Another birthday Gorn! (sic)
From E a great alternate storyboard from the Star Trek episode “Arena”: the fierce Gorn has picked a lovely bouquet of daisies to bestow on Capt. Kirk- knowing sentimental gestures are this golden space-Achilles’ heel. Spock shakes his head wearily to Bones, saying “He knows, Doctor. He knows”. “Dammit. Dammit Jim.” says Bones, as Nurse Chapel hands out the cyanide pills.
When E asked me to help ice the cake, I didn’t realize I had created the flying saucer of the Gorn.
Birthday loot with cake #47.
I spent the day devouring Kenneth Clark’s 100 Details (thanks Walt & Kaye), and made a few contour drawings.
