Amazing signed caricatures of the original Star Trek cast
Incredible set of five colorful caricature sketches of famous Star Trek characters by artist Todd Tuttle, each accomplished in graphite, colored pencil, and felt tip on white 11 x 14 acid-free Bristol board, with each subject—Captain James T. Kirk, Commander Spock, Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, and Ensign Pavel Chekov—signed in black felt tip by their respective actor or actress: “Kirk to Enterprise, William Shatner,” “Live Long & Prosper, Leonard Nimoy,” “Warp speed ahead, George Takei,” “Ahem! You’re away from post, Mister. Lt. Uhura, Nichelle Nichols,” and “Phasers set to stun, Keptin! Walter Koenig.” Each caricature is signed and dated by the artist. In overall very fine condition. Tuttle is a Lambda Literary Award finalist author and artist who lives in Seattle, Washington. He began his art career at the age of 14 drawing editorial cartoons for a Florida newspaper and his illustrations have appeared in numerous national publications. Tuttle’s original artwork and prints are owned by many celebrities including Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Reba McEntire, Betty White, Stan Lee, Johnny Rzeznik, and Billy Bob Thornton. This Star Trek caricature collection, which Tuttle started in 2009, took over seven years to acquire the signatures and quotes from each cast member.
