This Painting of Spock Riding a Unicorn is Highly Logical, Wonderful

Spock on a unicorn by Tim O'Brien

This is an original painting done by illustrator Tim O’Brien of Spock riding a unicorn and it is going on the side of our van RIGHT THIS MINUTE.

The piece was commissioned for a Men’s Health magazine article but art director Lauren Panepinto spotted it during a show at the Society of Illustrators here in New York City. Our eyes turned into stars, the Star Trek theme swelled in our ears, and we turned to O’Brien to ask how he could so precisely chronicle our dreams like this he must be a wizard is he a wizard?

Look at the whole piece below!

Do you think he’s doing it to get Kirk’s attention? Jim. JIM. JIM LOOK. I CAN BE YOUR EVERYTHING.

[Thanks to Lauren Panepinto for pointing us towards this glory!]

A perfect tributre to the man who sang,
"In the middle of the earth in the land of shire,
Lived a brave little hobbit who we all admire,"

Wll done.

I'm very curious as to what article this illustrated.

This is oddly reminciscent o me of the Epic Win Boba Fett sparkly unicorn picture. Allthough this one is a bit classier :)

Dumb question: since when do unicorns have wings...? Pegasi have wings; unicorns just have horns.

Jus' sayin'.

#16: I only found out recently. The internet tells me it's a late twentieth century application of the word. Of course, the internet is NEVER wrong.

Obviously, this is a crossover with the Madeleine L'Engle books and that's Gaudior from A Swiftly Tilting Planet that Spock is riding through time in order to save joy or logic throughout history.
