This one, well it’s entirely for kicks.
After putting together those Quantum Leap book covers, I revived an old sequel idea I had about 5 years ago for the classic (back off, haters) sci-fi film The Last Starfighter. Again, if the story was adapted to books rather than film, what might the covers look like? Well, I’ve been watching Star Trek Discovery and The Flash lately, among other shows, so I borrowed Doug Jones and Tom Cavanaugh (more accurately their faces) to create these paperback covers.
Lately I’ve been exercising my photoshop muscles and my creativity by constructing covers for paperbacks that do not exist. In this post, I have covers for a trilogy of Quantum Leap novels that continue the story from the television series. For more on what that story would look like, find a recent episode of Cosmic Potato: The Super Fan Talk Podcast where I appear as a guest alongside host Shawn Wray and very special guest Christopher DeFilippis (author of the Quantum Leap novel Foreknowledge) and ramble on about it.
Yes, this just happened.
To be fair, this alteration might already exist online somewhere, but I looked around for a bit and didn’t find it, so I made it myself.
I was hit by a fun idea recent;y, so I decided to hit it back by turning it into a series of images. These are Star Trek themed designs suitable for framing, or square coasters, or even tattoos if you’re feeling particularly saucy. I created four designs representing the classic recognizable divisions of Starfleet (plus the infamous and debatable Section 31 with custom made division emblem) and another four highlighting arguably the four most famous “villainous” alien races in Trek history.

Just put together some new wallpapers for the iPhone 5, which can also be found in the image gallery on this blog.

Some written blog posts are on the way soon, for all 3 of you readers that are waiting. But in the meantime, I worked up some new wallpapers for my iPhone using an image of Superman originally painted by comic book icon Alex Ross.
One lock screen:
and the first of three home screens (more to come):
In case anyone is curious, we have original Superman, behind him we have the Player 2 version of him from the old school “bash n smash” arcade game, the white S belongs to a version based on the Justice Lords version from the Justice League animated series. Back row, we have Bizarro, and the outfit Superman wore when he came back from the dead.
After reading all that, I realize how geeked up it all sounds. Wow.
So I have recently begun my newest sci-fi TV show project. A full viewing, beginning to end, of the 2004 Battlestar Galactica series which I have never seen before. In honor of this undertaking, I designed a new lock screen and home screen pairing for my iPhone. First we have the lock screen;
For the home screen, I wanted to start with a logo. I found the one I liked the best on Deviantart from a user named cyberdrone2000. I’ve been trying for twenty minutes to post his image, but I can’t make it work. Instead, PLEASE view his image in his Deviantart gallery here!
From the logo image he made, I did some photoshop work on it, and came up with:
I’m really pleased with how this came out, and hope you all enjoy it too. Once again, check out cyberdrone2000 at Deviantart.com and look at his gallery.
