Star Trek: The Arena - by Matt Taylor
I really hope poster collectors aren’t sick of me yet, because I have ANOTHER new print coming out with Mondo. And the subject this time around is Star Trek - specifically the original series.
This now joins the likes of Rich Kelly, Tomer Hanuka and Olly Moss who have also produced prints for Star Trek episodes, and I am hugely honoured to join that roster. Speaking of the wildly talented all-round good dude Mr Moss, he was the art director for this piece and his steady hand helped guide it to its finished state. Surely you all know Olly by now, but if you don’t then acquaint yourself with him.

Man now this is a stunning piece!
Hide Beer Using a Beer Sleeve
So yeah this Gem of an idea has been around for like forever. There is actually an issue of Archie comics where some dude uses this idea at the beach.
So just two things about this: 1. drunk people are obvious so the fake rapper only works for about 5 seconds. 2. The only places that prohibit drinking outside are like public beaches, parks and places like movie theaters but all of those places sell beer and drinks to people of age in designated areas.
It’s just a silly idea if you need to use this your either under age or an alcoholic or Both. Clever yeah sure but if you want to drink outside that badly just get a paper bag and drink hobo style.
You can pick up this ridiculous card series here.
Hqahahaha these are too funny
Just finished working on a new print that I’ll have with me at cons this year. I’d been posting the process pics on Facebook, and a surprisingly low amount of people recognized that the image was a throwback, so I’ve included the reference image along with it here.
Hope you guys dig it!
Oh, and my convention schedule can be seen here!
EDIT: I removed the image of JL8 #15 and made it a link. I like showing the new illustration on its own.
Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
"What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
I think the author does a good job highlighting a major issue that confuses me with this movement. Basically the quote states that every one defines things differently and we should not be so judgmental right? But if everyone’s definition of oppression is personal and selective than how do you define or outline bad or unacceptable behavior? I mean what is unacceptable for one person may be acceptable or liberating for someone else right?
For example the way I treat my mom could be unacceptable to my girlfriend and the way I treat my girlfriend may be unacceptable to my sister and the way I treat my sister could be unacceptable to my mother but if each of them finds the way I treat them comfortable and or liberating than none of my behavior is wrong?
See to me this is what your saying, I know that’s not what you mean but in the end it’s a very confusing message. I realize we all have our own self definitions but we are also part of groups and cultures that collectively define our norms ( basically we all as a majority define how we act and behave). These norms evolve as when we as a group agree to change our behaviors but still it’s the collectives choice for the main rules. Yes in a free society a member can decide to not follow the behaviors or collective norms and they are defined outsiders or contrarians. Still we all know that the guy eating naked in Mcdonalds is committing a foe paw.
I just wish that as a group all woman would collectively do a better job defining acceptable and unacceptable behavior for both men AND woman. That way I would have a more clear understanding of what I should and should not do. I’m a good person give me a few rules and I’ll follow them and most others will too.
