A few weeks ago I drew the USS Enterprise from the reboot Star Trek series. In this particular drawing, I really, really loved the challenge of the metal hull. I had never drawn metal like that before, so figuring out a way to get that aztec pattern into a presentable form while still retaining the differing levels of light across the hull was a new one. Personally, I think it looks better in person, and I think I neglected the secondary hull in my effort to draw the saucer correctly. Although there are a few very strong sentiments toward the reboot series, I still consider this ship an Enterprise.
Breaking Up My Bones, Vinyl Theatre
Vinyl Theatre announced their upcoming album and tour today. Electrogram will be available on September 23rd on Fueled By Ramen, and this fall they will be on tour with Twenty One Pilots. Vinyl Theatre is a Milwaukee-based band that is absolutely fantastic live. They really got their venue going during Summerfest, so if you haven’t checked out Chromatic EP yet, get on it!
Well, this following song is pretty famous (he said redundantly). But it has ties to my two favorite shows in the entire world: How I Met Your Mother, and Doctor Who. From the former, who could forget Ted and Marshall’s epic, Tantrum-fueled road trip across the country? Or the heart-breaking sadness that was the episode Arrivederci, Fiero? And then Doctor Who. If you haven’t seen the video [x] of David Tennant and the entire DW cast singing along to this song, well then, you’ve really been missing out. I am 99% sure there was an Ood dancing in there somewhere. Anyway, the video below is of Imagine Dragons singing I’m Gonna Be in Scotland.
