Star Trek Pop Art Limited Edition Art Prints

I don’t know what it is about these two prints, but something about them just speaks to me. I need them both for my living room.

Illustrated by Kevin Keeton of London in 2012, he’s now given these two prints a home on Etsy. They are printed on photographic acid free paper with non toxic water based inks. The prints come in four different sizes: 15cm × 21 cm (Medium); 21cm × 30 cm (Large); 30cm × 42 cm (X-Large); and 42cm x 60 cm (XX-Large).

Just in Time For Whatever Holiday You Celebrate!

You know what would really bring this room together? A Spock candle! And as luck would have it, Hollywood Soul on Etsy has just such a candle!

This white wax candle stands 8″ tall, will burn for around 7 days, and features Spock, as portrayed by Leonard Nimoy. However, if your home or altar or whatever needs decorating, and Spock isn’t quite what you’re needing, Hollywood Soul has candles that feature The Dude, Miley Cyrus, Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi and loads of other celebrities in Photoshopped religious settings.

Stained Spock Glass Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall, whose the most logical of them all? That’s an easy question to answer when you’re talking about Mr. Spock!

GlassKissinCreations, an Etsy store in Latrobe, PA, has created a one of a kind stained glass mirror of our favorite Vulcan.

It’s made from black stained glass, cream stained glass, mirror, copper foil, solder, and copper wire. His eyebrows are painted on, and the mirror measures 10 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.

Spock Bacon Art

Jesse Azarian of Plainfield, VT has painted two portraits of Spock from Star Trek: TOS that are pretty interesting: he’s contemplating a slice of bacon.

Each of the paintings are 12″ x 15″, acrylic on Masonite, and are available in Jesse’s Etsy shop for $250 each. And yes, Vulcans are vegetarians, so maybe that’s why Spock is so interested in the bacon. He’s never had it before.

Needlefelted Spock

Needlefelted Spock

Everyone’s favorite Vulcan celebrated his 82nd birthday today! Or rather, Leonard Nimoy, the man behind the Vulcan did. Happy birthday Mr. Nimoy, and of course, live long and prosper. And that’s from the very handsome “Li’l Spock” as well! And the person who created Li’l Spock? Kay Petal, of Felt Alive. She’s a needle felting artist who creates the most amazing sculptural dolls. Be prepared to be blown away.

Meet Spocktopus: A Highly Logical Octopus

Spocktopus

Often when I can’t fall asleep at night, my thoughts turn to crafts. I solve all sorts of crafty conundrums in that drowsy half-dozing state – the perfect glue to adhere something, the right binding for a sewing project, where I last saw my size “P” crochet hook…

Plagued with menopause-induced insomnia, Karen at SewMuch2Luv lay awake one night and thought of crafts, too. That’s how she came up with the idea to combine an octopus with Star Trek for a friend. The result: Spocktopus.

I love that he has the gold rickrack on his tentacles – nice detail.

What kind of crafty meanderings keep you awake at night? Or what project would you work on if you had insomnia?
