Beam me up!

"Safety in Numbers"

Hey guys! I made a piece for the "Beam Me Up: Star Trek Art Show", opening tomorrow 7PM @ Qpop in Little Tokyo. Truthfully I haven't watched much of the show, but I know that it's campy and awesome and that a red shirt usually means bad news for its wearer. So I just did a little something simple :) Some process shots below!



Also, I tried to use actual redshirts, so here's a little reference chart:

you can read about how they died here!

RIP, brave bearers of the crimson uniform.
