:

I like to think of the clothed version as what the Mugato species would look like after evolving increased intelligence and developing culture and tools. Maybe in another couple of thousand years, the Mugato will evolve a better sense of fashion. Ha!

*Sound of nerd being mauled by highly-evolved Mugato*
