WOOOOOOOO-HOOOO

get ready for a big treat!!!

I Finally found Steve Burg’s page!!!  Next to Ryan church, and Ron Cobb, My next favorite artist is Steve Burg. Steve is a quiet genus that lives to create beautiful masterpieces such as you see here!  Steve , Daren and Myself all started working in Hollywood in the mid 80’s, It was such a different time and it is so awesome to see how both Steve and Daren have so excelled in their careers, Such a massive amount and talent comes from these two minds and I am always awe-struck when I get to see their work. If you have time be sure to browse both of there sites and get ready to be blown away!!!  http://www.steveburg.blogspot.com

Here is the Ron Cobb Record jacket that Dan O'Bannon had in the 1970's. Dan was convinced because of this piece that Cobb was to be the one to design the Dark Star

 WOW it is a new Star Trek all around, Great to finally have a big beautiful kit/display model come out along with the release of the film,,, For the model collector who likes models of the Enterprise it usually is a long wait to get anything and even then end results are not that great…. the best models always come from the garage kit world and That must be where the boys at Quantum have their roots. Their site listed above really displays some awesome replicas and beautiful collectable pieces. I for one am very glad they got the Star Trek license because they now how to do a model right. I saw this piece on display and took about 80 pictures of it,, It was in a case during the day and the reflections were maddening but with a little photoshop they’ll be able to post. Ok be sure to visit the QMX page and see all the other goods they put out,,, If only I was rich!!!!!!
