'JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED'






















Like Bob and The Moondog, I was asked to donate a piece of art for the Crumlin & Temple St Children's hospital chartiy exhibition 'Just What I Always Wanted'. When i was a kid i was a big Star Trek nerd (The Next Generation specifically), so i guess you can all figure out what i wanted from this image. Still do to be honest.... sigh....

The exhibition opens in Dublin's Twisted Pepper TODAY so make sure you check it out between now and the 12th and support a great cause.

I assumed you were gonna draw me for this exhibition. Frankly I'm a little insulted. Nice pic though, I like how you did the Okudagrams in the background.

yeah I would've also had doctor crusher lying accross me with a severly torn uniform though! or was young Declan a deeana troi man?

Declan Shalvey said...

Thanks guys. Yeah, life has haggered my once-pleasant outlook on life. I'll never be that happy again...

The Okudascreens in the background were probably the most fun. There was originally more black space but i couldn't resist going in with white ink and doing a couple of doodles of the Enterprise.

Fran; I liked both in different ways but was too innocent to notice how amazing Troi's boobs were. I had it bad for Ashley Judd when she quested in those two episodes.

This is strangely touching. I love the carefree way your feet dangle.
