Live long and prosper

On his last post on twitter Leonard Nimoy wrote: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.”

It is always sad to see people that inspired us to pass away. But that inspiration, that influence, however, will never die. It will pass on taking different shapes and forms. It will transmute, it will get channelled, it will help the garden grow.

February was a busy month for me, I spent most of my spare time working on a commission I have nearly finished. But I wanted to take a break to pay a little tribute to one of my childhood heroes. Nothing fancy, just a graphite drawing on my sketchbook. Just my way to say: thank you.


P.S. Don’t forget we’re now on Facebook!
