I really enjoyed the first episode. The second episode was well made but I enjoyed it less. The first episode showed Michael’s joy of discovery. The second episode was about action and explosions. I want a Star Trek that’s about the joy of discovery. I’m also concerned about the way this series (and really all Star Trek series) racializes conflict. It feels like the Klingons are a stand in for Islam in a “Clash of Civilizations”. They’re being depicted as a culture which is absolutely incapable of imagining a relationship that isn’t about conflict and one party dominating the other. The Federation is presumably about Western Enlightenment culture, but it ignores the “sins” of Western culture including slavery and the crusades. I hope that future episodes will move away from the Klingon war and more into the joy of discovery but based on the trailers I’m dubious.
The CBC podcast "On Drugs" has an interesting show about the relationship, both good and bad, between music and drugs. Unfortunately, they left out the most common, and dangerous drug in the music scene, alcohol.

"Two of Reeds" I'm going to call this done, at least for now. I'm sure I'll end up revisiting this in the future. Part of why this has taken so long is that I've been learning new tools in my drawing program with very little time to actually draw this last month. . #infinitepainter #botanical #oakfire #artnouveau #reeds #cattails #illustration #lineart #drawing
"An artist's limitations are his best friend." My favorite quote from Frank Lloyd Wright. It reminds me that very often the best way to start a project is to define it's limitations. Once this is done, the ideas will flow. Available at https://www.zazzle.com/frank_lloyd_wright_quote_dark_t_shirt-235894444867770761 #quote #quotes #quotestoliveby #franklloydwright #fashion
