I have drawn all of the women that Captain Kirk ever kissed in the original Star Trek series. Part celebration of the women of Trek, part loving parody of our favorite Captain, Ladies of Kirk is a fully-illustrated original art book. Brilliant lawyer Areel, shapeshifting telepath Sylvia, wholesome Edith Keeler, they're all here. One captain, nineteen women, one book.

 Ladies of Kirk will be a 6x9", 42 page, full-color, softbound and hardbound book. It will contain 19 colorful illustrations, with a memorable quote and short summary of each character. By backing my Kickstarter, you can get your own copy of Ladies of Kirk.

Ladies in the book: Andrea, Helen Noel, Leonore Karidian, Areel Shaw, Edith Keeler, Marlena, Sylvia, Shana, Elaan, Ann Mulhall, Kelinda, Drusilla, Miramanee, Uhura, Deela, Odona, Nona, Rayna and Marta.

I'm a professional illustrator who grew up with Star Trek the Original Series. Recently I realized that I could combine my love of Star Trek, 60's fashion and drawing by giving myself this mission to draw all of Captain Kirk's love interests. As I re-watched the show and studied the women's characters and costumes, I was impressed by the sheer diversity of these women, in their personalities, employment, motivations and costumes. The only things uniting them are their love of Kirk and voluminous hair. I created this book to spread the love of obscure but awesome Star Trek characters with the world.
