close to the birds but wishing for wings.
To boldly doodle where no artist has doodled before....

Or at least, not that i know about.

So i want to post this to ONTD_Startrek, but imma just wait for the next fanart big post and sling a link in there methinks.

I was shopping with my boyf a few days back, just wandering round the Merrion Centre in Leeds, when i happened upon a TREASURE TROVE of useless crap: Hawkin's Bazaar store (i lolled). Searching the cool stuff inside i happened upon something (at first) seemingly boring. I found a "Doodle-a-coin-bank-bear"; a white plastic, bear-shaped piggy bank complete with one small black pen for random doodles. At first i walked past, but a thought began to emerge into my overobsessed and undersaturated brain....


Upon the boyf kindly buying me said Doodle-Bear i ran promptly to WHSmith, bought a mahoosive ton of sharpie markers featuring 'Science Officer Blue', 'Beautiful Eyes Brown' and 'Star-Fleet Insignia Yellow' (and a few other non-ST related colours) and set about designing my very own Spock!CoinBankBear.

[Please excuse the pictures: to take decent ones with my camera would involve 1) finding it. 2) finding batteries for it. 3) taking the picture. 4) finding the USB. 5) connecting, uploading and editing. 6) posting. Using my webcam has taken only 3) and 6).]

So here we have the fruits of a rather bored, naturally unartistic, deeply happy Spock!Bear owner :

Live Long and Start-Savings Spock!Bear.

The obligatory closeup.

You'd be surprised at how difficult it is to draw tiny wee circles with only a regular sharpie marker. But here is our Science Officer's insignia in it's full glory

And because i'm a stickler for little details where my attention span allows; a close-up of his Command rankstripes :)

Next project is for my mom's finance's birthday next week. I'm making him his very own CoinBear: Klingon Commander Kor (hopefully) complete with real gold lame sash and netting trousers. Will post pics if i manage to make something acceptable.
