It is with a heavy heart I must concede that my trusty Packard Bell OneTwo PC is no longer up to the task of running the programs I need to produce my graphics works I hope you all enjoy. She has spent thousands of hours keeping up with me, but is now blue screening with so much regularity, it is no longer fun to work on my graphics. I have done my best to resolve the issue, but at 6 years old, going on 7, she’s passed her prime. That is why I am here, cap in hand, looking to see if some of you would be gracious enough to help me with the cost of a replacement. My salary in my day job isn’t up to the task and without a replacement, my graphics work will cease at the moment of death for my current PC.
The reasons why I cannot afford the replacement on my own are numerous. Believe me, I wish I didn’t need to resort to Gofundme, but if I’m to continue with my work and also continue supporting fan films, I have no other choice.

Hello all, thought I’d post up a quick update to let you all know I’m still alive and kicking.
I’ve been quite busy with commissions and private life, now I have a wedding as best man to prepare for also. So any graphical updates here are going to be few and far between for a while.
My inbox is overflowing with requests, so to all those waiting (up to 3 months!) for a reply, you will get one.
What should I do next folks?
Reply with suggestions of things for me to do.
If I pick your suggestion, you get a customised version of it.
Yes folks, I have finally gotten my act together and set up a print shop! Its brand new and I’m still uploading stuff. So be patient and keep checking.
Some of you may know, I got to live the dream and attend Dragon*Con in 2011. I’m still processing the experience and the only thing I can say is, you have to go to understand. It’s that awesome.
Anyhoo, I filmed almost the entire distance I travelled on my 4 and a bit thousand mile journey from Edinburgh Atlanta, via Heathrow, care of British Airways.
Most of what I shot is too crap to use, but here is a vid of what was usable:
Wow…. I just checked my site traffic stats.
Today, I have passed 145.000 visits since my blog went online in November 2009. This is also my 40th post.
Thank you all who visit my blog for taking an interest in my work.
And remember, I don’t make a penny from any of this.
Keep Trek-Art free!
Do you like my blog? Have you right-clicked my images and saved them? Do you have one of my MSDs gracing your website?
Well, that’s cool. Tis the only reason I post them in such high res here!
Yes, I could sell them, make some money, but that would take me down to the level of those I onced asked for such images only to be told to cough up or go away. Star Trek should not be about making a profit. At least, not amongst its fans. All I ask from anyone who wants to use my work is to either leave it as is and simply resize for purpose, or if they want to edit it, ask me. I do not require anyone to link to my blog, but think it’d be nice to do so.
So, if you have any of my work on your website, or just like my blog, I’ve created to banners for ya’ll to use. If you want to that is.
